Fantastic Beasts 3: Dan Fogler Teases A “Wild Ride”, Compares Film To The Prisoner Of Azkaban

Dan Fogler, the actor who portrays Jacob Kowalski in the ongoing Fantastic Beasts film franchise, recently spoke to Comic News Insider and discussed what we can expect from the next Wizarding World movie.

The actor gives some insight into Jacob’s role in the third Fantastic Beasts movie, saying that the character has “lost a lot” since we last saw him.

“Last time we saw him he was on the bridge to Hogwarts at the end of Crimes of Grindelwald and he’s looking out on the horizon for her. Like he feels, like the door is wide open man. He has already forgiven her. He just loves her and you can imagine the time between the last movie and this movie, that’s a lot of waiting. He’s… Yeah. I think when you see him next he’s a guy who’s lost a lot. And it’s a reflection of the time period. We’re getting into the Great Depression. So, yeah, he’s in a funk when you first meet him.”


Fogler then went on to talk about the still untitled Fantastic Beasts film, which is currently set to land in cinemas next year, and went as far as to compare the movie to Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban – which is largely considered to be the best Harry Potter film.

“We’re so excited for this next movie. It’s a real adventure like… My favourite was Azkaban from the Potter movies because you have a sense of the characters and then you can really throw them into a wild ride, you can really throw them into a crazy adventure. I loved Azkaban and all the time travel stuff, the werewolf stuff. And so, in the same regard, we get to have a lot of fun and my goodness we added some great characters and Jess, Jessica Williams, we had some really excellent chemistry.”
