While Darren Criss is now famed for Glee, he first came to many people’s attention as part of Team StarKid, which gained notoriety for a series of Harry Potter themed musical parodies (and various other fun bits). Now the final part of their Potter trilogy, ‘A Very Potter Senior Year’, has been released on Youtube. It’s been a long wait for fans, as the staged reading was shot last August at LeakyCon, but has only now been released.
While Criss is back in the lead role, his Glee commitments meant he literally had no time to rehearse. There’s also a real Potter luminary on hand, with Evanna Lynch lynch reprising her role as Luna Lovegood for the musical.
It’s a great cap to the Very Potter journey. You can watch the latest instalment here, or catch up on the first two musicals over on the Team StarKid Youtube page.
