With the trilogy of Harry Potter-spinoffs on their way, Potterheads are positively salivating over every tidbit of news released by J. K. Rowling, Warner Bros., or any facet of the production of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.Earlier this month, Rowling tweeted these enigmatic sentences:
Since then, Twitter user @EmyBemy2 solved the anagram for: “Newt Scamander only meant to stay in New York for a few hours…” Potterheads rejoiced at even this small hint at the plot of the first film in the projected trilogy, and Rowling has since confirmed the solution.
Newt only meant to stay in New York for a few hours. Circumstances ensured that he remained… for the length of a movie, anyway. X
