Author J.K. Rowling has set some of her fans in a frenzy given her recent revelations on social media. The novelist has shared interesting information on the upcoming movie “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

The “Harry Potter” author took to Twitter on Monday to answer some of the fans’ questions on the recently released trailer for the film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” E! News reported. Cast member Eddie Redmayne unveiled the movie’s promo video during the 2016 MTV Movie Awards. The said clip teased of a connection between the movie’s lead character Newt Scamander, played by Redmayne, and the iconic headmaster in the “Harry Potter” franchise Albus Dumbledore.

A narrator stated in the promo clip that Newt Scamander was kicked out of Hogwarts “for endangering human life with a beast.” However, it appears that one of the teachers at the school “argued strongly” against Newt’s expulsion. Toward the end of the clip, the narrator asked, "Now what makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you, Mr. Scamander?"

The same question was asked of Rowling by Twitter user Kit Scamander. The author responded, “Albus Dumbledore is fond of Newt Scamander for the same reasons that I am fond of Newt Scamander.” She did not disclose further details on why Dumbledore was fond of Scamander.



Rowling also answered Twitter user Potterish’s query if Scamander's expulsion was somehow retracted. The said Twitter user first commented on how avid fans may know that Dumbledore “has come to defend” Scamander, before asking the author if the expulsion was revoked. The author explained that Dumbledore was not as influential as he was in the “Harry Potter” book series given that he was still a “young teacher” at that time. “He wasn't able to revoke expulsions,” Rowling stated on Twitter.



Meanwhile, Rowling has also revealed who her favorite character was in her books on Twitter. The author was asked by Twitter user Adam Mahan to name her favorite character aside from Harry Potter. Rowling simply replied “Dumbledore.”



Fans hoping to see the said wizard in “Fantastic Beasts” would be disappointed since the former headmaster is not set to appear in the first film. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” will hit movie theaters on Nov. 18.
