Finally: Shooting of "Fantastic Beasts 3" has started

After several postponements, the time has come, but what's going on with Johnny Depp?

So far the production of "Fantastic Beasts 3" was not really blessed with luck. First, the start of the shooting was postponed twice, and then Johnny Depp's trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard also occurred. As lead actor Eddie Redmayne now revealed in an interview with Cinema Blend, the shooting has been going on for two weeks - of course not without masks and regular tests. The forced break, however, is supposed to have done no harm to the motivation on set, because according to Redmayne, everyone is doing their best. Something else that is also beneficial is the postponement of Johnny Depp's trial, after all, a renunciation of the actor would probably not have been an option. As Deadline magazine reports, the 57-year-old's role is quite big, which is why he is needed on set from October to February. Good news for everyone involved, "Fantastic Beasts 3" is scheduled to be released on November 12, 2021.
