Return to the wizarding world and discover how director David Yates and producer David Heyman brought J.K. Rowling's all new adventure, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to the big screen.

Inside the Magic: The Making of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them introduces filmmaking fans to Newt Scamander, Magizoologist, and the principal characters, locations, artifacts and beasts that he encounters in 1920s New York. Explore the filmmaking magic behind MACUSA, the secretive American counterpart of the Ministry of Magic; and the magical secrets of Newt's case.

Each section contains profiles of the key characters, with revealing insights from Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, and many others, together with sections on set design, costumes, make-up, special effects, art department & props (especially wands!), which are illuminated by interviews with David Heyman, David Yates, Stuart Craig, Colleen Atwood and a magical army of other crew. Packed with exciting photos that reveal the filmmaking process in discerning detail, and officially licensed by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this is the definitive adult companion book to the film, and perfect introduction to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Great book!
By: Nur Yanny Chew

This book does an excellent job of cataloguing all of the ephemera from the sets and costumes. Oftentimes, you'll read about a prop that was barely even seen in the movie, but you still get the sense that it helped make the scene feel more believable, or that it helped the actors realize their character more fully. You get to learn a lot about how each performer got into their role, what they thought about their character, and what a dream it was to participate in the Harry Potter universe. With pictures and interviews from the cast and filmmakers, this book was wonderful to read about the process behind the screenplay and movie.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (COOL Stuff).
By: Ulil Amri

Bought this book because it provided many information about the film. There are lots of things unsolved from the film and this book explains them in a quite informative way. Great book and great pictures.

The Making of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
By: Almeyda Tara

Reading this felt like reading a magazine, it was so fun with all of those facts and pictures! It helped me a lot to understand the movie. Because there were some things that I can't understand at first, like with the election, the new Salemers, and stuff. This book explained everything, the background stories of both of the characters and the actors, the details of the film, the process, and etc. They explained how did they make the world building and it was super awesome!

just look so real and detailed. I mean the plot was at 1920s! We'll know more about their wands too and they're so gorgeous. There're some sketch here and there and Newt's sketch with his unique coat.  But well this book was mainly discussed about the making of the film, so it wasn't really talking about the Fantastic Beasts. They still got their part but it was like 11 pages or so.
