After Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 the world believed that the universe of magic had come to an end. But much to our surprise a spin-off, Fantastic Beasts set in the same fictional universe was released and took us out of our demise. Now a second part of the same series is scheduled to debut as both a movie and screenplay, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Fantastic Beasts is set much before on the Harry Potter timeline. The first part – “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” took place in New York in the 1920’s. The sequel will cover the journey of New York-London- Paris. All Potterheads are already restless to go on this journey with the ‘magizoologist’ Newton Scamander. The movie and the book will have some known characters like Albus Dumbledore and that itself is enough of a reason to pre-book.
The first book was on the 3rd number of USA today’s list of sales and the film made more than $800 million. Little, Brown Book is releasing the hardback print of the book in USA and Scholastic in Canada. Pottermore is releasing the E-book edition.
We are once again going to see the magic of JK Rowling come alive. Charlie King, managing director of Little, Brown Book Group has hinted at how exciting this journey will be and where the wizarding world will take us now.
The movie is scheduled to be released on November 16 2018.
