The original plan for the Fantastic Beasts series was to make five fantasy movies. Even though Fantastic Beasts 3 is an important part of the series, there is still a lot more to come. The end of Fantastic Beasts 3 was a bit of a cliffhanger, so fans are naturally curious about what will happen next in the series.
Will Dumbledore be able to stop Gellert Grindelwald’s tyrannical plans to destroy the muggles once and for all? What kinds of magical creatures will Newt Scamander meet on his next adventure? And will we ever see Tina Goldstein again? Step into our own Room of Requirement to find out everything you need to know about the release date of Fantastic Beasts 4.
Fantastic Beasts 4: Potential Release Date
We don’t know for sure when Fantastic Beasts 4 or Fantastic Beasts 5 will come out, so all we can do is guess.
The Secrets of Dumbledore came out in theatres in April 2022, almost four years after the second movie. This was due to a number of delays. A big reason for the delay was that it was hard to film because of the ongoing global pandemic.
After the first two movies came out in November 2016 and November 2018, we thought the fourth and fifth movies would come out in November 2022 and November 2024.
This won’t be true anymore, but if the fourth movie does come out, maybe we won’t have to wait as long. You might still have to wait until at least 2024 though.
Plot Of Fantastic Beasts 4
The Secrets of Dumbledore doesn’t end with a cliffhanger like The Crimes of Grindelwald did. Instead, it pretty much wraps up the main plot points.
As was already said, we find out that Credence is a Dumbledore, and we also find out that Albus and Aberforth’s sister Ariana was an Obscurial, just like Credence. This has been a long-held theory among Harry Potter fans.
In the last episode, Grindelwald tries to kill Credence for betraying him, which breaks the blood pact between Dumbledore and him. Dumbledore protects Credence without thinking about Grindelwald, and their “spells met,” which broke the pact.
This sets up their big fight in the future, which we know will happen because it’s in the Harry Potter canon. Rowling says that the movies will show 19 years of the history of the Wizarding World. That will get the last one to 1945, which is the year Dumbledore beat Grindelwald and took the Elder Wand from him.
Also in that year, Tom Riddle, who would become Voldemort, graduated from Hogwarts. Taking everything into account, it seems unlikely that the final battle between Dumbledore and his old friend won’t happen in the fifth movie.
In those 19 years, Voldemort was born, and things happened that led to him making his first Horcruxes. During this time, we know less about what happens to Newt and the other characters in Fantastic Beasts. So, if the fourth and fifth movies happen, they could do anything in them.
At the end of The Secrets of Dumbledore, Queenie and Jacob get married, so maybe they’ll use that as a chance to leave this life behind.
