Fantastic Beasts 3 officially cast Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen as Johnny Depp’s replacement for the role of Gellert Grindelwald. Fantastic Beasts 3: regularly casts Mads Mikkelsen as Johnny Depp’s replacement for the character of Gellert Grindelwald. In 2016, Warner Bros. animated J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World on the big screen with Fantastic Beasts. And Where to Find Them, a prequel film based on a Hogwarts textbook. Though the set initially looked like it would focus on the events of magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). As it soon became manifest, it would cover the time when dark wizard Grindelwald threatened the wizarding world.
Depp emerged at the tail end of the first Fantastic Beasts as Grindelwald. And before it goes on to have a more significant role in 2018’s The Crimes of Grindelwald. He poised to play this role for absolute privilege. But following Depp’s loss of a slander case against a newspaper called him a “wife-beater.” Warner Bros. asked the actor to move down. Recasting works quickly got undertaken. And early rumors suggested Mikkelsen was the frontrunner. Mikkelsen later denied those claims, but now it’s clear he was only throwing fans off the scent.
What’s the plot for behind Fantastic Beasts 3?
All told, Depp’s Fantastic Beasts opening and his replacement’s casting only took a handful of weeks. This meaning production might not have set back much (if at all). Notwithstanding, Fantastic Beasts 3 has already been delayed from 2021 to 2022. This meaning fans will have to wait for even more longer to recognize Mikkelsen as Grindelwald. Plot details for Fantastic Beasts 3 are still happening kept under wraps. And but it’s confident there will be a point jump between it and The Crimes of Grindelwald. Also, and that it will pay some time in Rio de Janeiro. The Crimes of Grindelwald dinged for its untidy script and nonsensical twists. But only the future will tell if Fantastic Beasts 3 can take some steps to make up for earlier mistakes.
