If you thought that the release of the screenplay for ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ was a fluke, then you might be surprised that J.K. Rowling is set to release a screenplay for ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them‘ too! In the previously mentioned play which was debuted to highly mixed reviews, Rowling had developed the story but not written it where this one has her fully creating the release. Honestly, it should feel quite a bit more at home for fans of Potter’s Wizarding World than the last installment which truly felt quite forced with characters having been changed quite a bit from what we were all expecting.

Rowling made the announcement on Twitter showing off the cover which will be a black book with gold lettering and images which will soon be available everywhere. The exact release date of the book has yet to be announced.

You can take a look at the tweet with the cover release below!


Clearly, this cover is a thing of beauty and fans who have an expansive ‘Harry Potter’ collection will be thrilled to add this to it.

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident… were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, David Chester, Samantha Morton, Carmen Ejogo, Jon Voight, Ron Perlman, and Colin Farrell breaks out of its cage on November 18, 2016.
