At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

This second original screenplay from J.K. Rowling, illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima, expands on earlier events that helped shaped the Wizarding World, with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.

    The movie itself was not well executed but this is one of jk Rowling’s best stories if not the best. It’s up there with prisoner of Azkaban and half blood prince. In some ways it’s a stepping stone in a grand story and in other ways it’s a kind of genius allegory for how easy people are to manipulate.
  • Yaaaas Queen!!

    So perfect. Credence is the best, most complex character and I can hear Ezra Miller in all Credence’s lines. I love the movie and the screenplay is just as thrilling!! Also I am a Slytherin but please don’t judge because I am one of the good Slytherins not represented in the books! 🐍
  • I can’t wait to read it!!! Go JK Rowling!!!

    Couldn’t stop reading
  • Great companion piece to the movie

    By HiDaviDavid
    After watching the movie, I had to read the screenplay so I could absorb more of the story and carefully read the dialogue to get a better sense of some of the story details. After all, what’s in the movie will become part of Harry Potter history and while we may not get a full novel, at least we can have a printed screenplay to reference. It’s filled with beautiful illustrations to accompany each scene. Please watch the movie first, but this is an excellent companion piece. Can’t wait for the third installment!
  • SO excited.
