JK Rowling Says There Will Be An American Hogwarts In 'Potter' Spinoff
JK Rowling is writing the screenplay for the "Harry Potter" spinoff film, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."
A few days ago, she began teasing some of the script's details on Twitter.
Rowling alluded to an American version of Hogwarts that may be a part of the new movie.
But she wouldn't give the name of the school or say where in America it would be located.
However, she did mention the school has its foundation in both "immigrant" and "indigenous" magic.
Rowling also said we won't actually see the school in the film, but we will meet some of its alumni.
It's all pretty vague at the moment, but it's a start.
Check out Rowling's tweets.
