Harry Potter fans are bursting at the seams to share what they saw during “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” screenings across the country on Sunday, but have vowed to #ProtectTheSecrets.

Early reaction on social media to the “Fantastic Beasts” sequel was overwhelmingly ecstatic following fan screenings, with many speculating what happens next, but they’re keeping their lips buttoned (for now), as they’ve received buttons that read #ProtectTheSecrets above the Deathly Hallows symbol and have been sworn to secrecy.

Following the Los Angeles screening, the cast and crew held a Q&A outside of Harry Potter World in Universal Studios. Eddie Redmayne even shared a video begging fans to not leak the secrets of the “Fantastic Beasts” sequel, which he says is filled with Easter Eggs and juicy, spoiler details.

Even Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is finding it difficult to keep the lid on secrets and speculations, tweeting this comment teasing “CERTAIN THINGS” to await in future installments of the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise.

What does that mean? Well, that’s anyone’s guess. Though for anyone wildly speculating on Reddit, here’s Harry ominously saying the phrase “certain things” in “Chamber of Secrets.”

While originally set up as a spinoff series from the British Harry Potter universe now set in America, the sequel to the first “Fantastic Beasts” introduces a young Albus Dumbledore played by Jude Law, the Deathly Hallows symbol has been plastered all over advertisements for the film, and a recent trailer even revealed that we would meet a woman who can transfigure into a snake who fans quickly noted shares the same name with Lord Voldemort’s pet snake in the Harry Potter films.

Here are a few other fans having fun with Rowling’s “certain things” proclamation.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” opens Nov. 16 in theaters.
