It looks like the spin-offs just keep on coming, first there was Fantastic Beasts, next, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. This time, an antagonist is getting the spotlight.
Origins of The Heir is an unofficial prequel focusing on ‘he who must not be named’ and it’s only going to be released on Youtube.
The reason for that? It’s not Warner Bros who’s behind the project, Tryangle Films is a start up that raised funds for ‘Origins of The Heir’ on a kickstarted page. Although they got the O.K. from WB, there won’t be a worldwide box office release.
The movie will uncover how Tom Marvolo Riddle goes from a disturbed orphan wizard to the villain Lord Voldemort.
Director Gianmaria Pezzato says that now the legal stuff is out of the way, the movie should be released by the end of the year.
Take a look at the official trailer below.
