When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt's fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone . . .
Inspired by the original Hogwart's textbook by Newt Scamander, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original screenplay marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. A feat of imagination and featuring a cast of remarkable characters and magical creatures, this is epic adventure-packed storytelling at its very best. Whether an existing fan or new to the wizarding world, this is a perfect addition for any film lover or reader's bookshelf.
It's no secret I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, I have pretty much every book to do with the magical world sitting on my bookshelf. I've had the Fantastic Beasts book for years so when I heard it was being made into a series of films I did a little squeal of excitement. After seeing the film and loving it I knew I'd have to add this screenplay to my wizarding world collection of books. I mean just the cover alone sold it to me.
I wasn't sure how I'd actually get along with reading a screenplay but in all honesty I loved it, for anyone who hasn't read a screenplay before, like me, I found that this one flowed really easy and it took no time at all to get into it and read it as if it was just a normal story. It wonderfully brought the film back to life and is a beautiful edition to my collection. Highly recommended.
