'Harry Potter' Fan Film Prequel Looks Amazing!
If you are a Harry Potter fan, well you need to know about this!
A group of superfans decided to make their own original story, and it's unbelievably professional.
In a recent interview the creators talked about what the movie will focus on:
"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."
The movie has been in the works since 2016. On their website, they write: "'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.
You may be wondering how they're managing to get away with this in terms of copyright infringement. Well, originally they were getting money for the project through Kickstarter, however Warner Bros. issued a takedown. However on their Facebook page they replied to a question about Copyright and they replied:
"This is a fan-made project. The film will be available for free on our YouTube channel by the end of 2017. And for what concerns the copyright, we have an agreement with Warner Bros, so no worries."
Sounds like they sorted something good and i mean it's free!! Can't wait to watch it!
