‘Fantastic Beasts 4 and 5’ do not have the green light yet and will depend on the box office of ‘The secrets of Dumbledore’


With ‘Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets’ about to be released in North America, Warner Bros. would be seriously thinking about what will happen to the saga from there. Despite stating on several occasions that the main idea was to make five films, Variety reports that the studio has yet to confirm a fourth or fifth installment, stating that there is no script for ‘Fantastic Beasts 4’ yet.

The decision would have been considered after all the headaches they suffered since they started with ‘Fantastic Animals and where to find them’ in 2016. Starting with the cast, because the last to be added to Warner’s list of problems was Ezra Miller after his recent controversies, which could have led the study to paralyze their projects with him. The other great protagonist was Johnny Depp and his famous departure from the saga, although the good reception of Mads Mikkelsen as Grindelwald has turned out to be good news at last.

With a pandemic also involved, the production of ‘Fantastic Animals: Dumbledore’s Secrets’ also had to deal with the constant controversies of JK Rowling and her support for trans-exclusive feminists, as well as the censorship of films in countries like China, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates or Russia.

Potter dependency?

Being the saga of ‘Harry Potter’ one of the two flagships, along with the DC Universe, of Warner Bros in the cinema, it is more than likely that the producer will choose to continue expanding the magical universe, whether with ‘Fantastic Animals’ or not .

One of the options -since he has expressed some interest- could be the return of Chris Columbus, director of ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ and ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets2’, at the controls of a new adaptation. This time it would be the sequel book ‘The Cursed Legacy’, set 19 years after the end of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2’ and would bring back the (not so) young wizard with glasses and a scar on forehead. Of course, they do not have Daniel Radcliffe.

With everything in limbo and decisions yet to be made, Warner Bros awaits the reception that ‘Fantastic Animals 3’ has to act accordingly. For now, it premiered on April 8 in theaters in Spain at number 1.
