Post David Heyman on Steve Kloves' involvement as 'Fantastic Beasts' 3 main screenwriter

For those wondering how involved Harry Potter films' screenwriter Steve Kloves was in writing Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, producer David Heyman gave some insight in an on-set video via Warner Bros.

Heyman more or less admitted that Kloves wrote the entire final script, keeping J.K. Rowling's story, spirit, and voice intact for the third installment.

David Heyman: Steve is a brilliant writer. He understands character; his ear for dialogue, and the musicality of his dialogue is something very special. Finding the connective tissue shaping those stories into a two and a half-hour film is a marvel. To retain Jo's [J.K. Rowling] voice and spirit, while so doing, is just a reflection of him being the brilliant writer he is.
The Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore screenplay can be pre-ordered here.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is the newest adventure in the Wizarding World™ created by J.K. Rowling.

Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?

The film features an ensemble cast, including Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), two-time Oscar nominee Jude Law (“Cold Mountain,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley”), Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, William Nadylam, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams, Victoria Yeates, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Fiona Glascott, Katherine Waterston, Maria Fernanda Cândido, Richard Coyle, Oliver Masucci, Valerie Pachner, Aleksandr Kuznetsov, and Mads Mikkelsen.
