No-Maj Jacob Kowalski is set to be half the person in the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts 3 (2021). While the movie already had a lot on its plate to explain from the past installments, actor Dan Fogler’s weight loss comes as another challenge to fit into the story.
The actor, however, thought of a natural way to fit his weight change into the plot. Whether or not it makes sense, the fans be the judge.
Dan Fogler speaks about his weight loss

Dan Fogler talked about his weight loss where he shed some light on the way his weight reduction may assist the story in Fantastic Beasts 3. Here’s what Fogler had to say:
I hope that he gets Queenie back. … I haven’t seen a script yet, and I’ve lost a significant amount of weight, and I think it will be funny if — you know how she put a spell on me to follow her around like a puppy? What if she also put a spell on me to get fit? So there’s that. But also, on a philosophical level, it’ll be interesting… We’re in the middle of the Depression, he’s just on a bender of loss. He lost her … I’m just saying this is the thing that I have in my head, that he’s lost his appetite.
The power of cinematic magic is they could cover the entire thing in several numbers of ways. However, the big question is whether J.K. Rowling is aware of this explanation. It remains unlikely she was clued about the fact that Dan lost so much weight and that she’d have to find a way to explain it in the story.
For Dan's Luke character in The Walking Dead, weight loss definitely makes sense in the world of a zombie apocalypse. Even then, to what extent is certainly subjective. The same can't the said for the Harry Potter prequel. Fans might need to carry a suspension of disbelief to make sense of it. On the other hand, one could argue it sort of makes sense that depression can lead to a loss of appetite.

The second installment in the Harry Potter spin-off series, Crimes of Grindelwald, ended with a shock when it was revealed Credence, played by Ezra Miller, was a part of the Dumbledore family. Fans now eagerly await the next movie, some of the details of which are revealed by Jacob Kowalski actor Dan Fogler.
We haven’t started filming yet. We start in February. Last we heard, J.K. has been writing furiously, everyone was really happy with what she submitted, and we’re all just waiting for the new script. And that’s where we’re at.
The third movie that remains unnamed as of yet was initially subject to a release in November 2020. However, the release date was later pushed back to November 2021. The reason is believed to be the previous film Crimes of Grindelwald that failed to live up to the expectations.

Fogler revealed extra efforts are in place to ensure the next movie is a huge success. Talking about the production delay, the actor claimed the upcoming movie is bigger than the other two combined. They wanted to ensure everything was perfect, which required more preparation time. This pushed the date back even further.
Apparently, they are shooting the film in Brazil, the actor revealed. He then concluded by saying he’ll know more when he gets the script, closer to filming.
