The internet was taken by storm over the last couple of days thanks to some tweets J.K. Rowling wrote on Monday.
Rowling pointed out that the tweet was an anagram and encouraged her fans to solve the riddle for a clue about her latest Wizarding World project, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.
This is the tweet she shared on her account:
Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense.

Fans worked hard to figure out what it was saying. One Reddit user found the following message in the tweet: However, Rowling revealed the true answer yesterday on her account.
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

We already knew that a bit of ‘Fantastic Beasts’ would be set in New York, but it sounds like it might be playing a large part as a setting in the film. Regardless, we’re all excited to see what she has up her sleeve!
Before tweeting the anagram, she mentioned that she was busy at work on a novel, the screenplay to ‘Fantastic Beasts’, as well as some projects with the charity she founded, Lumos. She’s certainly busy, but we expect we’ll hear a lot more about ‘Fantastic Beasts’ in the coming year.
