teamstarkidJuly 23, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The latest rage on the web is a parody of the Harry Potter movie series called ‘A Very Potter Sequel’. With hilarious digs at the original series the parody is a highly entertaining watch for all those who are not sensitive about Harry Potter and looking to watch something without rattling their brains.

The video was produced by a group called the Team StarKids which consists of students and graduates from the University of Michigan. The group met last year and produced their first hilarious parody of Harry Potter movies in the video ‘A Very Potter Musical’. After becoming a sensation on the web, the group has got together again to produce the sequel called ‘A Very Potter Sequel’. All the students involved in the project are reportedly Harry Potter fans and have also gained a significant amount of popularity over the year.

The parody does keep the characterization intact but makes some slight alterations in the appearance and personality of the characters to make the play more comical and appealing. For example, Professor Dumbledore is seen as a flamboyant character and Professor Umbridge’s role is played by a muscular guy who is dressed like a woman. There are also some profanities used throughout the play and the original time-line of Harry Potter is not maintained. There are also a few liberties that the parody makers have taken with the original series like Draco Malfoy is seen to have a strong crush on Hermione Granger. The parody can be best enjoyed by the viewers who are familiar with the original story of the JK Rowling books.
