In the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is required reading for Hogwarts students to learn about magical creatures — many of which cropped up throughout the Harry Potter series. Redmayne narrates the catalogue of creatures, from Golden Snidgets to Acromantula in the audiobook.

Previously, Lee Child’s Night School held the record for most preordered audiobook, MarketWatch reported.
