This is what would happen if Harry Potter were the villain

We all know that Harry Potter — the boy wizard, the boy wonder, and the boy who lived — saves the day in the end. He defeats Voldemort, rids the Wizarding World of Dark Magic, and goes on to live a happy life with his family. But things for Harry could have gone very differently, had he ever turned to turn to Dark Magic. Remember, the Sorting Hat almost placed him in Slytherin.

Now one YouTuber has decided to give us a taste of what Harry would look like if he used his powers for evil instead of good. Taking scenes from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, user BloodBlitz has edited everything into his own movie trailer: Harry Potter: The Boy Who Kills. Even Dumbledore can’t save Harry.

In the movie (and in the book) Harry’s very angry throughout the whole story, since he learns the truth about his parent’s death and Sirius Black. While the Harry we know and love handles it all with a level head, his outrage could have in theory caused him to kill. So when he inflates Aunt Marge? In this version it’s not an accident; she totally had it coming. Malfoy’s accident with Buckbeak the Hippogriff? Could have been all Harry’s fault, and Malfoy could have died. Even Professor McGonagall now states that Harry is “vicious.”

Now add some haunting music to the trailer, and we’re looking at Harry Potter as the villain.

Check out the trailer below, and let’s be thankful this isn’t how the story turned out.
