The sequel to “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is not due to hit theaters until 2018, but the series’ creator and screenwriter J.K. Rowling apparently already has the official, printed script for the film in her hands.
The writer posted a photo of the script –or at least part of it — on her official Twitter feed late on Monday. Sadly, the photo doesn’t offer any new insights into the sequel beyond what we already know –– there isn’t even a title visible, just J.K.’s writing credit and some text from the Warner Bros.’s confidentiality clause.

Perhaps the only thing we can infer from this shot is that whatever the film will be called eventually, it is probably not going to be titled “Fantastic Beasts, and Where to Find Them 2.”
In the meantime, fans of the Potterverse will have to continue to scour the first movie for more clues, although they will have to wait until March 7 for the film’s digital release on Amazon Video and iTunes, and March 28 for the DVD and Blu-ray release to do so at home.
Directed by David Yates from a script by J.K. Rowling, the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” sequel is set to star Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Zoë Kravitz, and Ezra Miller and will arrive in cinemas worldwide on November 16, 2018.
