Scholastic and Little, Brown to Publish Fantastic Beasts Screenplay

Scholastic will publish the screenplay of the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in the U.S. and Canada on November 19, the day after the highly-anticipated film hits theaters. 

The movie, which marks J.K. Rowling's screenwriting debut, stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman and Jon Voight. The screenplay ($24.99, 9781338109061) will be published as a hardcover, while an e-book edition will be released by Pottermore simultaneously in collaboration with Scholastic in the U.S. and Canada and Little, Brown in the U.K.

"With any new writing from J.K. Rowling, we know that we are not only engaging her vast fan base, but are also building a new generation of readers," said Ellie Berger, president of Scholastic's U.S. trade division. "The much anticipated release of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie marks another magical and exciting moment for film lovers and readers everywhere, and we are absolutely delighted to publish J.K. Rowling's screenplay debut."
