Yet another 'Fantastic Beasts' sequel is hitting the screens, but a lot of things have changed since the premiere of 'Crimes of Grindelwald'. We have a new actor portraying Gellert Grindelwald himself, and it looks like in the end it was one of the best casting decisions Warner Bros execs ever made.

'Secrets of Dumbledore' have already prompted various reviews, with some film critics absolutely loving the movie and others arguing that there is only one valid reason to watch the film.

And this reason is Mads Mikkelsen, who slid into the universe of 'Fantastic Beasts' following the scandal around Johnny Depp. According to some critics, even though the fans felt sorry for Depp, Mikkelsen fits better for the role.

The Telegraph's Robbie Cullen believes that Mikkelsen "should have been cast from the start" instead of Depp, while Time Out's Caroline McGinn argues that "Mikkelsen makes a fantastically sinister replacement for Johnny Depp."

"Mikkelsen's simmering intensity adds a new layer of menace to the character but also suggests a credibly torrid romantic history with Dumbledore," reads Kevin Maher's review published by The Times.

And a pretty large crowd of Wizarding World fans seem to agree, welcoming Mikkelsen to the Hogwarts universe gladly and wholeheartedly.

'Secrets of Dumbledore' premiered on April 6, drawing Harry Potter fans to the cinemas to dive back into the prequel story of Newt Scamander, Tina & Queenie Goldstein, Gellert Grindelwald – and, of course, the most secretive person himself, young professor Albus Dumbledore.
