Harry Potter TV Series The Aurors Hoax

Although I thought I’d made it through the day without getting pranked, when I went to write my blog today I looked up something I’d read on ign.  It was a TV show based in the world of Harry Potter, following a group of aurors that work for the Ministry of Magic.  Well it turns out the show is a fake, but they put so much work into it that I’m awarding it prank of the year.

You may not agree with me yet, but wait until you watch the trailer they made.  It’s very good.  Unfortunately, I didn’t see the trailer until after I’d found out that it was a hoax, so I can’t say for sure whether it’s really convincing or not.  The trailer shows an auror at the start of his career, being interviewed by his boss and chasing down a criminal.

I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and I have to say I like the idea.  I definitely would have watched it and I think I’d have liked it too.  Apparently this isn’t the first time ign has pulled an April Fools prank; they’ve done it a few times including making a fake live action Zelda trailer.  I’m actually really excited about April Fools Day next year now, I can’t wait to see what prank they pull then.

What do you think?  Would you like to see this show get made?  Did you get fooled by ign?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.  Don’t forget to subscribe.
