Harry Potter fans are losing their minds over this ridiculously awesome fan made film teaser which debuted on YouTube this past Sunday.
The teaser is for Voldemort: Origins of the Heir and the film looks amazing! The film looks so amazing, in fact, that fans are in complete shock to find out that this is not an official Harry Potter film. In fact, it is a fan made, not for profit, production by an indie production company called Tryangle Films.
According to their website, “Voldemort: Origins of the Heir” is a non-profit fan film, inspired by the Harry Potter universe. The idea was born while re-reading the sixth book of the saga, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. We wondered:
What made Tom Riddle become Voldemort? What happened in those years, and what really went down at Hogwarts when he came back? There are some clues in the books which have not been transposed at all in the movies, but a lot goes unspoken. This is the story we want to tell: the rise of the Dark Lord before Harry Potter and his first demise.”
This teaser has everything that a Harry Potter blockbuster success would have; amazing visual effects, an intriguing and interesting storyline, familiar settings and, of course, it’s taking places omelet within the Harry Potter world.
The film will take an look at the early years of Tom Marvolo Riddle, before he transforms into “he who must not be named” (aka. Voldemort) as seen through the eyes of Grisha Mac Laggen (the heir of Gryffindor).
For an “unofficial” film, the footage really is quite remarkable. But don’t just take our word for it. Check out the stunning teaser below.
