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.

One of her best
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.
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!!!
I am such a big HP fan and I loved fantastic beasts. I am so happy that they came out with a sequel. I just know this is going to be a great book!!!
