J.K. Rowling invites you to explore a new era of the Wizarding World . . . 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. *** Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is available now! ***

This is the first play I have read and it was surprisingly easy to read although it had one confusing part near the end.  Luckily mum explained it to me and we watched the movie too.

The book is exactly the same as the movie and although it wasn't the same as the Harry Potter books it was good to read about the same magical world.  I like all the creatures and would love to go into Newts briefcase.

I really liked this book. All of news creatures are so cool and I love the sound of them so much. I watched the movie before the book and the movie is so close to the book and I really liked to read it and see it in movie form. I would of liked it if it was more like the Harry Potter books that I love but otherwise it is a great read.

this script is so interesting but its most interesting as you can say the lines along with the film if you have it. I'm such a big Harry Potter fan!

Really enjoyed this . I haven't actually watched the film , so this is probably a different way round then how you would normally do it i.e:you would watch the film first  . The film seems to have gone down a storm and while I was aware it was different to the original text book prior to reading this ; it was still wonderful and I relished a new adventure in the existing world , having finished the Harry potter series a good year ago . Script was a new format for me , but I have always loved book's better and I felt like it was just as much a good experience , if anything better , than watching the film as I was able to fully digest everything the writer gave to us . Awesome ! Really cool . Yay

I totally loved this book. It was interesting to read a screenplay as they have to be read slightly differently from a normal book. The book itself is beautiful and the little illustrations at the start of each chapter are very cool! It was nice to read the story after watching the film.

I enjoyed the story very much. The characters worked well together and the good wizards worked well as a team to save the animals. My favourite character was Newt Scamander and my favourite beast was the Nifler.
This was the screenplay, which got a bit confusing because it had stage directions and things. I want to read the book by Newt Scamander when it is rereleased.

I found this book to be as dull as the film was, I like Harry Potter and thought Fantastic Beasts would be similar to it, but it's silly beacuse Newt Scammander is a British who souds like Harry and then the Americans just ruin that.
