Petition to Recast Johnny Depp's Role in Fantastic Beasts

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Now, more than ever, is the time to advocate for victims of abuse, and to stop supporting their abusers. While Grindelwald is a fairly cruel and twisted character, that doesn't mean that the actor portraying him needs to be. Leaving Johnny Depp cast in this film will only empower an abusive and barbaric man. Fantastic Beasts is supposed to be an extension of the magical world of Harry Potter that we all grew to know and love. This casting stained the wonder that filled so much of our childhood and brought that wonder back to our lives once again. A year is plenty of time to recast his role with Colin Farrel; who gave a standout performance in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Even if he is unavailable, there are plenty of other viable options that are not physically abusive. An alternate option would be happily accepted over Johnny Depp by the vast, loving, and magical Harry Potter community.
