Pakistan’s Government College (GC ) University in Lahore is celebrating a week-long Harry Potter Festival and will be screening ‘The Last Follower And The Resurrection Of Voldemort’ which is Pakistan’s first fan-made Harry Potter film.
The trailer of the movie has been creating a buzz on social media with people expressing awe at the exceptional talent and creativity shown by the students. The trailer shows GC University Campus with the old-school arches, brick walls, and long windows that bears striking resemblance to that of Hogwarts. Students are also seen wearing Hogwarts-like cloaks and woolen scarves.
The trailer has garnered attention as netizens argued that the GC University students are giving a tough competition to the entertainment industry of Pakistan that has not been able to produce anything like this so far that too in minimum budgets.
