J.K. Rowling took to Twitter recently to tease Potter fans with a mysterious and cryptic tweet.
Naturally, things escalated pretty quickly, with guesses as to what this anagram could mean ranging from intriguing….
Until one intrepid detective cracked the case:
It was revealed that this is the first line of the synopsis for Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which is currently in development with a projected release date of 18 November 2016. For the moment this tease is the closest we have come to solid detail on the project’s plot since the initial announcement of the film which Rowling herself is writing the screenplay for.
Fingers crossed we’ll get some further details soon, with David Yates in talks to direct.

Gosh, I hate Twitter…
It certainly has that effect on some people! I personally feel that it’s a great way for people to engage and join in discussion with like minded people, and to interact with people that otherwise they wouldn’t be able to. J.K Rowling for example is known to tweet cryptic anagrams (such as she did here) to her ‘followers’ to provide a little bit of tease as to what she’s working on. Before you know it people who have never previously spoken are working together to try and crack the code, which I think is pretty incredible.
I’m also just a sucker for anything Harry Potter, so was fully on board with this particular mystery, hoping for some more meaty details on the film in the near future though 🙂
