    One thought on “Inside the Magic: The Making of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

    1. I went into this book as a long time Harry Potter fan and tentative Fantastic Beasts fan andemerged brimming with excitement and intrigue for this series. For a fact, I hate change, so it goes without saying, the more I heard about the Harry Potter reboot, the more I dug my heels in. Set in the US? No Hogwarts? No more calling them muggles? Sign me out. Even when I saw the movie, while I loved the fantastic beasts part, I was confused by the subplots (the election, the new Salemers, etc). Ergo, [...]

    2. Hvor var det hyggeligt at komme med bag kulisserne og genopleve filmens magi. Jeg sætter i hvert fald bare endnu mere pris på filmen nu, hvor jeg virkelig ved, hvor stort og gennemtænkt et arbejde den har været at lave.

    3. 3,5 más bien. Me ha gustado bastante, y la edición no podía ser más maravillosa. Eso sí, para lo que suelen ser los libros de información sobre películas, quizá se queda un pelín corto, de ahí que no le ponga más nota. En cualquier caso, muy recomendable para fans de la película que quieran conocer mejor sus entresijos.

    4. Toen ik voor het eerst de Harry Potter films keek vond ik de Making Ofs altijd leuker dan de films. Ik wilde altijd weten hoe ze bepaalde dingen gemaakt hadden en hoe ze op het idee waren gekomen. Ik vond het prachtig om al die kostuumontwerpen te zien en hoe ze van niets toch nog een heel mooi decor konden maken. Ook keek ik met veel liefde de interviews. In die tijd speelde ik de interviews na en deed ik alsof ik mensen rondleidde op de set. Later begon ik de films wel veel meer te waarderen e [...]

    5. Sukeltaa nimensä mukaisesti Ihmeotukset ja niiden olinpaikat elokuvan kulisseihin. Tarjolla paljon tietoa kaikista elokuvan tekemiseen liittyvistä vaiheista, kuten maailman luonnista, näyttelijöiden valinnasta ja otusten luomisesta. Kirjassa on myös kohtuullisen paljon tietoa, jota ei ole tullut esille esimerkiksi elokuvassa itsessään tai muissa lähteissä. Ja koska tämä kirja ei ole ReadMe:n vaan HarperCollinsin kustantama, kirjassa ei ole oikeastaan lainkaan ärsyttäviä kirjoitus- [...]

    6. Me encantó saber tantos detalles de la producción y de los actores, las imágenes de los set y el arte de los animales y las varitas. Y esas pequeñas pistas de personajes o detalles de lo que vendrá, lo recomiendo para cualquier potterhead de corazón.

    7. I didn't learn anything new, but I loved the quality of the book and the glossy pictures and details. These types of books are more for super fans and collectors than readers (I consider myself a bit of both).

    8. What a wonderful journey into the making of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Now all I need to do is read the screenplay! :)

    9. I'm a lowkey fan of FBaWtFT (This title is so long lmao) and I can't help it when I knew there was a big discount for this one. 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 [...]

    10. Can't decide to give this a 3.5 or a 4 star.Review Taken from The Pewter WolfThis is a behind-the-scenes book revealing most (not all, but most) of the film-making of Fantastic Beasts, with character profiles (and small interviews with the actors), props and sets, information about New York, MACUSA and The Blind Pig, the characters within Newt's case and other titbits.I am a little torn on this. Now, I love these types of books so, yes, this book can't go too much into depth because of spoilers. [...]

    11. Es el primer libro de este tipo que leo, y me ha sorprendido gratamente. Me fascinó la película y me quedé con ganas de más, y al no haber libro (solo el guión) tuve la oportunidad de hacerme con este libro y a sido una buenisima idea. La verdad es que no se mucho sobre la producción de una pelicula, y gracias a este libro he podido conocer más este trabajo y el mundo mágico de Rowling.Así que 5 estrellas bien merecidas.

    12. Totally loved it great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great

    13. Great book! I'm really interested in the backstage/behind the scenes things of such big productions! Great photos as well. Only con was that's a Dutch translation so the names were slightly different.

