Mysterious J.K. Rowling Tweet Has 'Fantastic Beasts' Fans Freaking Out


J.K. Rowling — British author and master of a fire Twitter burn — is proving she’s also a great hype queen.

On Monday, she tweeted a photo that features a fraction of a script she’s writing (or has already written?) with a super tease-y caption:

What’s in the script isn’t exactly clear, but that seems to be Rowling’s intent.

If one wanted to get all sleuth-y and Hermione-like, the combination of Rowling’s “beastly” caption and words like “Warner Bros.” and “confidential” visible on the script makes it fair to assume that this could possibly be the next installment of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

Especially since Rowling has stated that she intends to make the movies — which are based on Newt Scamander’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” a textbook used by Harry and his peers at Hogwarts — into a five-part series.

Yet, whether this a finished script, one Rowling is still working on, or a “Fantastic Beast” script at all, is as clear as someone under an invisibility cloak.

Due to the ambiguity, her fans have reactions. For instance, some are simply excited that the new script for “Fantastic Beasts” may already be written:

Others, however, were not fans of Rowling’s tease:

And the rest, well, they just had QUESTIONS:

One Twitter user summed it up perfectly when she said this:

But will that ever change? Probably not.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise would be a three-part series. Rowling has stated it will likely span five films.
