What is the release date of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore?
Warner Bros. announced that they were going to release Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore on April 15, 2022. Originally, it was planned to come out on July 15, 2022. This now will have the latest Fantastic Beasts movie going up against DreamWorks Animation’s The Bad Guys and Sandra Bullock-Channing Tatum’s movie The Lost City of D on its opening weekend.
A friendly reminder. Warner Bros. has already announced that it is not going to release its films on HBO Max at the same time as theaters. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and all movies coming out in 2022 will have an exclusive release before they show up on streaming or digital services.
What is the plot of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore?
The first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film followed a man named Newt Scamander. He traveled to America with a magical suitcase that contained all kinds of beasts. Most of the story is about Newt’s animals getting out in New York City. He gets help from witches Tina and Queenie Goldstein and muggles Jacob Kowalski to help him find them. But at the end of the movie, it is shown that it was Gellert Grindelwald who was really behind everything.
The sequel to the movie, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, still had creatures in it. But this time the story was about Newt tracking down and stopping Grindelwald. The film ended with our group of heroes split and Grindelwald gaining a group of followers as he plans to wage war against muggles.
Plot details for the third Fantastic Beasts movie are being kept secret. There is no description on IMDb. The new title of the movie is “Secrets of Dumbledore.” We can expect that Jude Law’s character will be in the film more than he was before.

Who are the directors?
Since 2007’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, all Harry Potter movies have been made by David Yates. He will continue to make them with Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
Yates has only directed Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies since 2007. The only time he didn’t was in 2016 when he directed The Legend of Tarzan before Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Fantastic Beasts. This won’t change anytime soon, because this director will be directing not just one movie in the series but two more.
