Fantastic beasts 3 a fantasy movie series that’s the prequel to the Harry Potter series introduces Rowling as a screenwriter and was filmed in March 2020 but was stopped immediately due to the outbreak of the corona outbreak. Fantastic beasts haven’t been very successful, to begin with box office drops, poor review, and negative impressions from fans and general public.
Multiple controversies surround the movie as the one concerning Rowling arguable transphobic tweet and, if Warner Bros would stick on with Johnny Depp as Grindelwald and the release date of the movie k Rowling instigated criticism with her tweet on trans people. Rowling wrote “People who menstruate I am sure there used to be a word for those people…someone help me out…Women?
Wimpund? Woomed…Rowling’s comments don’t match what she has preached through the wizarding world. Her silence is so evident in her response to the controversy that no wonder she is termed as a bad listener to the people who try to call to her. Rowling has been called TERF by many the acronym of trans exclusionary radical feminists and they called it hate speech whereas she states that it doesn’t hate to speak the truth.
With her tweet, she gained a lot of criticism from her own otherwise great fans and especially the LGBTQ community. With so much noise about her inability to understand the difference between gender and sex she tweets “Never assume that because someone thinks differently, they have no knowledge “.
She claims she is not an outsider but has been acknowledged by a few of her friends from the gay and lesbian community and used their comments as a shield to defend her claims. Fantastic beasts lead Eddie Redmayne to share a support to the trans-community by expressing his disagreement on Rowling’s comments with such disagreement will he be continuing to work with the author is yet another unanswered question.
Warner Bro’s are maintaining a mute mode though they are aware of these noises around the project. Though Johnny Depp has a contract for the five-film franchise with Warner Bro yet each movie is handled separately by Warner bros along with the Rowling’s blast Johnny Depp’s back and forth allegation with his ex-wife Amber Heard has kindled a lot of doubts has whether he would continue as Grendel Wald though he has a huge support from his fans.
The whole world waits for the pandemic to die as it would put an end to a lot of unanswered questions such as when will fantastic beasts 3 be released.
