Someone named Thewlis Rox re-cut a Harry Potter trailer to look like that of a teen romantic comedy, and I must say, the results are pretty convincing. No one has a crazy party when their parents are away, violates a pastry, or loses their virginity to someone’s mom, but it still looks like an entertaining teen flick to me. The Harry Potter movies have always had a “normal teenager” element to them; the attribution of magical powers to characters kids can identify with is what makes it such a wonderful fantasy for viewers. But you’ve never seen Harry quite like this. Too bad it’s not an actual movie. Fan fic screenplay, anyone?
