I love the internet. I always seem to find the coolest links, photos and videos, but I think this might be my favorite thing ever (okay, considering I have a lot of favorite things, we’ll call it my favorite this week). Some extremely talented Harry Potter fans got together and created their own movie: Auror’s Tale.
Now these are not just some kids with iPhones video’ing poorly constructed scenes from Harry Potter. This is a top-notch well-acted and well-scored original story. The premise is as follows:
“New York City is a battlefield. Dark magic rules the underworld. The NYC Department of Magical Law Enforcement (DMLE) is the only line of defense. Hawthorne is the force’s newest recruit and the dark criminals’ latest threat. Plunging into the nightmare that his occupation offers, he makes quick enemies of the most depraved wizard gang in America: the ever violent, ever twisted Hellhounds. Auror’s Tale chronicles Hawthorne’s tempestuous adventures.”
Now before J.K. Rowling gets all upset and tries to take this down, I hope you get to see this wonderful trailer for Auror’s Tale. The film will be released as a 10-part episodic web series via its YouTube Channel.
