导读:《神奇动物在哪里2》的电影尚未上映,勤奋填坑的罗琳阿姨就表示,自己已经开始创作第三部的剧本啦!不过她也承认,写剧本可比写小说难多了……

Author J.K. Rowling released the first Harry Potter book in 1997, featuring a young wizard who would go on to win the hearts of millions of readers. But although the book series came to an end in 2007, the magical world featured in it still lives on.
1997年,作家J.K.罗琳出版了“哈利·波特”系列书籍的第一部,书中描写的小巫师赢得了数百万读者的喜爱。而尽管“哈利·波特”系列已于2007完结,但罗琳笔下的魔法世界仍继续存在。

On May 30, the 52-year-old Briton posted on her official blog that she was working on the screenplay for the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3, which tells the story of British “magizoologist” Newt Scamander. The film is set to come out in 2020.
5月30日,这位52岁的英国作家在其官方博客上宣布,自己正在创作电影《神奇动物在哪里3》的剧本,讲述英国“神奇动物学家”纽特·斯卡曼德的故事。这部电影计划将于2020年上映。

But what may surprise fans the most is the fact that Rowling has admitted how difficult writing the first two Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movies was for her.
而让不少书迷感到最为惊讶的,或许是罗琳自曝创作“神奇动物在哪里”前两部的电影剧本难度很大。

“I found screenwriting different from novel writing and very challenging. Basically, I learned how to write a screenplay as I went along,” she wrote on her blog. However, seeing the finished movies left Rowling feeling “in love with the process all over again”, making the hard work completely worth it.
“我发现写剧本和写小说完全不同,很有挑战性。我基本上都是一边创作一边学习如何写剧本,”罗琳在她的博客上写道。然而,在看完电影成片之后,罗琳觉得自己“再次爱上了这一创作过程”,所有的辛苦都是值得的。
