First things first, this will be an unofficial fan-made prequel to the Potter series. Initially rejected by Warner Bros due to copyright infringement, an agreement has been reached to where they’re allowed to release the film as a non-profit project instead. It has been able to come to the forefront due to a method known as crowdfunding, this is when members of the public can donate their money in order to see a project they like come to light.
The plot of the film explores Tom Riddles life on his rise to becoming one of the most powerful wizards to have ever lived, along with his subsequent fall. The film details Riddles journey learning through the Dark Arts and his return to Hogwarts in his later years (not portrayed in the Harry Potter films).
The film set post-Hogwarts will be able to show the fans Tom Riddles troubling backstory along with the emergence of a witch named Grisha McLaggen, who is known to be the heir of Gryffindor and one of Riddles Hogwarts classmate, she is teased to be one to try and defeat him. Eagle-eyed fans would be quick to see how Grisha McLaggen is similar to that of Cormac Mclaggen, who was infatuated with Hermione Granger in her seventh year after meeting at the Slug Club.
