As the excitement for Fantastic Beasts continues to build, we can now reveal that J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut will be published later this year.
A new book from J.K. Rowling is always a good reason to celebrate. But this year will mark the first time the author has published a screenplay, which you’ll be able to buy as a print edition from Little, Brown (UK) or Scholastic (US and Canada), or as an eBook right here on Pottermore.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them follows the exploits of magizoologist Newt Scamander in 1920s New York, and the screenplay will be published on 18 November – the day of the movie's release (as if you don't have that date in your calendar already!)
The news that J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut will be published comes in a very exciting year for the author, who has also collaborated on the new stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Keep your eyes on Pottermore for all the latest updates on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
You can purchase your copy of J.K. Rowling’s first ever screenplay from the Pottermore Shop.
