Fantastic Beasts 3 Early Reactions Are Here: "Improvement on the Sequel," "Best So Far"

We're now getting closer to the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, the highly-anticipated latest installment in the Fantastic Beasts series. Based on the trailers that they released, it looks like the next chapter in Newt Scamander's journey in the Wizarding World will be epic as it will feature a big war against Grindelwald's army. Just like any other film that gets released, fans are wondering if Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is a good film or an improvement over the other films or if it will be a disappointment.

Now that the highly-anticipated third installment had its premiere yesterday in London, the early reactions from the critics and journalists who have seen the film have also started to arrive. Based on the responses so far, it looks like The Secrets of Dumbledore actually delivered with some even calling it an "improvement on the sequel" and the "best so far" in the series.

Here are some of the early reaction tweets:

The consensus seems to be that the upcoming film is a big improvement from The Crimes of Grindelwald, which received mixed responses from the critics and the audience. Some even called it the best film in the franchise so far. There's also a lot of shoutout to Mads Mikkelsen and Jessica Williams, who seem to be the MVPs of the film.

While the early reactions to the film have been mostly positive, we do have to keep in mind that it doesn't necessarily reflect the reactions once the actual reviews are out since there are only a few characters that they can use to do their early reaction tweet and, most of the time, they always lean towards the positive side.

Given the underwhelming reception of the second film and the controversial recasting of Johnny Depp earlier in the production, there's a lot of stake in The Secrets of Dumbledore in terms of how it should be received in order for the studio to be confident enough to continue the franchise. Let's just wait and see how the audience will respond to the film and how it will do well at the box office.
