Harry Potter: Movies, Musicals and Magic OH MY!

I just saw the new Harry Potter movie (based on the first part of the book Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows) at the Seattle Center IMAX and fell into a vortex of AWESOME-NESS. In fact, I was in a Potter-crazy coma for a week. If you haven’t seen the trailer, you must, so click here.

Well, in all honesty, it wasn’t the one movie alone. My family had a Harry Potter Marathon throughout the weekend, watching all six of the previous movies. It’s so cute to see Daniel Radcliffe – Harry Potter – grow up from the original Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone movie to now! On top of that, I also watched the Very Potter Musical and the Very Potter sequel by the Star Kid Potter group on Youtube. If you haven’t seen them and you love Harry Potter, you are missing out on so much! I’d recommend it for any Harry Potter fans ages 13+ who can handle six hours of nerdy fandom. If you fit the bill, here’s a link to the first act of the first musical (it might start kind of slow, but trust me, it gets way better). It’s not affliated with the Warner Brothers or J.K. Rowling in any way and is produced in the name of parodies and fans of the original Harry Potters.

Why, it’s the Very Potter Musical cast! See the link below for this image and many others, plus a more detailed review of both musicals:

I originally saw the Very Potter Musicals with a group of friends, before it recevied attention in the second season the hit TV show, Glee. Darren Criss, lead songwriter and actor, recently became a permanent cast member on the show, bringing the Very Potters to the limelight. Personally, I think his incredible songwriting and preformance in the Very Potters got him the part. Apparently Star Kid Potter is considering a third musical, but nothing is final yet (but I’m really hoping).

Try it, you’ll like it! Hopefully I won’t explode with anticipation before the next Harry Potter comes out…
