Read an Excerpt

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 shape the wizarding world, with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.

The Crimes of Grindelwald, the original screenplay by J. K. Rowling brings the movie into your home as you read! Perfectly J. K. Rowling with surprises and twists that make me extraordinarily happy and excited for the rest of the five-film series and, of course, their screenplays! 5 solid stars and a thank you to J. K. Rowling for bringing more of the Wizarding World into the light!

I recommend reading the screenplay after watching the latest Fantastic Beasts film. This provides details that are quickly shown in the film. You really get a grasp of what is going on through the story. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next installment.

I saw the movie on Friday, November 16th, 2018, and all I can tell you is that this is the introduction of darker things to come in the final three books and movies. There was surprises and some sadness and disappointment in some characters. All I can say further is that I look forward to reading the other three books and seeing the other three future movies and that I am sure that you will enjoy reading this screenplay and seeing the movie. I mean who doesn't like Nifflers and especially Niffler babies.

The girl who hung out with credence her name is nagini the name of voldemorts snake and the guy hosting the circus thing said that she would turn into a snake forever until neville killeda her with godric gryffindors sword. Also since a phenoix came to credence it means hes a dumbledore, but it is the same pheonix that dumbledore has in the harry potter books. Lastly why did voldemort make nagini a horcrux?

I wouldn't say this book was bad . I love J.K Rowling but I didn't like how the book was written like a play and I did not know what original screen play meant but I read up til 120 pages of it and decide that I didn't like it oh and if people are curious the book has 227 pages . Also something I didn't like that I paid 26.49 dollars for a book that didn't have a good set of pages I was hoping for 400 pages or more for a book that expensive. Like really its better if you go to the movie instead . I was lost most of the time when reading this book.I was literally dying to read this book that she made but I am so disappointed that I was so happy about this book coming out and turning out I didn't like it . I had moved a lot of things in my day to go to Barns and nobles get the book early so when they ran out I would have one . I was disappointed but I did like it enough to give it a 3 out of 5 as rating . if you like screen play totally recommend for you but if you don't like screen play don't get it . I returned the book any ways .
