The Unbelievable Beasts collection hasn’t been setting the field workplace on fireplace in fairly the identical means because the Harry Potter films did earlier than it, however that does not imply the collection hasn’t been earning money or that it does not have followers trying ahead to the following entry. These followers ready on an evidence of the bomb dropped on the finish of The Crimes of Grindlewald might want to wait a bit longer, because the third entry within the franchise has been given an official launch date of November 12, 2021.
This places half three a bit behind the anticipated schedule, as the primary two movies got here out two years aside, which might have resulted in Unbelievable Beasts 3 popping out in November of 2020, as an alternative, it’ll come out a full yr later.
The additional yr of time could possibly be for any variety of causes. Nevertheless, we are able to make certain that the additional yr is not taking place as a consequence of any vital retooling of the franchise’s deliberate construction. The announcement of the date additionally confirms that the Unbelievable Beasts franchise continues to be a part of a five-film collection.
There was some query as as to whether or not we’d nonetheless get all 5 introduced movies within the Unbelievable Beasts collection after the latest film, Unbelievable Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald, turned the bottom grossing film in the complete Wizarding World franchise. It turned the primary film to do lower than $200 million domestically and the primary to do lower than $700 million globally.
After all, “underperforming” for a Wizarding World film is a relative time period. The film nonetheless did over $650 million and was a high 10 grossing film in 2018.
It was introduced a number of months in the past that Unbelievable Beasts 3 wouldn’t go into manufacturing this summer time as beforehand scheduled, and would as an alternative begin filming within the fall. Plainly the fast turnaround between the primary two movies could also be getting the blame for the second movie’s poorer efficiency, and it was determined the third movie wanted extra time to prep.
Whereas followers will not wish to wait for one more film, the wait is the one damaging to letting the following film have extra time. The extra time all facets of the film should do their finest work, the higher it’ll all be, and even the followers who want the film was coming quicker will definitely be happier with a greater film, irrespective of how lengthy it takes.
Extra to come back…
