Has J.K. Rowling hinted Fantastic Beasts 3 will feature the Chinese School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?


There’s still a lot that we don’t know about the world of Harry Potter. It looks like the Chinese school may be coming up soon, possibly in Fantastic Beasts 3.

We know that J.K. Rowling is writing Fantastic Beasts 3 right now. We also know that there are 11 schools for witches and wizards around the world. Seven of those schools have been named, and none of those are in China. So, why does it seem like the third prequel movie is going to be set in the Chinese School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? How do we even know there is one there?

Rowling has spent a lot of time promoting Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald in China. She also shared that the second movie will feature a Chinese beast known as the Zouwu. This could certainly give our main character a reason to travel to the Chinese school, by having to get more information or because the animal has dropped a clue for the next steps Newt needs to take.

If Rowling was ever planning to go to the Chinese school, why hasn’t she named it yet? Well, that would give away something about the school, wouldn’t it? Even just a name can give away a lot.

It’s possible that leaving the name of the school out is strategic. It keeps the questions about the school going, continuing the mystery of both the school and the country. The names Rowling has given us may be just the names of some of the schools she has no intention of ever taking us to in the movies. After all, there are still four schools without names and three more movies. Could these be the schools that we get to head to in the next Fantastic Beasts movies?

For now, we’ll just have to sit back and enjoy the wait. Fantastic Beasts news tends to be heavily guarded, except for tidbits that Rowling wants us to know. We’ll just have to keep theorizing that the Chinese school is coming soon.
