We previously reported that a new and updated edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander, a novella by J.K. Rowling (based on one of Harry Potter’s textbooks of the same name) will be released this March. In the same charming manner he portrayed “Newt Scamander” in the film adaptation of the book, Eddie Redmayne has narrated the audiobook edition of the book which will be released on March 14, 2017, along with the updated print and e-book editions.
All the editions will have the new foreword from Mr. Scamander himself, making vague references to his New York visit in 1926 and thereafter. Six beasts have been added with Newt’s other known discoveries. The audiobook will include special effects with Redmayne’s narration.
Thanks to Pottermore, here is a video of Redmayne’s reading excerpts from the book.
