“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.

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.

Not quite what I was expecting

Some interesting bits though overall it felt drawn out. Perhaps a better listen for someone who knows very little or nothing at all about the franchise. Some of the special effects seemed to be trying too hard. Finished listening though there were a few thoughts to abandon it early on.

ENCHANTING!

I thoroughly enjoyed this from start to finish and I hoped it would last longer! What an amazing insight into this film (I haven’t actually seen it but now I’m going to) It was just enchanting and I loved the documentary elements.

Fantastic

Great look/listen at the making this film. Loved Jacobs narrative bringing this to life I had read other reviews saying this audiobook was not so great! But I've thoroughly enjoyed it and will listen again

Magic of the behind the scenes

I love and will always love these kind of book-documentaries and especially when they are so greatly told and presented. I knew what I was getting myself into and I enjoyed every second of it. Loved the way Dan Fogler read it - it was so fun and entertaining, and how the cast and crew where involved in it, as well. It made me appreciate the work done behind the scenes so much more - it is awe-inspiring, especially considering all of the work prop masters, costume designers etc. There are so many geniuses working for the movie to be made for the audiences to see on the cinema screen - that I personally wanted to pay respect to them and say a big "thank you" for their craftswork! And for me - listening to this audio-book - it was just that! THANK YOU! :)

P.s. Please do not take it personally, but I really do not understand the people who thought it was the actual screenplay of the movie (I guess there are people going in blindly without reading the summary, yet the risk did not pay off?).

Brilliant!!

I love this, it’s is really interesting and it makes me want to work on a movie set!!
The people who put one star should have read the description properly, it clearly states it is the making of the movie, not the book of the movie or the screenplay.
I listen to this on repeat it is amazing finding out about the real magic of the movie, hoe they make the sets and going in depth into the different personalities of the characters. Dan Fogler reads it brilliantly, I wish he narrated other audiobooks!!
I would really recommend this for HP fans!!!

stupid voices

Dan Fogler would have been fine if he had not put on stupid voices, they were just annoying.
