The Harry Potter author has revealed that she has completed her work on the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts 2, but of course she’s keeping tight-lipped about what’s going to happen in the film.

While she can’t tell us anything new, we do know a few things already.

For instance, we know it’ll take the story in a new direction and we’re pretty sure it’ll introduce Newt Scamander’s brother. Jude Law will join the cast as a young Albus Dumbledore and the film will be the second of five planned instalments.

Rowling shared the magical news about the script via Twitter, where she’s well known for delighting fans with extra details and tantalizing teasers about her writing projects.
