Get excited, Harry Potter fans, because we’ve got great book news for you! Pottermore will publish a new edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them this year!

On Thursday, Pottermore announced the book news saying that the new version will be available on March 14, 2017.

What’s new in this version? Well, a few things actually!

For starters, the new Fantastic book will have a forward from Rowling written as Magizoologist Newt Scamander.

It will also include new beasts (yay!), new line illustrations from Tomislay Tomic and a brand-new cover designed by Olly Moss — he did all of the most recent Harry Potter eBook covers, so you know it’ll be good.

According to Pottermore, proceeds from these book sales will help benefit Comic Relief and Rowling’s own charity, Lumos.

The new edition will “bring the original classic up to date with new content that reflects the exciting developments in her Wizarding World, with the release of the movie event of 2016, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which was inspired by the original edition of the book,” the site explained.
