J.K. Rowling has dropped the first hints about the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” movie. The story will take place in the Wizarding World from the "Harry Potter" franchise, but it won’t include the boy wizard. Instead, the film will focus on Newt Scamander, a Magizoologist (zoologist with a focus on magical creatures, obviously) in 1920s New York. The “Harry Potter” author tweeted that she was finishing the screenplay and decided to post some clues on Twitter. The tweets immediately excited her fans, but they also left everyone a bit confused.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” was a textbook for the students at Hogwarts, and Rowling published a version of the creature encyclopedia as a short novel. Fans are anxiously awaiting a return to the Wizarding World, even if Harry isn’t there. Needless to say, Rowling's Twitter followers had to jump on the clues to start deciphering immediately.

Theorists decided relatively quickly that "Newt Scamander" and “New York” were definitely answers in the "Fantastic Beasts" anagram.

That still leaves plenty of words to be deciphered. Rowling gave fans a few hints that they were headed in the right direction:

Yet the anagram for the movie is still hard to crack. What Rowling indicated was the closest guess is still missing the letter 'r,' and it seems that most guesses are having trouble using all of the letters Rowling put in the initial anagram. Check out some Twitter users' theories:

Fans are hoping Rowling will reveal the answer soon, but they still have a long wait for the movie. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is scheduled to be released in November 2016, and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” director David Yates is slated to direct.
