Being whisked back into the wizarding world with Fantastic Beasts has made us giddier than a kid who鈥檚 just received their Hogwart鈥檚 acceptance letter. And though we now know the story will span 19 years and lead to the rise of Voldemort, there are still plenty of other questions we have about Newt and his gaggle of wondrous creatures and magical friends. Lucky for us, J.K. Rowling was feeling generous earlier today and gave us two major hints about Fantastic Beasts 2.

Fantastic Beasts

Though we鈥檙e still enjoying the idyllic aftermath of witnessing the beginning of this new magical chapter of the wizarding world, others are eager to keep the story going and find out what happens next. When a fan asked if Newt was still the main character in the second film, J.K.鈥檚 answer was simple and definitive鈥

This is totally exciting news for anyone (which was pretty much everyone) who was charmed by the delightfully bumbling Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne, of course).

But there was even more exciting news from the wizard creator herself, when Rowling was asked about Leta Lestrange and when we鈥檇 finally get to meet her鈥

Woo! Eee! Yay! For those who don鈥檛 know, Leta is (or was) Newt鈥檚 school crush back in the UK. Though she failed to appear in the first movie (except for pics), her character was definitely made known. That鈥檚 why it鈥檚 so awesome to find out that we won鈥檛 have to wait long to see her in action.

What makes it even more amazing is that Zo毛 Kravitz will be stepping into the role, even showing up to walk the red carpet for the first movie a couple of weeks back in a stunning web-like gown and her white-blonde hair pulled back into a perfect low bun.

鈥淟eta Lestrange comes into the second movie,鈥 director David Yates confirmed to Cinema Blend, adding, 鈥淪he鈥檚 quite complicated and damaged and confused, and Newt is absolutely still in love with her, so she has a kind of power over him, and she, yeah, she鈥檚 a kind of tragic figure, so we will see a bit more of her in the second movie.鈥 We can鈥檛 wait!
