Twitter’s Glorious Reaction to Jude Law Dumbledore Casting
It’s been roughly five hours since news dropped that Jude Law has been cast as Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel.
As usual, Twitter is the best place to find real-time reactions to any news. Obligingly, Twitter did not disappoint after the casting bombshell.
Some were ecstatic:

Some were on the fence:
Like, it's gonna be cool. But Jude Law is a fox. Dumbledore is like a grandfather. This is uncomfortable.

I'm fine with Jude Law as Dumbledore. It's trying to believe that Jude Law would want to bang Johnny Depp that throws it all off.

I'm not sure how I feel about Jude Law playing Dumbledore because I'm fairly certain I don't want to be attracted to Albus but I will

Jude Law is going to be a great younger Dumbledore but the problem is that Johnny Depp's hair is still here and Colin Farrell's face is not.

Some were downright disappointed:
#FantasticBeasts Stop. Just stop please. #JudeLaw #Dumbledore #FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem

But now,#JudeLaw as Albus Percival Wulfric Brian #Dumbledore?
I can't. No matter how hard I try, I can't conceive such image in my mind

Well, Dumbledore has been cast. At least he is english and auburn. Let's hope he will do justice to the character! https://t.co/b24LY7Tgcx

And some were stoked that the actor they’d predicted for the role had been chosen:
That's a damn good list. I really like the idea of Jude Law or Ewan McGregor playing Dumbledore https://t.co/IeHz1cjG5p

There are already earnest fan edits of Jude Law as Dumbledore on my Tumblr dash, how am I supposed to process this.
