Some Harry Potter fans wanted to know how Voldemort got to be his evil self – so they decided to make their own film.
The Muggles behind Voldemort: Origins of the Heir started a Kickstarter campaign for the movie last year. After discussions with Warner Brothers, the filmmakers say they have now reached an agreement that will allow their production to be released on YouTube this fall.
So they just released a trailer for the film, in which a Griffindor alum named Grish MacLaggen investigates whether dark magic was behind the murder of a Hufflepuffer. Could Tom Marvolo Riddle have been responsible?
Looks like they’re pretty good with special effects!
