The choice of Johnny Depp for the role of Gellert Grindelwald in the sequel of Fantastic Animals has been disputed by fans because of the accusations of domestic violence that the actor has received from his ex-wife Amber Heard.

On her official website, J. K. Rowling, author of the novels the original, has issued the following statement:

“When Johnny Depp was chosen for the role of Grindelwald, I thought this would be great for the role. While filming his cameo in the first film, there were stories in the press that have worried me and all those involved in the franchise.”

“Harry Potter fans have questions and legitimate concerns about our choice to go with Johnny Depp. As has already been said David Yates, director of Harry Potter for a long time, we have taken into account the possibility of changing the actor. I understand that some of you are confused and angry because we haven't done that.”

“The huge community grew up around Harry Potter is one of the greatest joys of my life. Not being able to talk openly with fans about this issue has been difficult, frustrating, painful at times. But the arrangements made to protect the privacy of two people, both of whom have expressed the desire to move forward with their lives, must be respected. Given our understanding of the circumstances, the production, and I are not only comfortable with continuing with the original cast, but we're really happy to have Johnny in the role of an important character.”

The sequel will be directed by David Yates, former director of the first episode, and will see in the cast, Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Katherine waterstone's, Alison Sudol, Zoe Kravitz, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogle and Callum Turner.
