I just wanted to make this really brief video and discuss the situation with Fantastic Beasts 3 and the replacement of Johnny Depp. Obviously-unless you live under a rock, you have probably seen the headlines surrounding Depp and his resignation from the film franchise. Given that Depp plays Gellert Grindelwald- the primary antagonist- this obviously leaves a huge hole in the franchise. However, since his vacancy, there have been a lot of names thrown up in the air regarding his replacement. Although, one name appears to have shown up more than any other- and that name is Mads Mikkelsen. Where rumours were previously circulating surrounding his acceptance of the role- Mads released a statement recently explaining that these were just rumours- and that he hadn’t been approached by Warner Bros just yet. He didn’t explicitly express interest in the role, but he did say that he was waiting for a call from them. However, just today- Warner Bros released a statement explaining that Mads has officially been cast as the dark wizard Grindelwald.
Mads has been in a plethora of films including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Hannibal, Casino Royale, and many others, and I think that he’ll be a valuable asset to the Fantastic Beasts franchise. The third film is currently under production at Leavesden studios just outside of london- and the film is expected to be released in the summer of 2022. The filmmakers have had a hard time sticking with release deadlines so far so hopefully this doesn’t get extended any longer. All of the other actors are still on board- Jude Law (Dumbledore), Eddie Redmayne (Newt), Dan Fogler (Jacob) etc- so I’m excited for a good film.
That’s it for this BRIEF update video- I hope you all have a good day.
Until next time- remember,
There is plenty to be learned even from a bad teacher: what not to do, how not to be
