While the first film of spin-off trilogy Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is being developed, Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, is set to take part in a documentary on the franchise and its fans. The documentary will be one hour and is to be produced by BBC for an April release this year. There’s also a plan to release it online for all to see.
The Mary Sue reported that the documentary, untitled at the moment, will feature interviews with author JK Rowling and the main stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, but also with some fans. Felton will be the narrator and has said that it will be “in depth look at the world of super fans and these people that have followed franchises.”
There are already concerns over the treatment of fans. Whether this documentary is going to paint them in a positive or negative light, though Felton is a fan as well with him recently joining Pottermore, an interactive site for the fans. He has also visited theme park Diagon Alley at Universal Studios in Orlando, and even making Harry Potter references every now and then on social media especially Instagram. Felton’s constant excitement over the franchise should reassure fans and also letting the world know that Harry Potter isn’t going to die off anytime soon.
