The actor re-enters the shoes of the Magizoology Newt Scamander in the third installment of the prequel saga of 'Harry Potter' directed by David Yates,
The filming of Fantastic Beasts 3 has already begun. The third installment in the prequel Harry Potter saga about the Magizoology Newt Scamander has been producing for two weeks and has been Eddie Redmayne, in charge of playing the protagonist, who has confirmed the news. In addition, he has also told how the team has taken steps to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
"It's interesting because we've started shooting now. We've been here two weeks and, again, it's quite a new process. It's a whole new normal. Frequent tests, masks," begins the actor in Cinema Blend. "And I wonder, in fact, whether the masks will affect creativity, in any way. He may be a little ignorant, but think about it, as humans, we need to interact to motivate each other," he adds.
Filming of Fantastic Beasts 3 was due to begin earlier this year, but the coronavirus crisis caused its delay. In addition to changing the production start date, the film will not be shot in Brazil, where this third installment will be set. To facilitate safety measures, the film crew will be shooting in the UK.
Fantastic Beasts 3 will once again feature David Yates as director, who has already been placed behind the scenes of the first installment, Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, and the second, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. J.K. Rowling, the creator of this magical world, also signs the script, but this time with Steve Kloves, who adapted seven of Harry Potter's eight film installments. The cast is maintained. In this way, in addition to Redmayne, the cast features Katherine Waterston as Tina, Alison Sudol as Queenie, Dan Fogler as Jacob, Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore, Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone, and Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald.
For now, the film plans to reach U.S. theaters on November 12, 2021. However, due to the delay in the start of filming and possible setbacks - remember, for example, what happened with the production of The Batman after Robert Pattinson's positive - we could see a date change in the future.
