JKR on TwitterNo, no, no. There won't be Newt Scamander novels. Only movies. Calm down, there!
If there are, then I hope that they are properly novelized. Script -> Novel adaptation has to be as aggressive as Novel -> Script adaptation if it wants to tell the same story. There are as many cinematic story-telling devices that mean nothing on page as there are literary ones that do not work on screen.

Still, the movie did a perfectly good job of telling its story.

(It doubles for The Hobbit, too!)
If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don't put it there. - A. P. Chekhov, Gurlyand's Reminiscences, and who knew why the Dog was long before the Shack!
