Shocker! Johnny Depp is in 'Fantastic Beasts'

Talk about a November surprise: Johnny Depp has entered the J.K. Rowling universe. Kaboom.

Depp makes a brief appearance in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (in theaters Nov. 18) and will appear in the second film in the Beasts franchise, Warner Bros. spokesman Paul McGuire confirms to USA TODAY.

The cameo fits into the world of Eddie Redmayne's wizard Newt Scamander, who is introduced in the first film.

Warner Bros. had managed to keep Depp's appearance a secret until Tuesday. Word leaked out after journalists started seeing early screenings of the film.

Director David Yates will return as director for the second Beasts film, slated for release Nov. 16, 2018.

Rowling announced at a fan event last month that she will write five Beasts films for Warner Bros.
