Review: A Verry Potter Musical & Sequel

In April 2009, a group of University of MichiganTeam StarKid[94][95]) performed "Harry Potter: The Musical", a two act musical parody that featured major elements from all seven books and an original score. They posted the entire musical on their YouTube channel but removed it in late June, to edit some more mature elements from the videos. The musical, retitled students (A Very Potter Musical, was reposted on 5 July 2009. The plot followed Voldemort's attempts to return to his body using Professor Quirrell and the House Cup Tournament. A sequel was premiered at the 2010 HPEF Harry Potter Conference Infinitus. The sequel was later released on YouTube on July 22 at 8pm EST, called A Very Potter Sequel, and featured the Death Eaters using the Time-Turner to go back in time to Harry's first year in Hogwarts.


A Very Potter Musical & Sequel were 5 hours awesomely spent on Youtube! Harry Potter fan or not, i think you should watch it. Maybe you will not get all the jokes but this thing is just amazing! Just have in mind some basics from Harry Potter and you are okay. They are mixing up the stories anyway. The play was created for fun. It's full of jokes, songs and while it's a parody they do get some Harry Potter things better than the movies.

....we gotta get back to hogwarts
we gotta get back to school
we gotta get back to hogwarts
where everything is magic-cooooool

back to witches and wizards, and magical beasts
to goblins and ghosts and to magical feasts
it's all that I love, and it's all that I need at

The actors are not famous people, except Darren Criss who plays Harry (he is known from Glee), who he actually wasn't famous at the time they did it either. But hell! Those guys are talented! They are better than many professional actors we see out there, with great acting and musical skills!
Almost all of the known characters from HP appear (except some of the adults) without afraid putting girls into boys roles and the opposite and make something extraordinary.

I have already learn full lines from the play and i repeat them to my friends again and again. And i actually made Johnny and Filios, to watch some parts and i'm planning to make them watch the whole thing at some point. Until then, they will just have to keep listening to me XD

Team Starkid also has other plays on Youtube (if i didn't mention it already you can watch everything on Youtube and there are versions with subs too) and they actually touring for concerts with their songs. How perfect is to sing songs about Hogwarts!? Too bad i will never get to see them up close.

I really don't know what to say. I just loved it so much! I'm out of words really...and i'm thinking to fill the post with gifs so you will get a glimpse!...sigh...i was trying to find some cool gifs and i started watching it again...i'm obsessed...

Needless to say that Filios spit out his water at this part and couldn't stop laughing.

And hey! EVEN Tom Felton approves!

And here is the first part for the people who are too bored to Youtube it by themselves! (you can also search with "English subtitles" if you want)


  1. I love them! I know most of the musicals by heart (and not only the songs, the lines too). Team Starkid are truly a super talented bunch of people. If you have the time, watch their other 2 musicals - Me&My Dick and Starship. :)

  2. I love StarKids! A Verry Potter Musical & Sequel rocks!!! And I agree with you that they are better actors. I really enjoy watching their musicals. It is hilarious and the songs are easy to sing too. Too bad I don't get the chance to watch them live. So you are not the only one. If they do international tour I'll make sure to see them.

  3. I watched the two musicals some weeks ago and I really laughed a lot, it's so well done and I love the humour in it :D I find the people who do Draco, Snape, Umbridge and Voldemort hilarious, LOL but I liked the people who do Harry & Ron & Hermione great as well, they are all great really :D And I have even put a lot of the songs from the musicals on my iPod and have listened to it so much, I had "Back to Hogwarts" and "Harry freakin' Potter" in my head so many times :P The picture from Tom Felton and that Pigfarts sign is awesome, haha, Pigfarts rules :P

  4. I think their malfoy is cooler than the original XD


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
