With the release of Alan Rickman’s final on-screen performance in Eye in the Sky, I would like to talk about one of his other famous roles. That would of course be Severus Snape from the Harry Potter series. While Snape was a great character, he didn’t really have much of a backstory. Some fans have made a 25-minute short prequel film, “Severus Snape and the Marauders”, which will provide us with more information. Its focus is on Snape and Harry’s father James Potter. The film’s synopsis is: “Set in 1978 just after Harry Potter’s father James graduates from Hogwarts, he and his friends Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew celebrate at a bar, contemplating their place in a war they are to soon become a part of. When Severus Snape enters the same bar, knowing the part he might play in the war, James Potter decides to do something about Snape once and for all.” I have included said video below.
