Fan-Made HARRY POTTER Prequel Explores Voldemort’s Origin Story

My favorite Harry Potter novel is the sixth in the series, The Half-Blood Prince, and while that also happens to be my favorite film in the franchise, I’ve always been disappointed by how many flashbacks to He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named weren’t included from the book. Well, I must have had a swig of Felix Felicis today, because this amazing new trailer for an upcoming fan-made prequel, Voldemort: Origins of the Heir, looks like it could be the young Tom Riddle film I always wanted.

This is the first teaser (which we came across at IndieWire) for the movie currently being filmed by the production company TRYANGLE, and it will explore “the early life of Voldemort, powerful dark wizard from the Harry Potter saga, and all the reasons that made his name so well-known and feared among his peers.” Despite being just a brief glimpse, it has the look and feel of a big budget movie.

It looks like the non-profit film will explore the time period when Tom Marvolo Riddle had left Hogwarts and was on a murder spree to acquire famous magical artifacts to turn into many Horcruxes, source material that comes from the actual novels. As for the heroine of the movie who is narrating the trailer, it doesn’t appear that Grisha McLaggen already exists in J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world. However, it’s a good bet she’s related to Cormac McLaggen from the novels.

You can learn more about the movie at the film’s official website, which also reveals that dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald will also appear in the movie.

Yup, definitely drank some Felix Felicis.
