If you've seen Fantastic Beasts multiple times and just can't wait to watch more of Newt Scamander's adventures, I've got something you have to see. Eddie Redmayne narrates the new Fantastic Beasts book in this video from Pottermore, and it's just what you need to get excited about the re-release of the Harry Potter tie-in book, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Required reading for Hogwarts first years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a wizarding world bestiary written by Newt Scamander. It was one of two Harry Potter tie-in books that Rowling released in 2001, the other being Quidditch Through the Ages. Proceeds from the sales of both Fantastic Beasts and Quidditch benefited Comic Relief.
With the Fantastic Beasts movie in theaters, and its screenplay on store shelves, now seems like a great time to re-release the original Fantastic Beasts book. This time around, there are new beasts to read about, redesigned covers to fawn over, and — of course — an audiobook version narrated by none other than Newt Scamander himself, Eddie Redmayne.
