It was last Thursday that we got our first glimpse of the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, a sequel to 2016’s Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. And just like the portraits in those movies, it was neither a still image nor trailer, but rather a moving photograph meant to look like it was part of that magical world. Because that’s what the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises are capable of: magic.

But one notable character is causing some fans to wish their wands actually worked because they’d use them to zap Johnny Depp out of the picture.

At the end of the original, we saw Depp as the real Gellert Grindelwald for the first time. But now that we live in a world where sexual assault and harassment allegations are the norm, many people don’t want Depp, who allegedly abused ex-wife Amber Heard during their marriage, to be involved with the franchise again.

No, really, when Colin Farrell morphed into Depp, it was underwhelming and predictable, at best. And that was for a short moment at the end of the Fantastic Beasts; an entire movie devoted to Depp, er, Grindelwald and his crimes? That’s a lot for disgruntled fans to take. Come on, it’s not like recasts haven’t been done before.
