The magical world of Harry Potter has brought joy to many wizards and witches. The Potterheads have 7 Harry Potter books, 8 Harry Potter movies, The Cursed Child, and now the Fantastic Beast trilogy but are still clamoring for more. The wizarding world seems to be hungry for more magical content to transport them back to Hogwarts.
So naturally many production houses have answered these requests. YouTubers, blogs, and fan accounts create numerous content on Harry Potter. Today we are going to specifically talk about fan-made films that a Potterhead would absolutely love.
These fan-made films are produced usually by small production houses. They are unofficial Harry Potter movies. The plots of most fan-made movies usually are a prequel to the original movies or an extension of the Wizarding World information provided by J.K. Rowling.
So get comfy and get ready to board the Hogwarts Express back to the wizarding world with 4 fan-made Harry Potter prequels that you should consider watching:
Voldemort: Origins of the Heir is the prequel fanmade movie of the Harry Potter series. The story follows the path of Tom Riddle becoming the Dark Lord.
