Fans of Fantastic Beasts 4 are eager to know if the movie will ever see the light of the day. Since the release of The Secrets of Dumbledore on April 15, 2022, no updates have been provided on Fantastic Beats4. In January, lead actor Eddie Redmayne revealed the potential film is “not something that’s on the cards” presently, but anything can happen in the future. Here’s what director David Yates said about the film.
Status of Fantastic Beasts 4
In an interview with Deadline, director David Yates discussed the chances of the development of Fantastic Beasts 4. “Do you know I started on ‘Potter’ in 2005, and it’s been an amazing journey, and we made the last one, ‘The Secrets of Dumbledore,’ through the pandemic, pre-vaccine. So we were shooting that movie without vaccines, and it took its toll, it was a tough ‘ol ride to get it all together. Huge affection, and a lovely group of people that I worked with, and I love all of them, but we haven’t had a conversation since we finished it.” Yates continued, “It’s been about, ‘Let’s just park it and let’s be done for awhile,’ so never say never, I would say, but I’m very excited about moving on…”
It seems as though Fantastic Beasts 4 is not the priority for Warner Bros. According to a 2022 report, the continuation of the franchise would highly depend on the triumph of The Secrets of Dumbledore. Since it grossed $407 million on a $200 million budget, perhaps Warner Bros. doesn’t foresee success in the continuation of the franchise.
Each season of the upcoming Harry Potter reboot (TV series) will follow one full book from J.K. Rowling’s published works. Season 1 will be based on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Season 2 will be about Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and so on. As Warner Bros. plans on casting new roles for every character, fans can’t expect to see the popular cast reprising their roles.
