Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald isn’t out for another month, but Johnny Depp has seemingly confirmed he’s on board for the third film. Depp said the following when speaking to Collider about his experience shooting the second film and the franchise’s future:
The possibilities in that world are wide open, so you can really try anything. So it was a gas and I look forward to the next installment, which I think we start the middle of next year.
That seems like a silly thing to say if he’s not involved, although Grindelwald’s survival to the next film shouldn’t come as a big surprise to Harry Potter fans. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald is out in theaters November 17th.
