Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay
H ow do you turn a page textbook into five blockbuster films? If anyone knows, it is JK Rowling, the author who transformed a copy print first run into one of the top 10 bestselling books of all time.

Rowling makes clear from the outset that Newt is not Harry 2. While the scale of her world was previously constrained by Potter departing to Scotland every year to get an education, with Newt, a thirtysomething public servant, she has access to a far wider canvas. We first meet him in s New York — almost 60 years before Harry is even born — where he is attempting to return one of his animals to its native habitat in Arizona when shenanigans ensue and a bunch of beasts escape from their home in his Mary Poppins-style briefcase.

Instead, it's a textbook purported to be used by Harry, and is "authored" by Newt Scamander — the protagonist of the film.
Perhaps no other author could publish their jaunts into screenwriting as bestselling books, but this is Rowling, after all: the one author who can inspire adults to don school uniforms at midnight and head back to class — albeit one where they can drink Voldermorjitos. More than 20 years since the first book was published, there is still no equal to Harry Pottermania in literature or the flood of merchandise it has spawned: backpacks, chess sets, pyjamas, Lego, wands, soft toys. Even scripts published as books, a strange if lucrative endeavour , copies of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have sold in the UK alone continue to attract fan excitement and marketing pizzazz.

So, Rowling took this textbook and wrote it up as Newt for all of us Muggles to read. The book is almost like a encyclopedia describing many of the beasts and creatures in Harry Potter. It is really cool book and it teaches you a little more about the creatures in Harry Potter. The movie, however, is a completely different script written by J. K Rowling.
