''A Very Potter Musical'' was performed at the University of Michigan from [[9 April|9]]-[[11 April]], [[2000s|2009]]. It was subsequently posted to the video upload site YouTube in late [[June]], where it obtained millions of hits, being considered on the of 10 Best Viral Videos of 2009 by Entertainment Weekly. Unfortunately, after its initial release on YouTube it had to be taken down due to copyright complaints. But luckily after much discussion it was re-uploaded. Fans have noticed that although the first part of the musical may have over 9 million views, these views tend to go down as the musical progresses. The final part of the musical (Act 2 part 9) has only received 1.7 million views, although this is still an exceptional amount of views.

''A Very Potter Senior Year'', the third and final installment in Starkid's Harry Potter Musical Parody Series, premiered at LeakyCon 2012 in Chicago.  It was uncertain whether or not the show would happen due to Darren Criss's time constraints with the show Glee, but they were able to gather almost all of the previous Starkid actors, including Darren, for one performance.  Rather than a full show, it was a staged reading; the actors still had their books.  In December 2012, Starkid released the free script and the soundtrack to the show on [http://starkid.annarbortshirtcompany.com/t/production/avp3d-avpsy their online store].  An announcement video says that the full read-through will be posted to YouTube in 2013. The soundtrack released did not feature Darren Criss as Harry, due to Glee contracts stating he is not allowed to sell his voice for any non-Glee related things, and instead had a replacement Harry. Evanna Lynch was also not featrued on the album. A single, released for free as to not break the terms of the Glee contract, called ''When I Was, ''was released featuring Darren Criss.
