Fanedit Name: Harry Potter and the Boy Who Never Lived: Part 1
Faneditor Name: RollWave
Tagline: But no matter, no matter. Things have changed.

Original Movie Title: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Fanedit Type: Fanmix

Original Release Date: 2005
Original Running Time: 157 minutes
Fanedit Release Date: March 2018
Fanedit Running Time: 117 minutes

Brief Synopsis:

Harry Potter and the Boy Who Never Lived: Part 1 is a full-length fan edited film based on the Harry Potter series that explores an alternative magical universe in which Snape and Lily never grew apart, creating a number of ripple effects, one of which is that Harry Potter was never born. Through a restructured narrative and a number of special effects, the character Harry Potter is completely removed from the movie.

Intention:
There are a number of times throughout the HP series where Harry’s “saving people thing” makes things worse (Dept. of Mysteries) or where the day would have already been saved without him (Mirror of Erised). What if Harry Potter was removed completely? Could a story be told that still hits all the major plot points without the central character?

This project wasn’t just about cutting Harry Potter though. There have been a number of additions that movie viewers have never seen before. There are 7 deleted scenes reinserted, 2 new characters added, 2 new songs added, new dialogue for Mad-Eye and Victor Krum added, and a brand new opening sequence and custom closing credits.

2. Changed Hermione’s newspaper on Hogwart’s Express from The Prophet to The Quibbler
3. Professor Moody is in fact Mad-Eye Moody (not Barty Crouch Jr)
4. Victor Krum fights the Hungarian Horntail during the 1st Event
5. Hermione wins the Felix Felicis potion, and actually puts it in Ron’s cup.
6. Since Sirius was never in Azkaban in this timeline, and therefore never broke out, Fudge blames the breakout on Bellatrix.

9. Neville provides Ron with Gillyweed so he can save Gabrielle during the Triwizard Tournament 2nd Event

Since I expect most viewers will watch the mp4, below is the animated title menu present in the BluRay and DVD copy that you won't see in the mp4 version.


I'll also provide a youtube clip showing the first 2 minutes of the fanedit. This clip could be named "Explain WHY there would be no Harry Potter in as short a time as possible".

Impressive looking FX shots in that trailer. If you've pulled this one out of the hat then you must be a magician. Nice to see the late great Rik Mayall making an appearance. Edit is now up on ifdb.

Thank you.

If you like the special fx in the trailer - if you haven't already watched the bluray title menu video in post #2 of this thread, I recommend that one as well - it does a better job of showing HOW some of the fx are done.

Congrats on finishing! Looks like you've come a really long way, from the cartoon tree superimposed to professional looking compositing. Very creative and inspiring!
