Um… does Tim Burton know about this!?

Johnny Depp has played plenty of whimsical characters over the years, but now he's gearing up for his most magical role yet!

The actor has been cast in the sequel to the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!

According to reports, the 53-year-old's role is being kept under the invisibility cloak for now — though fans will catch a glimpse of Depp's character in Fantastic Beasts, in which he is reported to make a brief cameo.

There seems to be quite a mixed reaction to the star's addition from fans of J.K. Rowling's wizarding world — not just because of he's had a pretty scandal-ridden year so far.

Last month, Rowling — who also wrote the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts — announced there would be five total movies in the spin-off series, so we're guessing Johnny will be sticking around a while.

Things are getting pretty wild in New York, thanks to Eddie Redmayne!

On Wednesday, Warner Bros. released the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and it doesn't disappoint!

In the new clip for the Harry Potter spinoff, Eddie's character, Newt Scamander, lets a bunch of magical creatures loose in the bustling metropolis, confusing the sh*t out of all the Muggles (or "No-Majs", as they're called in America)!

Anyway, it looks like the film will be about so much more than just fantastic beasts running amok in NYC.

It actually seems as though the wizards and the No-Majs are headed for full-on war, and Colin Farrell's character is TOTALLY ready to throw down!

Pass the patronus!

While the original Harry Potter book series ended way back in 2007 with the book release of The Deathly Hallows, you'd never be able to tell based on how active the fandom is to this day.
