JK Rowling sent fans into a frenzy yesterday after kidding about a new Harry Potter prequel being in the works. 


The author, joining in the hordes of World Book Day-themed tweets, joked there is a story left to be told about Percy Weasley and Narcissa Malfoy. 

A lot of readers just seemed to think the whole idea was just too much

But of course there's plenty of people out there that do want more.

But this tweeter wins all of the prizes:

Rowling is currently working on bringing Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find them to the big screen, with filming on the first film in the trilogy expected to start at the end of this year. Fans have continually backed a campaign to see In The Flesh Star Luke Newberry cast in the main role of Newt Scamander
