This is a behind-the-scenes audio documentary, recorded on the set of the movie Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

"This film is a different beast" - Eddie Redmayne

Only available in audio, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – Makers, Mysteries and Magic lifts the lid on the moviemaking secrets behind the latest instalment in J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts series. Narrator Dan Fogler (who plays No-Maj Jacob Kowalski) will guide you through the process of creating the magical, on-screen world and explore the story, themes and characters of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Over 100 hours of interviews with the cast and crew have been used to create this unique audio adventure that's sure to be loved by fans of film-making and the Wizarding World. Across its nine chapters, you will explore themes such as what's next for Newt Scamander, whether we've seen every side of Albus Dumbledore, what makes Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald so dangerous, and what connects the worlds of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts.

With unrivalled access to the film's cast, directors, producers and makers, hear what it takes to build 1927 Paris on a lot just outside London, discover what influenced the design of the Elder Wand, meet the individuals who constructed iconic Wizarding World locations including Hogwarts' Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom - and mastered the craft and artistry required to fill it with authenticity and excitement.

With contributions from actors including Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore), Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), director David Yates and producer David Heyman.

Give your eyes a rest and your ears a treat. Take a trip behind the scenes of the Wizarding World like never before.
