WATCH: New Voldemort fan film is a true gem…

February 16th, 2018 by Marc Comments

There are a few franchises that inspire true fandom… we mean real, honest to goodness, love – Star Wars, Bond, Pokemon (?) and Harry Potter.

And, a a result of that, a new fan movie has decided to chronicle the life of Tom Riddle, the man who would become Harry Potter’s arch nemesis, Voldemort.

And they have done an admirable job… check it out below; it’s a lot of fun to see it reference events we know from the books as well as details they work of for themselves about how Riddle became the most notorious wizard in history.

What made Tom Riddle become Voldemort? What happened in those years, and what really went down at Hogwarts when he came back? There are some clues in the books which have not been transposed at all in the movies, but a lot goes unspoken. This is the story we want to tell: the rise of the Dark Lord before Harry Potter and his first demise.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
