Why Fantastic Beasts 4 Should Not Be Canceled

Here is why we think Fantastic Beasts 4 should not be canceled even though the Ezra Miller controversy has threatened everything that man has been involved in. That is not the only controversy plaguing the movie franchise. Things have been getting consistently worse since the second film’s release and the lukewarm response it received from the audiences. The Crimes of Grindlewald failed to achieve the same level of success as the first movie and this resulted in the studio losing faith in the franchise. Hence, the studio announced that if the third movie did not achieve commercial success the studio will halt production on the franchise.

Unfortunately, everyone’s worst fears have come true. Despite featuring some of the most important characters of the Harry Potter franchise as their protagonists, Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore failed to create proper hype for its release. This resulted in the studio re-evaluating its plans for the franchise. The Crimes of Grindlewald made $654 million worldwide, which is quite low for such a big release. Moreover, The Secrets of Dumbledore made an even lower $396 million worldwide. This shows that the fans are losing interest in the events of the franchise and no longer wish to watch it, which is quite sad if you ask me.

What is even sadder is the fact that The Secrets of Dumbledore could not even crack $100 million in gross sales in the domestic market. Part of the reason for this is the controversies surrounding its actors. Johnny Depp was asked to step down because of the domestic violence allegations against him, Ezra Miller was arrested in Hawaii and his actions have created problems for the projects he has been involved in. Moreover, J.K. Rowling also took to Twitter and made some comments on the LGBTQA+ community, resulting in a huge backlash, which seems to affect more than just her reputation.


All of these factors have led to the cancellation of the franchise that was supposed to last for 5 movies. Now, we will be lucky if we get to see the fourth installment in the franchise. But there is a degree of melancholy in the air. Fans are quite disappointed and they think that Fantastic Beasts 4 should not be canceled because cancellation would mean that we would never get to see the fateful duel between Grindlewald and Dumbledore. All throughout the franchise, there have been implications of this duel. Time and time again the movie has teased a fight between these exceptional magic users.


Fantastic Beasts 4 Should Not Be Canceled

Up until now Dumbledore and Grindlewald were barred from fighting each other because of the blood pact they had made as children. However, The Secrets of Dumbledore saw the destruction of this blood pact, resulting in a very short-lived battle between Grindlewald and Dumbledore. We expected to see the final duel in the next two movies but the news of cancellation has left us and many fans heartbroken. The movie should not be canceled simply because the fight between the pair would be too awesome as compared to everything else.


The Future

We know that the controversies surrounding the cast seem too overwhelming to the studio and the financial decline of the movie has resulted in both iterations barely meeting their basic budget. It may not make much financial or business sense but sometimes things should not make financial/ commercial sense. Fantastic Beasts 4 should not be canceled simply because the fight between the leading pair would be a sight to uphold.


Also since Fantastic Beasts 3 tied up all the storylines in the franchise with a pretty bow, the new movie is sure to bring with it, new conflicts and things to explore. We cannot wait for news of the new movie. I hope to see Grindlewald return even more powerful from beyond the realm of man.
