Tryangle Films’ Harry Potter fan film, Voldemort: Origins of the Heir, finally released on YouTube over the weekend.

The movie, which runs for just under an hour, is available to watch above and covers Lord Voldemort’s rise from when he was a student at Hogwarts known as Tom Riddle.

Directed by ambitious young director Gianmaria Pezzato and executive produced by Stefano Prestia, the movie faced a takedown notice during its Kickstarter funding process.

After negotiating with Warner Bros., Pezzato and Prestia were able to reach an agreement on the release of the film, which has been clearly marked as an unofficial, non-commercial fan project.

The film follows an original character, Grisha McLaggen, who is the heir of Hogwarts founder, Godric Gryffindor, and plays out in a series of flashbacks that slowly but surely cover Tom Riddle’s transformation into the powerful Lord Voldemort.

Watch above and let us know what you think of the fan film in the comments.
