There have been a ton of reports lately about the therapeutic benefits of adult coloring books. Psychologists are prescribing them to stressed out patients and they’re flying off the shelves at bookstores. If you’d like to calm your rattled nerves by coloring in a picture of Hedwig or Buckbeak, this news is going to make you happy. Today EW posted some new exclusive images from the upcoming Harry Potter Magical Creatures Coloring Book.
Wash away your troubles by coloring in a Thestral with purple pencil or give that Centaur a gorgeous pink and orange hairdo. You know you’ve always thought Firenze would look better with a bit more color in his ‘do. This is likely to be the first of many tie-ins for the upcoming Harry Potter-world film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. which will hit theaters on November 18, 2016. Fans have been speculating about which creatures from the Wizarding World we’re actually going to see in the film. Will there be Three-Headed Dogs? Hungarian Horntails? Grindylows? Kneazles? Flobberworms? It’s certainly possible that this book is going to give us clues to what’s coming. Then, of course, there is the actual source material for the film, J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Harry Potter Magical Creatures Coloring Book will hit store shelves on January 26, so get those colored pencils ready! Check out a lovely image from the new coloring book above, then head to EW for even more. (Sorry, we know you’re still all broken up about Hedwig.)
