In interview to the Polygon, Gianmaria Pezzato, director of Voldemort – Origins of The Heir, confirmed that Warner Bros. gave him their blessing to produce the fan film that caught the attention of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World fans in the last weeks. “The only thing we can say is that they let us proceed with the film, in a non profit way, obviously”.
Pezzato yet says that he does not dismiss the possibility of getting involved in other projects related to Harry Potter, but reassures that, at the time, he’s 100% focused in Origins of The Heir. “This is the story we want to tell: The rise of the Dark Lord before Harry Potter and his first demise”.
