I think it's officially a screenplay as it's for a movie (and it says so on the cover page ;) --Ironyak1 (talk) 04:52, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

Mostly chose the name for consistency with the freshly-retitled Cursed Child script book article. What about "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Official Screenplay?" This seems to be the official title, based on the provisional cover art. Starstuff (Owl me!) 04:55, June 8, 2016 (UTC)
The Offical Screenplay works for me. Thanks--Ironyak1 (talk) 05:24, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

Script vs Movie:

I found a few slight differences between the script and the movie, such as during the duel between Grindelwald and the Aurors of MACUSA. In the script, he starts attacking them, in the movie, while he starts walking towards them, clearly intending to resist arrest, they strike first and he ward off their spells with shield charms before attacking.

Nor does the script (thankfully) make any reference to Grindelwald's wand connecting to Tina's/say how their spells collides and tries to cancel each other out or something. It merely says he deflects her spells with ease, says his line and uses the car as a distraction before Disapparating.

I seem to remember a few other minor, differences as well, but can't remember right now, but I could look them up later.

Just wondered whether the script or the movie held the higher canonicy? Ninclow (talk) 08:21, April 19, 2017 (UTC)
