Hi, my biggest passion is write books, I just starting, but I will make my dream come true. You can follow me on my blog: Las palabras nos hacen volar (Spanish blog) or on 'The Words make us fly' (English blog)
This afternoon my friend sent me a link on Twitter. The link was from the Jk Rowling Facebook account, before open it I couldn't imaginate what I will read... What I read was AMAZING.
J. K. Rowling are going to write the script for a series of films based on the magical world.
Warner Bros. announced on 12th September 2013 that J.K. Rowling would be making her screenwriting debut with 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'!!!!!, the first in a new film series which is part of their expanded creative partnership with J.K. Rowling.
The films will be inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook of the same name, and will feature the book’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander.
JK told us that the idea of make a film came from Warner Bros,
As she considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that she couldn’t dislodge. That is how she ended up pitching her own idea for a film to Warner Bros.
Aren’t all Potter fans always craved to know just a bit more about Harry’s world? I am sure we must have all wondered if there are more kinds of dragons other than the four mentioned in Goblet of Fire. Or are pixies really all that nasty as described in Chamber of Secrets? Or what exactly are grindylows and kappas?
Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where she was so happy for seventeen years, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.
So for celebrate this news I will make a small review about the book! The book is really small but JK will write the movie, so We will discover a lot of new things!
"A copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them resides on almost every wizarding household in the country. Now, for a limited period only, Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats, and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to improving and saving the lives of children around the world, which means that the dollars and Galleons you exchange for it will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, I can only hope most sincerely that passing wizards feel more charitable if they ever see you being attacked by a Manticore."
It is a Harry Potter book that I rarely read but always it make me laugh when I do. They were perfect for the charity they were written for: Comic Relief, because they offer just that, some comic relief.
Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them is written as Harry’s school book and has humoristic comments in the margin, like many school books do. The book itself is funny at times but it is really the comments that are the highlight of the book.
These books are not necessary to understand the Potterverse but they certainly add a bit of flavour to them.
It was (too) short and interesting, written in the amazing style of Rowling and it wowed me. In this book you will find many interesting creatures, some mention in the books, some not. I felt like it was too short, there could be a whole encyclopedia on these creatures and I'd read it all.
The beasts are categorized by alphabet and they all have the dangerous level of Xs by their name. There are nice descriptions and bottom page notes and there's also a foreword by Dumbledore and an introduction to the book. It looks like a real textbook.
I enjoyed reading it very much.
