Lots of movies are being delayed in the current situation, and among them is the third Fantastic Beasts film, which has yet to announced it title. Some might decide they're less interested in the next entry given the disappointment of The Crimes Of Grindelwald, but actor Dan Fogler seems enthused by the script.

Fogler, who plays No-Maj Jacob Kowalski in the films, has seen the screenplay and, talking with Syfy Wire, he indicated that events are ramping up in the story. "I can say I read the script and the character development is really lovely and it’s very similar to the feel of the first movie, which I think is great," Fogler tells the outlet. "It’s leading toward this massive war with the backdrop of World War II, so you can just imagine epic battle scenes are coming."

Setting the future of the films against one of mankind's biggest conflicts feels like a smart move, and hopefully the fact that JK Rowling collaborated with veteran Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves on the third movie's script will also help. As for the delay, Fogler's feeling hopeful. "We’re just waiting," he said. "I guess when everybody else starts back up, when the mechanism starts to move again and everybody starts to get back to work, that’s when we’ll get back to work. Hopefully, sooner than later."

The next Fantastic Beasts is still scheduled to arrive on 21 November next year, though we'll see if it keeps that date given all the release date juggling that has been going on, and will continue for the next few months.
