Johnny Depp Is Joining the Harry Potter Universe With a Role in Fantastic Beasts and Folks Are NOT Happy
Johnny Depp has played some of Hollywood’s most iconic roles over the years, but during his divorce from Amber Heard (who donated her entire $7 million settlement to charity), some pretty awful accusations of domestic abuse came out. Fans were more than a little disappointed — in fact, they were downright done with the dude. Now, it’s been announced that Depp will be joining the beloved Harry Potter universe with a role in the Fantastic Beasts franchise and, honestly, fans are NOT happy about it.
Depp’s role in the movies is being tightly guarded (though rumors are saying he’ll play Grindewald), but we do know that he’ll make a cameo in the first film. Since that one hits theaters on November 18, we won’t have to wait long for the big reveal.
With his casting coming along with the confirmation that Johnny will also be appearing in the sequel, this appears to be his attempt to get back on the good side of the public, with a hope they’ll forget the abuse charges while being charmed by the magic of the wizarding world.
It also means that fans who aren’t pleased by this hiring will have to put up with more Depp than they want.
I am fucking digusted that Johnny Depp has been cast as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beast films @jk_rowling – he's a woman beater!

I think the Fantastic beast franchise wants to be as authentic as possible by casting Johnny Depp.
Grindelwald was very much disliked.

While some totally ignore Depp these days…

There are those that are completely torn…
I don't know what to do about Depp being in @FantasticBeasts. I don't wanna support anything he does, but Harry Potter is my favorite thing!

And those who want to take action…
Petition to keep Johnny Depp away from anything that has to do with Harry Potter.
— Savannah (@savannahshea_) November 2, 2016
Or want JK Rowling to step up…
Basically, the overall feeling is just no…
Man, that Depp casting is so disappointing. JKR usually gets so much right. They don't even serve junk food at Universal HP World. Why this?

Upset that Johnny Depp has been cast in Fantastic Beasts 2… just why… poor choice.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
