Fantastic Beasts 2: Johnny Depp confirmed as Grindelwald

Last day before David Yates confirmed that the fan most loved Grindelwald would show up in Fantastic Beasts 2 but role has not been cast.

This month we reported that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series added Johnny Depp to the cast , we said that Depp may put in Grindelwald appearance and now its comes true.

Talking with The Leaky Cauldron, chief David Yates confirmed that Depp would assume the part of the Grindelwald

The whole principal of casting the movie was go with the best actor. Go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. And as we approached Grindelwald we thought, ‘who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent.

Johnny Depp is a real artist. He’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor. We were excited about seeing what he would do with this guy, the character. He’s fearless; he’s imaginative; he’s ambitious. We thought he would do something fun and special. So we went for him, purely on that selfish basis. We don’t care if he’s famous or not famous. We just know he’s interesting.

Yates additionally uncovered that the follow-up to “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” would have returned to Europe after the America-set first film.

We do go back to the U.K. in the second film as well–it’s U.K. and Paris. I’m not sure where Jo is setting the rest of the movies, but they’ll be European-centric. I think it will be difficult to ignore America, but the next one is predominately Europe.
