However, it has been confirmed that Johnny Depp will indeed be coming back for Fantastic Beasts 3. Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com reports that Grindelwald will indeed be coming back for Fantastic Beasts 3 with Johnny Depp helming the character.
Recently the Pirates of the Caribbean actor discussed how much he loved working in the first two Fantastic Beasts movies and expressed his excitement for the third installment.
Johnny Depp expressed his excitement for the third movie during an interview with Collider since the film is said to begin summer 2019.
Depp has this to say about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and the franchise.
I loved it because that’s really an arena where you can fly around and try different things and approach a character with a lot more…um…to take someone who is teetering on being a fascist, yeah he’s a fascist, he’s one of those, but to play him as a sensitive, concerned yet manipulative and powerful wizard. The possibilities in that world are wide open, so you can really try anything. So it was a gas and I look forward to the next installment, which I think we start the middle of next year.
It was amazing. It came out of nowhere. Someone said J.K. Rowling would like to talk to me. I spoke to a few producers and the director and to J.K. and had long conversations basically about the Grindelwald character. J.K. said something I did not expect to hear because obviously, her detail to her characters and those wizarding worlds is astonishing. The fact that she said, “I can’t wait to see what you do with the character.” Just to hand it off to me with that degree of trust, I was really touched, blown away by that. So I jumped into locating the character and I had my ideas. I came in and it all seemed to work out. Grindelwald is an interesting character. His intentions in his mind are for the greater good, but there have been other people in world politics and such who felt the same way. He’s very dedicated to his beliefs. He’s not a fun character; he’s not funny.
That is cool Depp is returning for all three movies.
