Well, well, well. Look who’s here. After all this time. Yes! The Potter fandom is coming out of their graves again since we have something new to look forward to which is not some random fan fiction *ahem ahem cursed child ahem ahem*
Well, it is a fan made piece of work nonetheless but a really, really good one at that
A couple of months ago, a teaser trailer of an indie film started circulating all over social media, titled, ‘Voldemort: Origins of the Heir’.
The teaser didn’t get that much following as it had a wizard cursing Avada Kedavra (as it looked from the green lighting emanating from his wand).
But let’s just first appreciate the young Voldemort that we are going to have in this indie movie
The new trailer, released a couple of days ago, is making waves throughout the fandom as it has some major plots from the whole Potter universe. The trailer majorly contains Hepzibah Smith’s death: the heir of Hufflepuff who had Helga Hufflepuff’s cup which Tom Riddle stole to turn it into one of his Horcruxes.
The trailer also shows the investigation of Hepzibah’s death
The actor playing Tom Riddle looks mostly how Rowling made us imagine him in the book
Also, the movie is mostly about how Tom Morvolo Riddle got converted into Lord Voldemort so that’s something new.
The horcruxes make an appearance in the movie too
And all the murders he did, and all the obstacles he comes across in his hunt are also explored
The one person who’s standing against him is the heir of Gryffindor, Geisha Mac Laggen.
Since she is mentioned as the heir of Gryffindor in the trailer, she’d have the sword as well. Yes! That very sword which Harry and Neville retrieved from the sorting hat.
There’s going to be someone major in the movie as well. *drum roll please* Gellert Grindelwald!
And if there’s Grindelwald, then there surely would be Albus Dumbledore! Yes, so there so much to rejoice for us!
Also, the production company, Tryangle Films is actually putting in so much effort in the movie.
The sets are amazing…
Here’s the actor preparing for his Tom Riddle character by reading the Chamber of Secrets! ^_^
But as long as JK Rowling and Warner Bros. are concerned, they are surely not connected to this production. But the work they have put in, they have got us hooked.
According to the movie’s Facebook page, the project is expected to release in Fall 2017. You can follow updates on the movie here.
Watch the teaser here and get yourself excited about it as well:
But whatever happens in this movie, just REMEMBER, IT’S FAN MADE.
Even if it’s amazing just remember that it has no connection whatsoever with the original story line. Theories will be made, yes, but don’t get so much emotionally invested in it.
Hahaha. Whom am I kidding? We all will get emotionally invested in it and talk about it for years.
