12 years ago today, on Nov. 16, the film adaptation of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" opened in theaters, starting an eight film series that would go on to gross more than $7 billion.
It has been over two years since the final film was released, but that didn't stop filmmaker Wren Weichman from continuing the story past the books written by J.K. Rowling. Weichman has directed and produced a new short film, "The OMEn Chronicles" that takes place in the world of "Harry Potter," now fifteen years after the events of the final book.
No familiar faces from the book series show up, but fans of "Harry Potter" should recognize the spells and wands being used by the new characters (even if this time around they're said with American accents).
This isn't the only screen adaptation fans can look forward to. It was announced back in September that Rowling was bringing her "Harry Potter" spinoff book "Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them" to the screen with her screenwriting debut.
So pour yourself a mug of Butterbeer and watch the short film above.
