The Harry Potter fan film Voldemort: Origins of the Heir has been released online for all to watch.
The crowdfunded fan film runs an impressive 53 minutes long, and was made with Warner Bros.’ blessing so long as they agreed to release it for free. And what a release it’s been. The movie was shared just a couple of days ago and is already well on its way to six million views.
You can read more about Voldemort: Origins of the Heir and watch the movie below.
“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 FILM IS A NON-COMMERCIAL FAN FILM MADE BY FANS FOR FANS AND IS NOT ENDORSED BY, AFFILIATED WITH OR ASSOCIATED WITH WARNER BROS. OR J.K. ROWLING.
If you don’t have time to watch the full movie right now but plan to, you can watch a trailer for now to hold you over until you do have time.
