Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald screenplay date confirmed!


If you loved reading the script for the first Fantastic Beasts novel, you’ll love this news about the second movie’s screenplay.

Very few movies will release the scripts. None have released the screenplay as a book for the fans on the same day as the theatrical release. That is until last year, when Little, Brown released the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to purchase. Fans are still buying it today, proving that it was the best move to make. Now the publisher is doing the same with the second book.

Little, Brown has finally confirmed the one thing we’d all hoped. The Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald screenplay will be released in stores on the exact same date as the movie is out in theaters. That means you’ll get your hands on it on November 16, 2018. If for any reason you can’t make it to the theaters, you can at least get hold of the screenplay and give it a read. What better news could you want?
