Despite the many problems with producing “Fantastic Beasts 3,” director David Yates is determined to complete the franchise with five films.
In addition, he intends to direct all the sequences, unlike the “Harry Potter” franchise, which has passed through the hands of several different filmmakers.
The information was revealed by Katherine Waterston, witch Tina Goldstein, during an interview with Collider.
“David is working closely with JK Rowling and intends to end the story with five films, as planned. He wants to run them all himself and I find that very interesting because he loves what he does. Not many people have access to JK because she is very isolated, but they have a very unique relationship. I don’t see anyone else taking over the franchise. “
The star also commented on how it felt to bring a character to life for so long.
“Honestly, I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I didn’t know how going into a franchise was any different from making a single movie. The engagement, the length of the shoot, the trips, the press conferences, it demands a lot … Not that you don’t do it in a regular movie, but in a franchise it seems that these tasks take a lot longer. . But seeing the same people for so long binds you and that’s what allows you to do my job.
Recalling that the recording of ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ has again been interrupted due to a positive test for COVID-19.
One person involved in the filming in England tested positive for the coronavirus and, as a result, all production must be halted for the fourth time.
“A member of the Fantastic Beasts 3 team has tested positive for COVID-19. The diagnosis was confirmed following mandatory and ongoing testing that all production workers receive, and the team member is currently in segregation. As a precaution, we have stopped production and will return according to safety guidelines, ”said Warner Bros. in a declaration by the deadline.
Warner Bros. didn’t reveal what type of team member was positive, so it’s not clear at this point where some of the production they were involved in, or how close they could have been to others on the tray.
The premiere was postponed from November 2021 to July 15, 2022.
Recalling that the pandemic was not the only problem affecting production …
Due to the domestic violence controversy involving Johnny Depp, Warner Bros. decided to replace him with Mads Mikkelsen as the villainous Grindelwald, which generated more delays and mixed comments on the decision.
“ Fantastic Animals 3 ” has already been rated by several international media outlets, including Forbes, as one of the most problematic productions of all time, in light of the comments and transphobic attitudes of JK Rowling, creator of the magical universe, and the overwhelming attitudes of Ezra Miller.
The cast also includes Dan Fogler, Jude Law, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol.
David Yates is directing the project from a script signed by Steven Kloves and JK Rowling.
