Potter fans may be waiting with baited breath for the theatrical release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them but now, it looks like there’ll be a second way in which they’ll be able to dive head first into the wizarding world of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).

Pottermore announced on Monday (April 26) that following the theatrical release of Fantastic Beasts J.K. Rowling will also publish her original screenplay for the film. The screenplay will be available both in print as a book format, and as an eBook via Pottermore. Both versions of the screenplay will be available for purchase starting November 19.

In addition to the screenplay, Rowling previously announced that she would also be releasing an updated version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (her mock Hogwarts textbook originally released in 2001, and written for charity) in February of 2017. According to the initial press release announcing the book, the updated version will feature brand new content by Rowling herself. We’re guessing the new content may tie the book in a bit more to the film.

Between Rowling’s various Fantastic Beasts related projects and the upcoming Harry Potter ad the Cursed Child play, it’s definitely quite and exciting time to be a Potter fan!
