J. K. Rowling has posted onto her website her opinion on re-casting Johnny Depp in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
I’ve loved writing the first two screenplays and I can’t wait for fans to see ‘The Crimes of Grindelwald’. I accept that there will be those who are not satisfied with our choice of actor in the title role. However, conscience isn’t governable by committee. Within the fictional world and outside it, we all have to do what we believe to be the right thing.
