Johnny Depp To Star In ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel – And You Won’t Believe Who He’s Apparently Playing
He has a ‘cameo’ in the new movie, and a major role in the sequel.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them opens in a matter of days, and to send excitement levels off the charts, news has broken of a very special cameo appearance… according to reports, Johnny Depp will pop up in the new film before taking a major role in the sequel, and potentially the sequels beyond that!
All of which is well and good, but prepare to lose your mind entirely when we tell you that the role Depp is rumoured to be playing is none other than a young Albus Dumbledore! Obviously, nothing has been confirmed as yet, but as rumours go, this one’s a bit of a gem…
It could of course just be the work of internet rumour-mongers (in which case, “mischief made”), but Depp’s involvement is a definite, and it certainly seems as though his character will be a significant one going forward. If not Dumbledore, perhaps he could be playing the notorious dark wizard, Grindlewald? Time will tell.
Not that we’ll have to wait too long to find out, as Fantastic Beasts is set to make its bow in UK cinemas on 18 November 2016. Best get that Nimbus 2000 out of the broom cupboard…
