In a recent Twitter Q&A, Harry Potter writer J. K. Rowling—who has so much money, I bet—can you even imagine—look how her skin glows—offered a few hints about certain elements of her upcoming film adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Among the things hinted at: a possible American Hogwarts.

“A possible American Hogwarts,” you’re thinking. “Now I’ve heard everything!” I know, man. Here’s what she said about the chance that Newt Scamander, played by Eddie Redmayne, might run into some wizarding American students:

Rowling also hinted that the school, which is in [not New York], has a name “immigrant” in origin and [something about Native American culture].

This Harry Potter Wikipedia page asserts that Dumbledore’s mother looked “Native American.” If accurate, that would make Albus Dumbledore a gay Native American disabled veteran.

So there you have it!
