Book Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Script Edition – JK Rowling


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

5 stars

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…

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of going back into the world of Harry Potter, especially when it involves new stories. This book and The Cursed Child proved that. The Cursed Child had me prepared for what reading a script style would be like so I found myself getting easily absorbed into the story.

It was a little different seeing the magical world from only adults’ POV. It was great to learn about the magical community in America and how differently they operate from The Ministry of Magic. My favourite part though, was getting to learn so much more about the magical creatures that were only touched on during the Harry Potter series.

The book worked as a great companion to the film. During the movie I was trying to absorb as much as possible but little details sometimes slip by so using the script book gave me a chance to pick up on them. In reverse, the script doesn’t fully show how wonderful awkward all the characters were but I was able to see it because of the movie. I would definitely recommend watching and reading of the book/movie combo.

  1. That’s interesting – after seeing the film I’m definitely going to pick up the screenplay just to see how they compare. I feel like Fantastic Beasts was too overhyped to be honest but it was still a solid addition to the franchise and it’ll be interesting to see how they create another four films out of the source material.
