Audible and Pottermore Publishing go behind the scenes of Fantastic Beasts

Audible UK will this November release an audiobook that goes behind the scenes of the Fantastic Beasts film franchise, with interviews with Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law and more.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald – Makers, Mysteries And Magic (£23.95) is narrated by Dan Fogler, who plays Jacob Kowalski in the franchise, and was filmed during the making of the upcoming movie ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’, which will be released on 16th November.

Highlights of the audiobook include interviews with actors Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Katherine Waterson, Alison Sudol, Zoë Kravitz, Ezra Miller and Claudia Kim, as well as with crew members such as director David Yates, producer David Heyman and production designer Stuart Craig.

Fogler said: “This whole experience has been an adventure for me and I’m really excited for fans to come along for the ride! We made an exclusive, all-access audiobook that takes you to places that no microphone has been before. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it takes to make not just an epic movie but one set in the Wizarding World, this is a must-listen!  It covers everything from props, costumes, and acting ... to wands and Nifflers. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we’ve enjoyed making it.”

Kent DePinto, director of original programming at Audible UK, said: “We are thrilled to offer Audible listeners the opportunity to enjoy a brilliant performance of yet another essential component of the Wizarding World. Dan’s narration and the insights shared by the cast, creators and makers give listeners an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the making of the latest chapter in the Fantastic Beasts film series."

The audiobook was written by documentary maker Hana Walker-Brown and journalist Mark Salisbury, and produced by Pottermore Publishing with Audible Originals and Warner Bros. Consumer Products. It will be released on 16th November to coincide with the film and is available for pre-order on Audible.
