WATCH: Warner Bros. OKs conditional release of Harry Potter fan film about Voldemort

/ 01:57 PM January 17, 2018

The fan-made film about the origins of Harry Potter’s nemesis, Voldemort, has been released online and can be viewed freely via YouTube.

Made by Italian production house Tryangle Films, “Voldemort: Origins of the Heir” has a runtime of around 50 minutes.


Originally a Kickstarter campaign, the film had received a take-down notice from Warner Bros., indefinitely putting production on hold.


The Independent reported that the two parties found common ground, with Warner Bros. giving its blessing only if the film would be released for free.

“Origins of the Heir” was initially shot in Italian. The release, however, has been dubbed in English with subtitles available in other languages.

Inspiration for the movie came from JK Rowling’s sixth Harry Potter novel, “The Half-Blood Prince.” Director Gianmaria Pezzato said the film had been created to further explore Tom Marvolo Riddle’s past–what went on in Riddle’s past that made him into Voldemort.

“We wondered, ‘What made Tom Riddle become Voldemort?’” said Pezzato. “What happened in those years, and what really went down at Hogwarts when he came back?”

Pezzato also alludes to various clues sprinkled throughout the book series. The film is an attempt to bring all those clues into a single cohesive narrative. Alfred Bayle /ra
