Voldemort: Origins of The Heir is an unofficial fan made prequel to the Harry Potter series. The film was made by an independent film company named Tryangle, by Gianmaria Pezzato and Stefano Prestia and financed through a crowdfunding scheme.[1]

Warner Bros. intervened with the crowdfunding scheme on grounds of copyright, and the two companies eventually reached an agreement that the film will be a non-profit but professional video project.[1][2]


The film is about Tom Marvolo Riddle and how he became Voldemort, exploring his life following his graduation from Hogwarts, to his job at Borgin and Burkes and his return to Hogwarts in search of becoming the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. It will also explore his rise and downfall in the First Wizarding War.[2]
