    The cinema release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them promises to expand J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World in quite magical ways. Set 70 years before Harry Potter arrived at Hogwarts, it follows the Magizoologist Newt Scamander (played in the film by Eddie Redmayne) as he arrives in New York for what is intended to be a brief stay...

    As soon as Newt's settled in the city that never sleeps, things take a surprising turn - his magical case has been misplaced and some of his beasts escape. With the No-Majs (that's the American term for Muggles) not the most tolerant of those who dab in magic, a huge adventure laced with danger begins...

    Presented in keepsake hardback, this is the original screenplay for the film by J.K. Rowling. Her screenwriting debut, it's packed with imagination and new characters to love and is sure to help fans relive the story again and again as you eagerly await the next four films in the franchise!
