I watched the movie and then read the screenplay today. Every scene and dialogue in the book matches with what I saw on the screen. It was like watching the movie for the second time – but with my added imagination, making it even more awesome. The descriptions of the beasts and reading more about the beasts made reading the book worthwhile.
This series is fantastic. The movies were better than Harry Potter series as JKR probably had more control over the movies as she wrote the screenplay herself. Harry Potter movies were not done that well and were poor adaptations. But this movie series will definitely do better as even the story is great.
I want to see Dumbledore and Grindelwald facing each other in the next movie hopefully. I heard the next movie will be based in UK so hopefully we will get a glimpse of Hogwarts. Ilvermorny did not make an appearance in this movie which was little disappointing. But seeing adult wizards and witches fight was kinda cool, after having seen school children trying to fight in the earlier movies. You see wizards with great power fighting with aurors here.
I don’t think this series comes under young adult fantasy (thank God! I had enough of YA). This is definitely adult fantasy.
Again looks like lot of people had problem with the format of the book, but I loved reading it in this format too.
If you like magic, you will love this book/movie.
Thank you JKR for this series.
