Before Warner Brother's "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" hit the big screens and turned out to become the overall experience we all have been enjoying, it was once a 128-page textbook with academic overtones, converged by Rowling in her first 500-page book episode of an upcoming franchise. Now, find out how English director David Yates brought in the band and translated J.K. Rowling's heavily academic material into a thrilling narrative.

With utterance of the name Newt Scamander, there can't be any mistaking among Harry Potter fans to remembering him as the main author of possibly half of the textbooks at Hogwarts. Such old familiar name is now the hero of this upcoming franchise. Indeed, J.K. Rowling has once again rolled the ball into action.

But looking at "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" as a source material per se, one can already recall the once-hampering challenge it posed to the filmmaker. Translating a plain textbook to a story can be most mind-shattering. But, of course, with Rowling's genius, anything is possible.

Thanks to Rowling, the textbook got a fresh treatment becoming a screenplay. Consequently, some elements and characters were added, Time reported.

The biggest brain with respect to filming the story is director, David Yates' innovative yet loyal treatment of the material. Thus, all came into being the unforgettable characters and a thrilling narrative even non-Harry Potter fans cannot say no to.

For the record, Warner Brothers Studio did not see it coming that the film would earn one of the biggest blockbuster figures in UK this year. Gaining a total of £15,333,000 as per opening report, there is no denying that it would once again preclude an even bigger franchise in the coming years, Independent UK reported.

The inter-textual engagement between J.K. Rowling and director/filmmaker, Yates had undoubtedly glorified Warner Brother's already massive reputation built way back in the Harry Potter series. But what proved most premium in Rowling and Yates' treatment of the material is their artistic decision of allowing the story to veer a little away from the seminal impositions of the material, freeing it to romp all across New York City's Manhattan in the most troubled times of the 1920s, Huffington Post reported.

Not to overstate, but this is perhaps the ultimate secret behind the film's success. As a result, the film caught up with other hits in the U.S. with a solid $9.5 million as of yesterday, Forbes reported.
