An American Hogwarts? Where?

There's a new "Harry Potter" spinoff film arriving in theaters next year, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," starring Eddie Redmayne, and it turns out there's an American school of wizardry in this fantastical, fictional world.

Author J.K. Rowling been coy about saying exactly where the school is.

Newt Scamander, the fictional author of "Fantastic Beasts" who will be portrayed by Redmayne, ends up in New York in the "Harry Potter" series, and this prompted fans to ask if the school would also be in the Big Apple.

The "Harry Potter" and "Fantastic Beasts" author responded over Twitter with a few details.

Turns out, the school also has relevance to Native American culture and its name has an "immigrant origin."

Rowling is quick to keep the tribal names to herself, though.

The Southwest? The Northeast? Oklahoma? Stay tuned for more information. The film opens Nov. 18, 2016.
