Hello, Johnny Depp. It’s nice to see you at a “Fantastic Beasts” premiere event.

Though Depp is the titular star of sequel “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” (he plays Gellert Grindelwald), he has been absent for much of the international press tour for the new “Harry Potter” franchise film, save for a quick in-character cameo at San Diego Comic-Con back in July.

Meanwhile, we haven’t been able to take our eyes off co-star Ezra Miller and his outrageous red-carpet ensembles.

But on Tuesday, Depp showed up for “The Crimes of Grindelwald” UK premiere at Britain’s Cineworld Leicester Square, and he looked healthy, pouty and like his 1990 movie-star self.

Specifically, his black ensemble with layers of silver accessories was reminiscent of his Edward Scissorhand look.

And his facial expression and hair was totally “Cry-Baby.”

Depp has shied away from press in recent months, appearing publicly at only a few events including the Zurich Film Festival since the summer. 

Last year, J.K. Rowling and director David Yates stood by Depp amid a casting backlash after Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard said he physically abused her. (Depp says he was “falsely accused.”)

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” hits theaters nationwide Nov. 16.
