Is Harry Potter returning? J.K. Rowling’s recent Twitter activity on Monday garnered questions about the return of her boy wizard.
The famous author’s first bizarre tweet read, “Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense.”

Social media tackled this enigmatic tweet and theories spread quickly. A blogger at Reddit rearranged her tweet as “Harry returns. Won’t say any details now. A week off. No comment.”
However, Rowling deflated the Harry Potter hype by tweeting several updates on Tuesday.
Rowling’s next tweet read, “Newt Scamander’s History of New York Fauna: One town, my tale.” A few other tweets poked fun at the theorists, with hint tweets marked in hashtags.
The 49-year-old author seems determined to finish her screenplay to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a spin-off trilogy from her Hogwarts world. No confirmation of actors or actresses have been revealed.
25-year-old actor Daniel Radcliffe confirmed he is finished playing the boy wizard while actress Emma Watson is open to a cameo in any new Rowling-related movies.
#helpfulhint The solution is the first sentence of a synopsis of Newt's story. It isn't part of the script, but sets the scene.

Very few cunning authors would leave an anagram to decipher on social media . Rowling’s known for anagrams in the Harry Potter series like Lord Voldemort’s name and the Mirror of Erised.
Rowling raised the stakes in a 2013 surprise. A novel titled “The Cuckoo’s Calling” was published, but hardly mentioned in the public’s eye. Rowling later revealed she published the book under the pen name Robert Galbraith.
This past July, Rowling posted a short story based on an older Harry Potter. She published the story on the fan website Pottermore. Rumors circulated that she had actually inserted an excerpt from a future book.
A number of fans still want to believe. Harry Potter fans young and old may have to wait patiently with Rowling if the Potter’s alleged return goes beyond next week.[Photo Credit: Flicker]
