** Creator/JohnnyDepp's casting as [[spoiler:Gellert Grindelwald]]. A significant chunk of the fandom expressed horror, citing the highly publicized allegations of domestic abuse during his divorce proceedings in 2016[[note]]it should be noted that ''Fantastic Beasts'' began shooting in 2015, before said allegations were made public[[/note]]. Some (including, apparently J.K. Rowling herself) were happy with the choice and applauded him for being a great actor, regardless of his personal life. More still just think that as an American, he's the wrong fit [[spoiler: for a continental European wizard]].

Some One admin on the Harry Potter Wiki even resigned over the inclusion on that wiki of a Johnny Depp article, but has since rejoined. On the other hand, some (including, apparently J.K. Rowling herself) were happy with the choice and applauded him for being a great actor, regardless of his personal life. More still just think that as an American, he's the wrong fit [[spoiler: for a continental European wizard]].

*** With the [[http://variety.com/2017/film/news/jude-law-dunbledore-fantastic-beasts-sequel-1202029157/ announcement]] that Creator/JudeLaw will play young Dumbledore, everyone who took over from Creator/HeathLedger in Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus is in this film series.



** This is the second time Samantha Morton and Colin Farrell [[Film/MinorityReport are in the same movie but don't have any real scenes together, Colin's character is an American federal agent]] and [[spoiler:not what he seems (Witwer seems corrupt due to his ambition but is actually a straight-arrow; Graves turns out to be a different person entirely) and ends up dead (as good as, anyway, in Graves' case) when the conspiracy is revealed]].

** Several long-time fans have taken issue with the lack of diversity in the casting choices of the main characters, especially since the film is not based on a book. Others have insisted that it isn't really that much of an issue because of the varied background characters in the trailer.

* ValuesResonance: Despite having harsh laws against No-Maj/wizard relations, MACUSA not only is led by a female president but she's also black (who's also not the first woman to hold the office-one served as far back as the 1700s), while at the time their No-Maj female counterparts only recently gained the right to vote at all, and in much of the US black people had theirs (among other rights) denied.

** The Nundu, which resembles a Leopard -- said to be utterly silent, gigantic, and able to wipe out entire villages just by ''breathing'' due to the diseases on its breath; it's so dangerous that the only successful kills have come from one ''hundred'' wizards working in concert. For comparison, that's ten times as many wizards as it takes to subdue the average ''dragon''.

** This is also isn't [[Film/PacificRim the first time]] that a character named Newt who likes Fantastic Beasts has gone to Creator/RonPerlman in a somewhat seedy underground location in order to get information.

** The Obliviate Curse is treated here as a pretty terrible thing, which many fans had thought since the original books, especially since it was shown to cause brain damage if done to much, or if badly cast. [[spoiler:Jacob's memory being erased at the end is one of the film's saddest scenes.]]

* {{Narm}}: The reveal that [[spoiler:Graves is Grindelwald]] is difficult to take seriously, owing to [[spoiler:the character's ridiculous appearance, especially his blonde moustache]]. [[spoiler:His confusing "Will we die, just a little?" line didn't help matters.]]
