Harry Potter fans, you know who “the Marauders” are. For those of you who don’t, basically they were four Gryffindor students who were BFFs and went to Hogwarts in the 1970s.
For the longest time, fans have craved a prequel film or TV series that would explore the lives of the Marauders, primarily whilst at Hogwarts. Unfortunately, she-who-must-not-be-named has said she’s unlikely to write a such series as she’s not fond of prequels.
This hasn’t stopped fans passionately imagining what a prequel series would look like though. In fact, a fairly viral Fancast popped up on the internet a few years back.
Since those actors are now too old to play teenagers, I’ve come up with a new cast for if there ever is a Marauders-centric spin-off! I’ve studied the texts and done my research, and come up with a prospective list that includes essential and supporting characters. Alright, let’s get into it…
Kit Connor as James Potter
Louis Partridge as Sirius Black
Louis Hynes as Remus Lupin
Louis Ashbourne Serkis as Peter Pettigrew
Emily Carey as Lily Evans
Earl Cave as Severus Snape
Ruby Stokes as Petunia Evans
Noah Jupe as Regulus Black
Araloyin Oshunremi as Kingsley Shacklebolt
Freya Allan as Patricia Rakepick
Bella Ramsey as Marlene McKinnon
Bukky Bakray as Dorcas Meadowes
Tamara Smart as Mary MacDonald
Daniel Roche as Evan Rosier
Amir Wilson as Gaige Mulciber
Emma Mackey as Bellatrix Black
John Bradley as Rubeus Hagrid
Tilda Swinton as Minerva McGonagall
Benedict Cumberbatch as Voldemort
And finally, Jared Harris as Albus Dumbledore
