Insight Editions Acquires Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Film Publishing Program Through Warner Bros. Consumer Products

March 29, 2016 (San Rafael, CA)—In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Insight Editions has acquired rights to a global publishing program for the highly anticipated film series Fantastic Beasts. The program, which launches in Fall 2016, will include deluxe novelty and interactive books across a variety of formats.

For the last seven years, Insight Editions has published a wide range of books and collectible products for the Harry Potter franchise, including the Monster Book of Monsters prop replica (featuring a limited edition of Harry Potter: The Creature Vault), Harry Potter: A Pop-Up Book, and several other titles and formats released in over twenty-five languages worldwide.

“Insight is thrilled to continue working with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, extending our current line of Harry Potter film-related products to include Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” said Insight Editions publisher and CEO, Raoul Goff. “The Fantastic Beasts line will have a little something for everybody and will feature all of the hallmarks of quality and creativity that fans have come to expect from the Harry Potter film publishing program.”

In addition to products they have published themselves, Insight Editions has created multiple books for the Harry Potter film franchise that have been published in the US through HarperCollins and Scholastic—including the New York Times bestsellers Harry Potter: Film Wizardry, Harry Potter: Page to Screen, and Harry Potter Coloring Book.

“Our partnerships, both in the US and internationally, have become a cornerstone of the success of our Harry Potter film publishing,” said Goff. “We look forward to creating an equally strong global program for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for years to come.”

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is slated for worldwide release in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX on November 18, 2016. Specific announcements on Insight Editions product offerings are planned throughout 2016.
