A recent trailer for a forthcoming Harry Potter fan film has made ts way around the web, bringing attention to the project that suffered a cancelled campaign on Kickstarter. But despite some initial concerns from Warner Bros., fans can still expect to see Voldemort: Origins Of The Heir in the near future.
The filmmakers of the production at Tryangle Films revealed Warner Bros. contacted them during the Kickstarter campaign. They wouldn’t go into details about the specifics, but they revealed the company allowed them to continue making their movie with the characters under a major condition.
“The only thing we can say is that they let us proceed with the film, in a non profit way, obviously,” director Gianmaria Pezzato wrote to Polygon in an email.
The short film chronicles the life of Tom Marvolo Riddle, who would eventually become Harry Potter’s arch nemesis Lord Voldemort.
The trailer made waves when it began being spread online due to its high production values and great special effects. It looks as if it were made by the production teams behind the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies.
The fact that Warner Bros is allowing the film continue should be encouraging to fans. While it’s obviously not from the mind of J.K. Rowling and thus isn’t canon, it’s still amazing to see the people she inspired bring their own interpretations to series lore.
The Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them series will unlikely pick up on this thread considering they take place in the United States and focus on Gellert Grindelwald, another evil wizard, in the role of villain.
Tryangle Films is slated to start post-production work on Voldemort: Origins Of The Heir in the coming months with the hopes to release it for free online before the end of the year.
