In what appears to be a growing trend, we here at SEB were highly amused to come across yet another movie parody that attempts to reduce a modern blockbuster, or blockbuster wannabe in the case of Van Helsing, to a mere fifteen minutes. This time it’s “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” in Fifteen Minutes. Here’s a couple o’ free samples:
Great Hall, Hogwarts
GROOVY NEW DUMBLEDORE: Many thanks to the Richard Harris Memorial Toad Choir for that lovely performance. Greetings, salutations, and what up: I will be your new Dumbledore this year, which I’m sure will be fabulous despite the presence of a few hundred undernourished ringwraiths on the premises. Hagrid will be taking over the Care of Magical Creatures class despite having no teaching credentials whatsoever, and also, we have a new teacher, Professor Lupin, to fill our cursed Defense of the Dark Arts spot. Good luck making it through the year alive, Remus!
SNAPE: *gives Lupin the stink-eye*
LUPIN: Oh, I feel at home already.
… and …
Some Really Long Bridge on the School Grounds That Didn’t Exist Before This Movie
Everyone else has gone to Hogsmeade. Harry can’t, because the Dursleys suck.
LUPIN: So I knew you’d conjure something terrifying, which is why I stopped you.
HARRY: Except that… you totally didn’t.
LUPIN: Whatever. My point is, I thought you’d choose Voldemort for your turn.
HARRY: Well, then, that makes letting me have a whack at the boggart really stupid, now, doesn’t it?
LUPIN: Here, eat this chocolate. You know, you look a lot like your father. Except that you have J.K. Rowling’s eyes.
HARRY: Awww, thanks.
I laughed! I cried! I snorted pop up my nose! Now go read the rest.
Found via ***Dave who seems to be collecting these things lately.
UPDATE: OK, I just have to include one more bit that made me literally laught out loud and startle several office mates who thought I was actually engaged in serious work:
HERMIONE: If you want to kill Harry, you’ll have to kill us first!
HP FANS: OMGWTF THAT WAS RON’S LINE! YOU CHANGED THINGS FROM THE BOOK!
LOTR FANS: What are you, new?
Ow, my sides hurt now.
