Consider the new year made, Potter fans! Barnes and Noble announced that it will include exclusive digital content featuring alchemist Nicolas Flamel with its release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

The package will come with the Blu-ray, DVD and digital formats–and the digital copy not only includes Barnes and Noble’s five minutes of exclusive additional footage but also features the extended cut of the film!

The official description of the extra footage reads as follows:

“For the first time, Harry Potter fans get to meet Nicolas Flamel and explore his magical lair that features famous props like the Philosopher’s Stone. Brontis Jodorowsky shares his insights into Nicolas Flamel, a character based on a true historical figure. An alchemist by trade, Flamel in many ways pioneered modern chemistry, conducting experiments in the hopes of turning lead into gold. As a figure in the Wizarding World, Flamel serves as a perfect case study for how J.K. Rowling blends fiction with actual history to create something magical.”

This edition is set to release in stores March 12, 2019 and is now available for pre-order at Barnes and Noble here.
