While his time as Draco Malfoy may be over, Tom Felton’s diving back into the world of Harry Potter with a new documentary that he calls “a more in depth look at the world of super fans”.
While we as fans sometimes worry about things like this because, whether they mean to or not, they can sometimes come off more mocking than kind –– it seems as though Felton wants to showcase the dedication of the fans of Harry Potter and other franchises:
It was a massive insight for me, going behind the ropes and seeing what people actually do to stand behind a railing at an event. You don’t really think about the three hours it took them to stand there and get the best spot.
The one hour documentary is estimated to air on BBC3 in either April or May and, along with the fan interviews, will also include interviews with Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and even J.K. Rowling herself.
Speaking with JustJared, Felton talked more about his plans for the documentary:
It’s just kind of a chance for me to have a more in depth look at the world of super fans and these people that have followed franchises–kind of at the root of why Harry Potter was so successful. It had such an active fan base. It’s allowed people to be passionate about stuff that maybe they couldn’t be so open with in previous years. It’s kind of a look into that, it’s a road trip journey with me narrating.
Between Joffrey becoming a huge humanitarian and Draco Malfoy openly associating with Muggles, it’s no wonder we learn to love the bad guys in our favorite shows and movies.
