The Greater Good

I'll admit it. I am a total Harry Potter fanboy.
Loved the books, loved the movies, loved the hype.  JKR can do no wrong in my eyes and I hope she sleeps on a bed made of gold like Smaug (though in truth she supports more charities than most groups of people).

I have read the books a number of times. Have seen all the movies multiple times and I want to throw it out there that if ever a Harry Potter RPG ever gets made then I want my name on the short list of authors.

So anytime there is something new in the Potterverse I am pleased.
The newest new thing is a fan movie called "The Greater Good".

It deals with the end of the friendship and relationship between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald and the lasting effect it had on the Dumbledore family and eventually on a boy named Harry Potter.
This 17 minute film is based around a brief narrative in The Deathly Hollows.

Watch it and make the next magical battle between wizards you have this cool.

As a total Harry Potter fangirl, I thank you for sharing this.

Haven't had time to watch the film yet but have you considered putting together a pitch for a company like Cubicle 7 to put in front of JKR's agent and really sell her on the idea of a Harry Potter game?

Timothy S. Brannan said...

@Tim, JKR has repeatedly said no to such things. So right now it is only a dream.

Great short film. I would have missed this completely. Thanks Tim.

I know she was opposed to the idea in the past ("no-one else can tell stories in my world", which is fair enough), but I wonder if her mood might have changed now the main series has finished (and the movies).

I love Harry Potter, I've read each book at least 25 times, and I think this is awesome.I,ve always loved the Dumbledore-Grindlewald connection, too, so this is just perfect.
