Johnny Depp legit just ruins everything now.
I remember going into the first Fantastic Beasts and being pleasantly surprised. Going back to the world of magic and muggles and all things in-between was incredible. Then towards the end of the movie Colin Farrell’s character morphed into Johnny Depp and well, my jaw hit the floor. Not because I was shocked, not because I was happy, because it flat out ruined the movie. Yeah 90’s Depp was awesome, but now, he’s just Johnny Depp. He’s no longer an actor. Okay, it didn’t ruin the movie completely but I can’t believe they did Colin dirty like that, he was fine in this role and I think he was better suited for the role.
So now we have the upcoming sequel which predominantly features Depp and all I see is Johnny. It’s hard to see him as anything else these days, and I don’t know how I can possibly sit through this movie. It appears to be darker in tone and have way more magic, both great things. Jude Law is playing a younger Dumbledore which seems all too perfect. I can’t wait to go back to this world again, it’s just a shame we have to put up with Johnny Depp in the mean time.
The trailer is pretty fantastic, no pun intended. These new characters especially Newt are a nice additional to an already packed universe. It makes me want venture back to this world again and again. Check it out and see for yourself!
