Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald

An original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

Description: 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.

So usually I hate reading screenplays, it takes awhile for me to get used to them, but I got the hang of this one pretty quickly. I watched the movie awhile ago, while it was in theatres.. but everything happened so fast That I didn’t really understand what was happening most of the time. So because I barely could keep up with what was happening in the movie I decided to give this a go. And I actually really liked this screenplay! It helped me to understand what was happening and what emotions the actors had to make in various scenes that I obviously didn’t pick up in the movie with all the flashing of spells and magic and quick cameras and stuff. But after reading the book I feel like the story is getting really intriguing! I can’t wait to see where this goes from here. I love all of the art in this book, specifically the thestral picture at the beginning of scene 1! (Trying to convince my husband that I need a new tattoo) this book was fun to read as well as gorgeous! Wether you liked the movie, or like me didn’t fully comprehend it.. I suggest you read this screenplay! It’s absolutely worth it!

I rate this book
