Over the last several months, MuggleNet has been promoting the fan-made film titled Battle of Hogwarts by Sunnymeade Films and director Oliver Hollingdale with teaser trailers and an interview with the director. This coming Friday, MuggleNet will exclusively premiere this short film that depicts the final battle at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from the viewpoint of student witches and wizards as they battle Death Eaters away from the main action of the Harry Potter books and films.
From director Hollingdale:
"It's focusing on different characters. I kind of think - well, we want to kind of put our own spin onto things, so we don't want to copy the Harry Potter films identical. We want to have our own kind of interpretation into it. But I think if you want to slot it somewhere into Deathly Hallows: Part 2, I would say when the point Harry dies - well, think he dies - and then that whole long process, they carry his body up to the castle and by then it's in the early hours of the morning. So that happens elsewhere in the castle because it's such a huge place. There would be numerous battles and other things going on elsewhere."
This fan-made film was created with nothing more than the love and pride of the Harry Potter series as there was no monetary support from fans to create this piece, just the hard work and dedication of a select group of individuals. For this, we salute you.
Be sure to check out the films Facebook Page and Twitter account for the latest updates and information, then tune in to MuggleNet on Friday when we release the completed film.
