Filed Under: Exclusive, Fantastic Beasts Film, Interview // Nov 18 2016

Explore J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World further with this new interactive “Fantastic Beasts” companion book, “The Case of Beasts” by Mark Salisbury! The book features filmmaking secrets, “Fantastic Beasts” photography and artwork, behind-the-scenes stories from cast and crew, plus, removable reproductions of props and paper ephemera from the movie designed by Fantastic Beasts official graphic designers, MinaLima. It’s a must have for all Potterheads!

Always J.K. Rowling had the honor of interviewing Mark Salisbury! We would like to thank him for this fantastic opportunity and his time!

1.What is your favorite beast and why?

The Niffler, without question. Why? Because he’s so cute. And I’d like one, despite its troublesome tendencies. I also have a soft spot for Pickett, the Bowtruckle Newt keeps in his jacket pocket.

2.What would you say is the biggest difference between the “Fantastic
Beasts and Where to Find Them” series and the “Harry Potter” series?

Period. Characters. Setting. But despite the trip back in time and across the Atlantic, it still feels recognizably the world that JK created in the Harry Potter series and there are nuggets of crossover between the two, not least the reference in Fantastic Beasts to Hogwarts and Albus Dumbledore.

3.Was this book created with the idea to interest Internet- and
video-savvy kids, since so much of their on-line experience now is
interactive as well?

The book’s designers, MinaLima, have worked on all the Potter films as well as designing several previous Potter movie tie-ins, and they’re geniuses at creating books filled with wonderful pull outs and fold outs, making them seem more like interactive (and magical) works of art. The Case of Beasts was designed to be like Newt’s case and I’m dying to see what the finished version looks like, having, till now, only seen final pages as PDFs.

4.Did you visit the “Fantastic Beasts” set? If so, can you tell us about
your favorite part?

Alas, the film had finished shooting the time I was hired, but we were given full access to cast and crew. Plus, we got to read the script.

5.Did you work with J.K. Rowling? If so, what was that like?

She was busy at the time, but did give me exclusive quotes for the book.

6.Which part of the book was your favorite to work on?

I always enjoy asking filmmakers how they do it, so it would have to be the interview process.

“The Case of Beasts” is out November 18th! Order your copy HERE!
