The House of Gaunt (also known as The House of Gaunt - Lord Voldemort Origins) is an upcoming French short-film about the origin of the Harry Potter character Voldemort. It is a non-commercial fan-made crowdfunded project[1] starring Maxence Danet-Fauvel as Lord Voldemort.[2] The story will focus on Voldemort's different life stages as well.[3]

The script is partly adapted from the book Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.[4][5] Shooting began in May 2018 and ended in October 2020.[6] It is scheduled to release on 29 May 2021,[7] and on YouTube subsequently. [8]


The film explores the origin story of Voldemort and The Gaunt family[9], an old lineage that can be traced back to Salazar Slytherin, one of the four founding members of the wizarding school Hogwarts. The story follows Bob Ogden, the department Head of Magical Law Enforcement, who was sent to investigate Morfin Gaunt, a wizard who had reportedly attacked a Muggle with magic. Later that evening, he met Merope Gaunt who was watching a muggle named Tom Riddler Sr. through a window. This event will soon become the origin of the infamous dark lord, Lord Voldemort.[10][11]
