Even after firing one of our favourites Johnny Depp, the show must go on. The Fantastics beasts is all set to come. The film is now scheduled for a July 15, 2022 release.
The production house asked Depp to resign after he lost his libel case against a British tabloid over a 2018 article alleging he was a “wife beater.” According to reports, Depp’s exit isn’t expected to affect production and the role is being recast.
The Fantastic Beasts franchise is a sequel to the original Harry Potter story featuring a number of characters from the books, including Albus Dumbledore, Newt Scamander, etc. Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, while Jude Law portrays Dumbledore.
The franchise’s previous two outings rocked the box office, with the first installment Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them generating a massive $800 million at the global box office.
