Who is the Dark Lord? The fan film Voldemort: Origins of the Heir will soon answer that.

Check out this teaser for the soon to be Harry Potter fan film Voldemort: Origins of the Heir from Tryangle Films. Find it below along with some screenshots.

“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.

Voldemort: Origins of the Heir is an unofficial fan-made prequel to the Harry Potter films. The film was created by Gianmaria Pezzato and Stefano Prestia.

The film stars Stefano Rossi and Davide Ellana as Tom Marvolo Riddle/Lord Voldemort and Maddalena Orcali as Grisha McLaggen. The cast also includes Andrea Baglio, Andrea Deanesi, Aurora Moroni, Andrea Bonfanti, Gelsomina Bassetti, Alessio Dalla Costa and Daniele Decarli.

The film has apparently gotten some sort of blessing according to Gianmaria Pezzato who stated “The only thing we can say is that they let us proceed with the film, in a non-profit way, obviously.”.

No official release date has been set for Voldemort: Origins of the Heir…but we will definitely be keeping you posted. So far all we know is Foll of 2017. I know you have to be excited for this if you are a Harry Potter fan.
