Utah-Tube: ‘The wand chooses the wizard’ in Harry Potter video from Stuart Edge


“The wand chooses the wizard.”

This phrase, offered by Mr. Ollivander, a wandmaker in the Harry Potter series, develops a new meaning as people passing through a parking garage discover a wand.

A YouTube video released Thursday by Provo-based Stuart Edge shows what happens next.

Upon picking up the wand, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and dementors appear and begin a battle.  Soon the unbeknownst wizards and witches are joined by other characters from the series — Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley.

The civilians emerge victorious, thanks in part to the use of the spell, “Expecto Patronum,” unleashing a patronus that fights off the dementors.

Edge released the video a day before the premiere of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” a movie set in the world of Harry Potter with a screenplay penned by author J. K. Rowling. The movie is set 70 years before the time of the Harry Potter series.
