Fantastic Beasts: Eddie Redmayne Describes Filming Under COVID-19 Restrictions

After what seems like an eternity, the third instalment of the Fantastic Beasts series has begun filming, with stars like Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law returning to shoot the film.

Like many films, including Mission: Impossible 7 and The Batman, the third Fantastic Beasts movie was forced to shut-down production due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Now, however, Eddie Redmayne, who portrays Newt Scamander in the Fantastic Beasts films, has confirmed that filming has resumed in London under the new Covid-19 restrictions.


Speaking to CinemaBlend about his new movie, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Eddie Redmayne confirmed that Fantastic Beasts 3 has resumed filming and discussed what it’s like to shoot a major Hollywood blockbuster while sticking to the various Covin-19 safety measures.

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. Maybe that was a bit ignorant, but I just thought, as humans, do we need interaction to spark from each other. 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.


While Redmayne didn’t reveal a great deal about the next instalment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, it’s exciting to know that filming has resumed and Warner Bros. is doing its best to ensure the safety of everyone on set. Now that Fantastic Beasts 3 is officially in production, we can look forward to more announcements and reveals in the coming weeks and months.
