I chose to read the screenplay after a short illness I faced, to cheer me up. J.K. Rowling did not disappoint! I was not disappointed.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
It was a perfect choice. I had not read a screenplay before, only a play. But the structure did not bother me at all, perhaps in part because I have watched the film.
While reading this screenplay, the movie played in my head again, clearly with all the lovely detail. Even the notes on staging and actor’s specific movements added to the narrative. I felt like I was watching the story unfold on the big screen all over again.
I was immersed back to this world that J.K. Rowling created, and I loved every minute of it.
I am not sure I would read a script of any other movie. But then again, that is why I am a Potterhead.

NEWT: Now there’s absolutely nothing for you to worry about.
JACOB: Tell me – has anyone ever believed you when you told them not to worry?
NEWT: My philosophy is that worrying means you suffer twice.
