Fans of the Harry Potter series are some of the most creative people out there but this newest creation is an origin story on Voldemort.
Lord Voldemort is not a guy that many of us see compassion towards. And for good reason. He killed the Potters, among countless others, and he is generally just an evil man. But this new trailer for a fan made series as a lot of fans questioning their newfound love of the villain.
Voldemort: Origins of the Heir follows Tom Marvolo Riddle after he graduated from Hogwarts. Tom quits his job at Borgin and Burkes and sets out to create his first horcrux. But the best part? The heir of Gryffindor is the one who is going to try and stop him.
Okay, that’s not the best part but I’m a Gryffindor to, to me, that’s the coolest thing. But really, it is so clever and fascinating to see. We only know Tom from the eyes of those around him and as Voldemort already. We don’t really know what led him to where he ended up.
So even if this is just a fan creation, it is still amazingly shot and put together. A series that definitely leaves most of us feeling like we suddenly want to be a part of it.
The trailer does wonders for fans. It has us on the edge of our seats and ready for whatever this amazing series is going to have in store for us. And who knows, maybe we’ll all see Voldemort in a different way now.
I mean, we’re not going to suddenly have sympathy for the man but at least this will shine a light on the villain.
While we don’t know much about Voldemort: Origins of the Heir, we do know this: We’re onboard.
