Web Series Spotlight: Hermione Granger and the Quarter Life Crisis

“I’ve made all the right decisions, but I’m starting to feel that the right decisions might have been the wrong ones.”

Every wonder what the Potter Gang were up to in those intervening 19 years? From the mind of Eliyannah Yisrael comes the answer.

On January 16th, Sunshine Moxie launched the web series Hermione Granger and the Quarter Life Crisis on YouTube. It’s Hermione’s 25th birthday and she is tired of the way her life is going. So off she apperates to L.A. to hang out with old school friend, Parvati Patil. Along the way she meets up with old friends, like Draco Malfoy, and makes new ones, like Kang Tae Joon.

Creator Yisrael didn’t come into the world of Harry Potter until her mother asked her to read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban to make sure it was appropriate for her little brother, but quickly became a fan. Years later, as an aspiring director dissatisfied with the epilogue, she decided to explore what Hermione had done in those skipped over years.

The story follows Hermione’s adventures in L.A. with Parvati and learning more about herself and her place in the world post Hogwarts and a break up with Ron. They promise to explore Draco’s life, Hermione’s family relationships, and what happened to Hermione to bring her to the point we see in the epilogue.

The show has a diverse cast of characters, featuring an African-American Hermione in the forefront and is being written by a diverse group of men and women. Based on just the first episode, it promises to be a fun show mixing vibes of Sex and the City and classic Harry Potter.

Check out a peek of the trailer:

The show is currently low on funds and crew to make the second episode and has sent out an impassioned plea to fans.

You can follow the series on their websiteYouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.
