Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindelwald - the Original Screenplay
The Wizarding World journey continues . . . The powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most of whom are unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second screenplay in a five-film series to be written by J.K. Rowling, author of the internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Set in 1927, a few months after the events of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and moving from New York to London, Paris and even back to Hogwarts, this story of mystery and magic reveals an extraordinary new chapter in the wizarding world. Illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - The Original Screenplay was released on 16 November 2018, the same day the film premiered in the UK and US. It was released in both book form and digital form. The events of the screenplay followed the screenplay of the first film. It was written by J. K. Rowling. The cover was designed by MinaLima Design.

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, commonly shortened to Hogwarts , is a fictional British school of magic for students aged eleven to eighteen, and is the primary setting for the first six books in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Rowling has suggested that she may have inadvertently taken the name from the hogwort plant (Croton capitatus), which she had seen at Kew Gardens some time before writing the series, although the names "The Hogwarts" and "Hoggwart" appear in the 1954 Nigel Molesworth book How to Be Topp by Geoffrey Willans. Hogwarts school was voted as the 36th best Scottish educational establishment in a 2008 online ranking, outranking Edinburgh's Loretto School. According to a director of the Independent Schools Network Rankings, it was added to the schools listing "for fun" and was then voted on.
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is the British wizarding school, located in the Scottish Highlands. It accepts magical students from Great Britain and Ireland for enrolment. It is a state-owned school funded by the Ministry of Magic. The precise location of the school can never be uncovered because it was rendered Unplottable. To Muggles, the school looks like an old abandoned castle. Similarly, most wizarding schools locations are protected in order to prevent their ways of teaching being revealed, as well as protect the students and schools themselves from any harm.
Butterbeer was a popular wizarding beverage described as tasting "a little bit like less-sickly butterscotch". It was served at numerous locations in the wizarding world and had a very slight alcoholic content. Students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry would often buy it when visiting Hogsmeade. Butterbeer was served cold in bottles and hot in "foaming tankards."In Hogsmeade, it's sold at The Three Broomsticks and The Hog's Head.
French onion soup
French onion soup (French: soupe à l’oignon ) is a type of soup usually based on meat stock and onions, and often served gratinéed with croutons and cheese on top of a large piece of bread. Although ancient in origin, the dish underwent a resurgence of popularity in the 1960s in the United States due to a greater interest in French cuisine. French onion soup is usually served as a starter.
Hogwarts Steak and kidney pie
Steak and kidney pie is a British dish with a filling of diced beef and kidneys in a thick sauce. Steak and kidney pie was served at dinnertime at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on 12 September 1991 and in September 1995. Steak and kidney was sold as a meal specialty at the Leaky Cauldron. It was mentioned on a meal sign.
This classic dish is often served at Hogwarts feasts, so obviously it's got to be good. In fact, all of the Hogwarts feasts sound amazing... though the fact that it's cooked with house-elf labor disqualifies it from rising higher on the list (though Dumbledore does eventually pay Dobby, so if it's made by Dobby, yay).
A knickerbocker glory is a layered ice cream sundae that is served in a large tall conical glass, and to be eaten with a distinctive long spoon, particularly in the British Isles.
