“Could You Survive the Movies?” New Episode Explores Surviving “Harry Potter” Without Magic

Would mere Muggles be able to survive in the wizarding world? This is an exciting topic to explore – we’ve seen Jacob Kowalski survive alongside his wizarding friends Newt Scamander and Tina Goldstein in Fantastic Beasts, but what if you’re a Muggle in the wizarding world with no magic at your disposal? What would you do to ensure that you’re not Lord Voldemort’s or Grindelwald’s next victim? This fun (and slightly scary) scenario is explored in the latest episode of Could You Survive the Movies?

This Daytime Emmy Award-winning YouTube Originals series hosted by Jake Roper (Vsauce3 on YouTube) takes audience members on an exciting journey into the world of movies, exploring whether it’s possible to survive some of the most dangerous events you see in Hollywood’s most iconic films. The latest episode explores the world of Harry Potter and shows Roper embodying a version of Harry losing his magical powers while facing a Voldemort-esque wizard who steals his victims’ magic.

With a wand that has become nothing more than a piece of wood, Roper has to find alternative ways to defeat evil, and he turns to science to help him re-create some of the weapons available to wizardkind. He gets pretty creative, making a “wand” using electrical energy, developing his own version of an invisibility cloak using radiant energy, and trying to fly using magnetic energy. Those who love science as much as they love Harry Potter will most certainly enjoy this episode, and you’ll definitely learn a thing or two.

Could You Survive Harry Potter? is now available to stream on YouTube. Give it a watch below and let us know what you think of Roper’s tactics to re-create magic using science.

Growing up, I was a massive fan of Harry Potter and my love for the stories grew as I got older. It’s no surprise then that I love writing about all things Potter related. When I’m not writing about all the magic, you’ll find me reading (probably something Harry Potter related), listening to music, or writing some songs.
