On Sunday, J.K. Rowling teased her Twitter followers with a message that hinted she might be putting the final final touches on her screenplay, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, the Harry Potter spinoff about the fictional (sadly) author Newt Scamander.

Does this mean the film might go into production soon? David Yates, who directed the last four Potter films, is attached to the Fantastic Beasts project, and as ComicBooks.com posits, this could mean we'll start to hear some casting news soon and maybe some confirmation about that rumored November 18, 2016 release date.

But Rowling didn't stop there. Amused by the reaction to her tweet, she posted a mysterious message, leading up to it with "See, now I'm tempted to post a riddle or an anagram. Must resist temptation... must work..."

People were confunded. WHAT DOES IT MEAAAAAAANNNNNN?! Does Newt Scamander speak in old English? In Ewok language? Is this movie a Harry Potter-Braveheart mash-up? Or is it, you know, an anagram. Well, pass me some Amortentia, and call me Lavender Brown, because one of Rowling's followers might have solved part of the riddle and I am FEELING THINGS about it.

Besides giving her coy "much warmer" response, she just tweeted another hint:

We already know Fantastic Beasts is going to be a trilogy, set in New York, and magizoologist Newt Scamander's story will take place in the 1920s, seven decades before the Harry Potter shenanigans happened. But...that's about it. So, J.K. Rowling, please tell us more! You're Avada Kedavra-ing us over here.
