Eddie Redmayne has confirmed that filming has resumed on ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’, as the cast and crew are being tested for the Covid-19 virus ‘frequently’ to ensure everyone’s safety on set.

The third installment was originally meant to be released in the fall of 2020 but was pushed back to November 12th, 2021, to provide time for script polishing.

The movie then started filming in March of 2020 but production was almost immediately shut down due to the global Covid-19 pandemic.

Eddie Redmayne revealed on Sunday that production has started once again, though he also admitted that he thought filming with masks on would negatively impact their work, but the cast and crew have proven that they are ‘at the top of their game’.

He explained to CinemaBlend.com: “It’s interesting because we’ve started shooting now. We’re two weeks in, and again, it’s a whole new process. It’s a whole new normal.”

“Testing frequently, masks. And I wondered, actually, whether the masks would affect creativity, in some ways.” – The actor added.

He went on to say: “What is really reassuring is that it is a different process, but it still feels like it’s fizzing and that everyone is working at the top of their game.”

The plot for ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ is expected to focus on the complex relationship between Grindelwald, who is played by actor Johnny Depp, and Dumbledore, who is played by actor Jude Law.
