Fantastic Beasts 2: Rowling Understands if Fans Boycott Over Depp's Role

Some fans were upset by the casting of Depp, who dealt with allegations of physical assault against ex-wife Amber Heard earlier this year.

A very public back-and-forth ensued between Depp and Heard, and in the end a settlement was reached and Heard donated all of her proceeds to the American Civil Liberties Union and the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Rowling began by stating that while at first she was happy with Depp's casting, she became "concerned" when she heard the allegations against him.

Rowling, however, said that based on her understanding of the situation, she was not only comfortable with Depp, but "genuinely happy" to have him in the upcoming film.

Harry Potter fans had legitimate questions and concerns about our choice to continue with Johnny Depp in the role.

"Honestly, there's an issue at the moment where there's a lot of people being accused of things, they're being accused by multiple victims, and it's compelling and frightening", director David Yates previously told EW.

This isn't the first time Yates has come to Depp's defense though, saying that the person described in the accusation isn't the person he knows. "Neither party has lied nor made false accusations for financial gain". For me personally, the inability to speak openly to fans about this issue has been hard, frustrating and at times painful. "As David Yates, long-time Potter director, has already said, we naturally considered the possibility of recasting".

Rowling went on to admit that "the inability to speak openly to fans about this issue has been hard, frustrating and at times painful" for her, but "the agreements that have been put in place to protect the privacy of two people, both of whom have expressed a desire to get on with their lives, must be respected".

"The huge, mutually supportive community that has grown up around Harry Potter is one of the greatest joys of my life", Rowling wrote.

Rowling concludes: "I've loved writing the first two screenplays and I can't wait for fans to see "The Crimes of Grindelwald".

While Rowling acknowledged that some fans would remain unsatisfied by Depp's ongoing role, "conscience isn't governable by committee".

The Beasts sequel, which will feature Depp in a more prominent role, is slated for release on November 16, 2018.

'So if I understand correctly the actor who played Crabbe, a minor character, was sacked from Harry Potter for doing drugs.

"None of us involved in Fantastic Beasts would ever let our appreciation of talent obscure other, far more important considerations".
