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…
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, 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 to any reader’s bookshelf.
This post is really just here for me to fangirl over this book, this movie, and Newt *heart eyes*
I don’t usually read screen plays/ scripts but this was so wonderful! Reading it right after the movie was amazing and I loved being able to pick up on things I didn’t pick up on in the movie, like Grindlewald was actually in the opening scene before the newspaper montage? I completely missed that watching the movie I was to hyped that the ads had finished and I may have, maybe been shoving my face full of popcorn…I’m not sorry.
Things I loved
I LOVE the illustrations of all the beasts as the chapter (are they called chapters?) headings and the absolutely beautiful cover and binding.
Newt is probably one of my all time favourite character from JK Rowling now, reading about him warming up to Jacob when Jacob starts interacting with all the animals in the first suitcase visit just had me grinning and so happy. Also all his little moments with Tina are awkward and adorable!
All the beasts are described fantastically and yay for me now semi remembering their names.
If you loved the movie and you’re thinking about picking this up as well, go for it! If anything it made me love Newt and all the characters even more. Especially Niffler the little kleptomaniac.
I just absolutely LOVED the movie, I thought it was hilarious and awesome, Newts awkwardness and love for animals is so precious and Jacob and his muggle *cough* no maj misteps had me laughing so much, when he drank the giggle water I could help laughing and loving him instantly, so suave 😄
Have you read the script? Seen the movie? Did you love both, hate both? Love one and hate the other. What ever it is let me know down below also what was your fave creature and or scene?!
My Fave creature was the Niffler I mean how could it not be, 1. he’s so sassy and silly and 2. He’s based off a platypus which is a strange australian animal that even we look at with confusion, I mean platypus’s are awesome but such strange-looking duck fish. My fave scene is definitely entering Newts case and meeting all the animals for the first time.
P.S If you don’t know JK has re vamped her website and answered a few questions like why Next can’t just apperate from England to America and Why Harry didn’t develop an obscurous, yay for extra info.
