Severus Snape and the Marauders
Thursday, June 23, 2016
Millennium Maxwell House Hotel • Nashville, TN
Q&A with writer/director Justin Zagri and cast afterward
Set in 1978, Severus Snape, James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew and Lily Evans have just graduated from Hogwarts School. As James and his friends known only to each other as The Marauders drink at a bar, Snape enters as well, hoping to find Lily. Knowing their dark future, and the part Snape might play, James decides to do something about his longtime rival once and for all.
If you’re not familiar with the Broad Strokes team, their first short film that takes place in the Potterverse, “The Greater Good,” is set almost a hundred years before “The Sorcerers Stone.” It explores the end of a friendship, the beginnings of the dark wizard Grindelwald, and the tragedy that left the Dumbledore family in ruins. It has been watched over three million times on YouTube. It clocks in at a little over 17 gripping minutes. It’s awesome. Watch it NOW:
