*Warning: This article contains Crimes of Grindelwald spoilers!*
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald left many fans in disbelief as they stumbled out of the dark theater. The film’s final moments revealed that Credence is a Dumbledore, which was…well…a LOT to take in. This revelation also brings up a thousand more questions, which fans have constantly been buzzing about all over social media about how the new movies tie into the original series.
Fortunately, thanks to the all-encompassing nature of Twitter, fans can run any of their theories or questions right over to author J.K. Rowling. On Monday, December 10th, Rowling was feeling especially divulgatory.
A fan asked her this question:
@jk_rowling I am SO loving the fantastic beasts films. What can we expect from the next one? Can describe it in 3 words?

And, to Suzanne’s surprise, Rowling answered!
To fans, the news that they’d finally get some answers to the innumerable questions swirling through their heads was incredibly welcome.
aHHHHHHHH (i am v excited!!) ❤️

Some fans took this opportunity to advise the Harry Potter author on what her next movie should contain.
Will the fate of the real Graves be one of those answers?

If you haven't already, please make sure Tina and Nagini have more impact in this one? I love FB and their characters but I wish there could have been more of them in COG 💖

Two years is a long time to wait for some answers.

I would also accept ‘tears are shed’ or ‘things get worse’.

Some Potter-heads, faced with a long couple of years until the promised explanations, turned to madness.

My three words from Crimes of Grindelwald would be "Too many questions!"

As long as the new movie has critters, however, some Twitter users will be happy.
I'm mostly interested in the beasts….I hope we have lots of new critters in the next film, not just answers.

Start your countdown clocks, Hogwarts students! Before you know it, we’ll be back in a theater, finding out the whole truth about Credence and Dumbledore.
