Hachette New Zealand announces today (Wednesday 21st March 2018) that it is to publish the original screenplay of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald by J.K. Rowling on
16th November 2018 to coincide with the film’s worldwide release in cinemas.

Set in J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world, the second of the five-film series that began with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them moves from New York to London and on to Paris. Expanding on earlier events that helped shape the wizarding world, the story has some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.

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 of whom are 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.

The published screenplay will comprise J.K. Rowling’s full script of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, featuring a cast of both familiar and new magical creatures and characters.

The English language hardback print editions will be published by Hachette in New Zealand in New Zealand, Little, Brown Book Group in the UK, and Scholastic in the US and Canada, while the eBook edition is to be simultaneously published by Pottermore, the global digital publisher of J.K. Rowling’s Wizar­ding World.

Melanee Winder, Managing Director of Hachette New Zealand, said: ‘The Hachette NZ team is thrilled to be bringing J.K. Rowling’s original screenplay for Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald to readers across the country. Like fans everywhere, we can’t wait to see what will happen next in the Wizarding World'.
