Ezra Miller joined in, announcing he’d want to destroy the patriarchy, which was also met with a roar.

But the movie has sparked controversy over the continued casting of Johnny Depp despite domestic violence allegations from his ex-wife Amber Heard, and because Dumbledore won’t be “explicitly” gay. (“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling revealed after finishing the series that the character is gay.)
Some have also noted apparent inconsistencies with the rest of the “Harry Potter” series, such as showing Dumbledore in the Defense Against the Dark Arts class (when we know he taught Transfiguration) and having wizards apparate into Hogwarts.

However, there wasn’t much trace of these bad vibes at the panel. The crowd ate everything up, going wild as their wristbands lit up in unison when Eddie Redmayne cast a “spell.” There was even applause when Depp came out on stage.
Plus, the new trailer has a crazy “Harry Potter” reveal at the end, which is straight up riddikulus.
