in Entertainment, Harry Potter, Movies, Movies & TV

With the theatrical release of J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them right around the corner (Nov. 18), talk is already underway about casting for the inevitable sequel to the film.

Fortunately for all of us, it looks like the studio has taken a liking to none other than super character actor, Johnny Depp! The Fantastic Beasts sequel is set for a Nov. 16, 2018 release, and shooting will begin next year.

So what do you think of Depp himself making his way to the wizarding world? What kind of character do you think you’ll play? Let me know what you think in the comments below, and stick with Inside the Magic for all things fun and awesome!


  1. Jason

    Young Dumbledore?

    1. Jessica

      omg… yes.

    2. Adam McCabe


      …I’ll see myself out.

  2. Sean

    I expected better from this franchise than to hire a freaking sexist wife beater!

    1. CASS

      Judge much? SHE was the one actually arrested for DV, not him.

  3. Jen

    I think it’s awesome, Johnny Depp is a great actor. I’d say ‘sexist’ and ‘wife beater’ are pretty harsh things to call him. After all, Amber was abusive, as well.

    Y’know, right now I’m starting to feel like Cassandra every time I say “Nobody CARES about Harry Potter Without Harry!”
    (Unlike Cursed Child, obviously.)

    Of course, it’s been a rough summer, so most of us may not care -what- November movies we end up seeing.

  5. Considering how quirky the Wizarding World is, lol, there are a plethora of parts Johnny could play.

    Direct to Video Depp.

    The events are happening before Harry Potter therefore it’s a PREQUEL, not a sequel (The Cursed Child can be considered as a sequel because it happens after Harry Potter).

  9. Manahil

    Hope he plays Grindelwald.
