Forget Larry or Fifty Shades; this takes fan fiction to a whole new level.
In the wake of JK Rowling quashing rumors of a possible Harry Potter and the Cursed Child movie, Broad Strokes Productions have finally released Severus Snape and the Marauders, a half-hour fan-made movie that tells the backstory of Harry’s parents.
Broad Strokes said of the film:
“Set in 1978 just after Harry Potter’s father James graduates from Hogwarts, he and his friends Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew celebrate at a bar, contemplating their place in a war they are to soon become a part of. When Severus Snape enters the same bar, knowing the part he might play in the war, James Potter decides to do something about Snape once and for all.”
It’s certainly been a labor of love, with The Mary Sue reporting the team had to raise money through crowdfunding and deal with a mountain of legal red tape.
The result is an extremely assured, action-packed story full of impressive special effects.
In the words of Snape himself: ten points for Gryffindor.Read More