    14. I've always loved these kinds of books, as there's always so much to learn about the production of these films, and so many talented people lend their hand in making them a reality. What I love about the Harry Potter films is all the little touches, props, and costuming that go into the production: things that aren't immediately apparent in the shots, but help the actors and the viewer feel that these are fully realized worlds.This book does an excellent job of cataloguing all of the ephemera fr [...]

    15. Inside the Magic is such a fun book. I bought it as a Christmas present, but had to have a cheeky read before wrapping it. It’s really everything a good companion book should be – informative and beautifully designed, with plenty of immersion in both the fictional world and production.It’s not perfect, of course. At a scant 144 pages, it was never going to be a hugely in-depth exploration of the film. But let’s be honest, I could have read entire essays – if not novels – about the ch [...]

    16. Although it is a short book with only 143 pages, it is packed with information and stills from the film featuring lovely little notes and fun facts about how the film was created. I particularly enjoyed reading all of the little facts about the wands, the designs of the sets and costumes and of course how they designed the Beasts. It was a real eye opener to see just how much effort is made for two hours worth of footage, and even then half of it isn't even fully shown in the final cut. On a sid [...]

    17. How did my review get deleted? Anyway doesn't matter.I have a weak spot for books about films and any making off. This was so worth it. It was detailed, well written, with multiple point of views.I especially like the photo's that were added and the props that the actors used. All of this adds to the way you look back on the film and gives it a stronger sense of place. It fits perfectly in the Harry Potter world. True it is a different time and place, but all in all you can see how life would be [...]

    18. Review - I loved this because the film was so fantastic! It was really interesting to see how they made the characters and creatures come to life on the screen, especially with the special effects and how the actors had to act against green screens and stand ins for the creatures. I think that the interviews with the actors, director and producers were enlightening as it gave an insight into how a film is created and what happens with different departments working together to create something.Ge [...]

    19. Lo amé básicamente 😅 es un libro que cuenta todos esos detalles que hacen la magia del séptimo arte y le da su merecido reconocimiento a todos los artistas y su trabajo que pasaron meses recreando lo que surge de la mente de Jo Rowling.Desde los personajes, los animales y sus hábitats, pasando por las varitas, los vestuarios y hasta los carteles publicitarios y todo con lujo de detalles 💜¡Súper recomendable!

    20. I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, and I was excited to read this book. This book was very beautiful to read. The artwork displayed in it was mesmerizing and incredible. I loved seeing all of the art, from concepts to final renderings and everything in between. As an artist, I also learned a lot from reading this book. It was great to see the journey that they took and all of the ideas for the specific beasts. This is definitely a must read for any Harry Potter fan or artist.

    21. Seeing the insane detail of the making of one of the movies set in the wizarding world is amazing.No wonder it takes them A LONG TIME to come out with a new one. At least with the Harry Potter series they use a lot of the same sets and props. Fantastic Beasts is another beast entirely, pardon the pun. Also, I'm in love with Queenie's wand. I wonder if they also sell the Fantastic Beasts wands in the theme parks.I am so going to re-watch this tonight and drool over the details.

    22. This was such a fascinating addition to the word of Fantastic Beasts.I loved learning more about the actors and things they added to their roles which ended up changing the planned course for a character and seeing all the costume designs and how much though goes into things that fall under the radar with all the magic going on on screen.

    23. Loved it! Only thing if you plan on buying this, 90% of the information is on the bonus special features of the dvd. But!! The photos are close up and some are not on the dvd, etc. It was great learning hidden fun facts of the making of this film.

    24. Buen libro acerca de como se llevó a cabo la elaboración de la película con entrevistas con los actores así como los artistas de vestuario, diseño, etc. Pdta. : Hay algunos datos que no están en la película como que el hermano de Newt es un AUROR y es conocido de Percival.

    25. This book didn't really give much information on the movie. It was mostly character's backstories and their appearances, and the cast and set members complimenting each other and Rowling.
