    I see. I wouldn't put much weight on the video game stuff. Is just PR for the most part.

    Q: What is J.K. Rowling’s involvement with the game? Is this a new story from J.K. Rowling?
    A: J.K. Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game, however, her extraordinary body of writing is the foundation of all projects in the Wizarding World.
    This is not a new story from J.K. Rowling.

    Notice how they said not directly involved meaning somewhat involved. The game is just using the world she created and pottermore stuff and I'm sure they cleared stuff with her if they had a question most likely. Also, noticed how they had to emphasize that this is not new story from her. They can't created new stuff without her.

    I think Rowling has had a pretty direct creative control over at least the first two Fantastic Beasts movie. The whole problem with the 2nd movie was that it felt like an index checking about HP lore where nothing happened until the end, it's probably the most Rowling-centric movie we've gotten.

    I'm actually really glad they're bringing back Steve Kloves for the next FB movie, he took a lot of very long, very divergent books and made them incredibly zippy. While novels can have room for sidestories and the whole problem with Grindelwald movie is that it thinks that sidestores and minutiae are propulsive narrative. Instead it's just kind of a drag.

    It's spin control for trying to offset her anti-trans crusade bringing bad publicity. That's it.

    WB should really go after Ezra miller for hitting a women and Amber Heard abusing someone. Go all out.

    Who do you think they'll cast to replace him? I know when they went from Richard Harris to Michael Gambon there was a lot of uproar, but I think Michael Gambon did a great job.

    I think someone who resembles both Colin and Depp.

    Are they going to fire Amber too. Be consistent at least. Ezra too.
    Anyways, it doesn't make sense to get Colin Farrell back because what would be the in story logic.
    I would love Farrell back as Graves but it wouldn't make sense for Grindelwald to disguise himself again as person he was exposed being already. Grindelwald would have to be disguising himself as someone so new character is required.
    They should get James McAvoy.

    Amber is in the Stand remake coming out soon. I am a big fan of the book. She plays a treacherous vixen.

    "Boy, Grindelwald and Dumbledore's brother really went on a polyjuice potion bender there for a few months, huh? Really messed them up!"

    I have hope for the third one, the one who directed the third Harry potter movie will help with the script.

    Alfonso did some good work, it'll be interesting to have him back. Though my favorite director was Columbus.

    Also, Depp doesn’t deserve this.


    I read the whole story and I gave both sides a fair chance with an open mind. I believed everything bad about Depp until more came out. Amber Heard deserves as much repercussion if not more.

    I understand why Disney didn't want him in the new pirates movies as at that time it looked bad for Depp as all pointed to him, but now we know more and and Amber admitted as mutch on tape, but when he lost his civil case now it looks bad as the judge went against him. I hope he continnues to fight for his life and career and bring down Amber down. He fell for a pretty face and that's been ruining him for years now.

    The clouds have been on the horizon regarding this for a while. I would bet that as soon as Depp vs Heard began years ago, higher-ups at WB contemplated a Plan B in case things escalated.

    Damn I want that now, Mads can do no wrong. Inner continuity nerd would appreciate some cover though, maybe Depp Grindelwald was even another layer of magic. I know they didn't with Dumbledore but he's a good honest man, Gindelwald is a baddie, give him more layers of deception.

    I was thinking this too. I don't want Grindelwald to be in another disguise to explain the recast. I hope the solution was that Depp's Grindelwald (the face the wizard world knows him as) is another disguise and that this is the true reveal so to speak.
