Harry Potter fans will always be dedicated to their fandom.

There's no doubt about it. 

And by the looks of all the new Harry Potter spin-offs in the works, aka the five film instalments of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, they will never have to let go of their obsession.

Die-hard passion for everything in the wizarding world stated, you'd expect they would have a LOT to say when something doesn't go their way. 

This is exactly what has happened now that news has broken of the latest Hollywood A-Lister to join the cast of Fantastic Beasts in a major role... 

Deadline reported this week on Warner Bros confirming Johnny Depp's role as the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (who has a very close relationship to our favourite Dumbledore). 

Depp is to appear briefly in the first film, which debuts this month, and will have a more prominent role in the sequel. 

Harry Potter devotees have taken to social media to share their outrage at the casting news, believing that Depp's reputation over the last year will cast a dark shadow over the beloved series.

Only time will tell how this will all pan out, though we're sure many will be trying to use their Time-Turner memorabilia to change this news...
