Could dragons appear in Fantastic Beasts 3?

Jim Kay has an illustration in the Sorcerer’s Stone Illustrated Edition of various different types of dragons eggs. Could we see a few new types of dragons in the remaining Fantastic Beasts movies?

We have only been shown three different types of dragons in the Potter movies, with Harry battling a Hungarian Horntail in Goblet of Fire, and the Golden Trio taking flight on the back of a newly freed Ukrainian Ironbelly, as well as Norbert, the Norwegian Ridgeback.

This leaves several other types of dragons left to make their big screen debut, including the other three dragons mentioned in the first Triwizard task, which were the Chinese Fireball, the Welsh Green Dragon, and the Swedish Short-snout. These three were more than likely left out of the movie because of how expensive they would have been to render.

Which brings us to the potential inclusion of a dragon in a Fantastic Beasts movie. With three movies supposedly left, it almost seems certain that we will see a dragon in one of them. Since it will be expensive to do the CGI for this particular beast, it stands to reason that we will only see one.

With the third Beasts movie reportedly taking place partially in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, it would make sense that the dragon most likely to show up would be the Peruvian Vipertooth. Peru is a neighboring country to Brazil, and we could easily see a Vipertooth terrorizing the city of Rio.

The dragon scenes in the Potter film series were some of the most exciting, and another dragon making an appearance in any one of the Fantastic Beasts movies would be a welcome addition to a franchise in turmoil.
