Harry Potter fans have been scrambling their brains trying to decode the cryptic tweets of series creator J.K. Rowling, and now they can finally rest. It has been two-days of non-stop guessing and endless retweets, but someone solved the “Harry Potter” author’s riddle.
While teasing that she was writing a new novel, Rowling Tweeted this anagram to fans: “Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense.” Then the frenzy began. No one could figure it out at first, but the author was kind enough to drop a few hints and the answer is as follows:
“Newt only meant to stay in New York for a few hours,” the decoded anagram officially reads. This is the first major hint towards the new Harry Potter spin-off film “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.”
“The solution is the first sentence of a synopsis of Newt’s story. It isn’t part of the script, but sets the scene,” Rowling tweeted this morning to put the questions to bed. If you are one of the millions and millions of fans excited for the new film, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” opens in theaters on November 18, 2016.
