Production on the next Fantastic Beasts film has been temporarily halted after a positive COVID-19 test result for one of a “team member.” Warner Bros. has since shared the following:
“A team member from Fantastic Beasts 3 has tested positive for COVID-19. The diagnosis was confirmed as a result of required and ongoing testing that all production employees receive, and the team member is currently in isolation. Out of an abundance of caution, Fantastic Beasts 3 paused production and will be back up in accordance with safety guidelines.”
The film is expected to be released in July of 2022.
