Over this Thanksgiving week, I have recently read the entire book, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K Rowling and watched the movie. I am going to do something entirely new. I am going write about the movie and the book. Isn’t that fantastic!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay
J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut is captured in this exciting hardcover edition of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay.
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…
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, 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 to any reader’s bookshelf.
I read this screenplay in one day, which is a record because I am rather a slow reader. I liked the book. I am actually the first, in my family to read this book and I have put this book to the top of my two younger sisters “to read pile”. It was a little hard to read at the beginning because of the style of writing but I enjoyed the story. I read the book before watching the movie but I would recommend that if you want to read this book, watch the movie first. It will help because some of the creatures were hard to imagine and the movie helped with that. The funny lines in the book were humorous and were just so British, which I liked very much. (And just a hint: those lines were in the movie.) So over all, the book was a fantastic read.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Movie
Lets just say that everything about the movie was well done–the music, the actors and actresses, and the scenery. When I heard that there was going to be more movies after this one, I was so excited. This book and movie were both good, clean, and for all ages. My sisters and brother, who went with me to the movies, all enjoyed watching it, My brother, when he first watched the movie’s preview, thought the movie was going to be ridiculous but he came with us and enjoyed the movie.
If you cannot tell, I would highly recommend this book and movie!
I can’t wait until the next books or movies come out!
