Publisher's Summary

This is a behind-the-scenes audio documentary, recorded on the set of the movie Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

“This film is a different beast.” (Eddie Redmayne)

Available only in audio, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - Makers, Mysteries and Magic lifts the lid on the moviemaking secrets behind the latest installment in J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts series. Narrator Dan Fogler (who plays No-Maj Jacob Kowalski) will guide you through the process of creating the magical on-screen world and explore the story, themes, and characters of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.  

Over 100 hours of interviews with the cast and crew have been used to create this unique audio adventure that’s sure to be loved by fans of filmmaking and the Wizarding World. Across its nine chapters, you will explore themes such as what’s next for Newt Scamander, whether we’ve seen every side of Albus Dumbledore, what makes Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald so dangerous, and what connects the worlds of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts.  

With unrivalled access to the film’s cast, directors, producers, and makers, hear what it takes to build 1927 Paris on a lot just outside London, discover what influenced the design of the Elder Wand, meet the individuals who constructed iconic wizarding world locations including Hogwarts’ Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom - and mastered the craft and artistry required to fill it with authenticity and excitement.     

With contributions from actors including Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore), Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein), and Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein) as well as director David Yates and producer David Heyman.   

Give your eyes a rest and your ears a treat. Take a trip behind the scenes of the Wizarding World like never before.

Not the story just behind the scenes of movie

So disappointed with this purchase, I thought it was the book on the film but instead its more of an early access to what you'll expect on the DVD/Bluray release with behind the scenes and interview to cast/crew of film only different is you'll get the movie and visual magic rather than paying the full price for an audio book just to listen to it.

Will be very hesitant to buy audio books on new films in future.
