J.K. Rowling Unveils Crimes of Grindelwald Screenplay

J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter and screen write for the movies and Fantastic Beast series, had just unveiled the new screenplay for Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindelwald from Scholastic Books.

According to Scholastic;

Coming November 16th

J.K. Rowling’s five-part Fantastic Beasts adventure series continues with the original screenplay for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

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 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.

This second original screenplay from J.K. Rowling, illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima, expands on earlier events that helped shape the wizarding world, with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.

Along with this news, J.K. Rowling’s official site also states she’s working on Fantastic Beasts 3.

“I’ve just finished the fourth Galbraith novel, Lethal White, and I’m now writing the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts 3. After that I’ll be writing another book for children. I’ve been playing with the (non-Harry Potter/wizarding world) story for about six years, so it’s about time I get it down on paper.”

We’ll keep you informed as new details arise for Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter.
