I have seen that, but the problem is that half of them are white themselves, but I rather to hear complain from the Nagiani representation themselves than white..

they need to have a variety of nationalities. not just white people
and they also have to trust JK knows what she is doing with casting and writing of her characters

Honestly, JKR has not been the best with representation. Her characters are all white. With the exception of minor characters like Dean & Cho Chang (and another very minor character Kingsley Shacklebolt).

I'm Asian and tbh, I have no problem with Nagini being an Asian woman. I can see how it comes across for representation but I don't expect Jo to be pinnacle of representation either. Mostly I'm just excited to have an Asian actress be in the movie because we've always been ignored (or misrepresented) in media. Jo still has 3 more movies to tell a story and build on it. Now if after 5 movies we get nothing, then I welcome all the complaints.

See I don't know why they are blaming her 100% isn't it the casting people that hire them .

I don't mind that she is Asian tbh they need representation to

Well, we cannot blame her that much, honestly I don't know if there's a lot of variety of nationalities on England, although that is not the case for the USA, I imagine that at that time there wasn't a lot of variety. Anyways it's good to hear that Nagini was an Asian woman since some characters seem to come from different countries, it would be logical.

I have a feeling JCB & Toby will be back for a bigger arc in the next 3 movies. I mean why would they go through the trouble of asking the original actors to be back just for a snippet of a scene in part 2? At least that's what I'm hoping to believe.



Quote:
J.K. Rowling confirmed there's a huge reveal in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, but it's not the one related to Nagini.

Rowling admitted she had a hand in the audition process, even though director David Yates had final say. She admitted that Jacob was the most difficult to cast (though she thought it would be easy), but Yates called Rowling and eventually said he found their Jacob in Dan Fogler.

Rowling confirmed that the five Fantastic Beasts movies will span 19 years, and finish off in 1945 with Grindelwald and Dumbledore's duel.

The four talked about the big surprises in the trailer, their reaction to see that (and the final cut of the movie) and what fans can expect. All of that can be seen here.

Yeah since I don't think it's her job to cast people since it was casting department..

Story-wise it would make sense too. There's a backstory that I'm waiting to be told for Dumbledore & Grindelwald that they can explore for these next 3 movies. They left it vague in the book but hopefully FBAWTFT will tell that story and what really happened.
