We all know about the boy with the lightning scar, the one who defeated He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, but maybe there’s more to the beginning of his story than meets the eye. Was Hagrid actually a criminal mastermind? Are you sure it was the troll who did the attacking in that bathroom? Did Voldemort want to kill #HarryPotter, or just give him a hug? Well, there’s a new video series that can answer these questions for you.
Inspired by the absurdity found in all forms of media, two creators have launched a new satirical series that takes a story and twists it on its figurative head. “What Literally Happened” goes through the movies you love (and love to hate) to highlight the wonderful nuances we all overlook when we’re too busy focusing on the actual “story.”
The movie, inspired by the book that started it all, is a classic in its own right. It’s the one we all watched on ABC Family over and over again. I mean, I can quote entire scenes, which is, (I know) curious, very curious. Maybe there’s a new way to look at it; “What Literally Happened in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” is a doorway to a very different magical world. All you have to do is change your perspective. Better yet, just watch, as this show does it for you. You’ll come out with more than a few laughs, and maybe a desire to watch the movie again. You know, just to make sure that the lovable giant isn’t actually a smooth criminal.
