    Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is coming to the defense of Johnny Depp.
    Following news that Depp would be reappearing as Gellert Grindelwald in the next Fantastic Beasts movie, fans expressed outrage since Depp's marriage to actress Amber Heard ended in divorce last year amid allegations of domestic abuse.
    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, due out in November 2018, is the sequel to 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which was based on Rowling's 2001 spinoff of her popular Harry Potter series.
