Creator/TeamStarKid announced plans for [[http://wizardinglife.com/2010/11/starkid-interview-starship-coverage-a-very-potter-threequel/ a third Very Potter Musical]], or ''A Very Potter Senior Year''. Their intention was to stage and premiere the threequel in the four-and-a-half months between ''Theatre/{{Starship}}'' and the release of ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2]]''. However, the availability of Creator/DarrenCriss (who plays Harry and writes the majority of Creator/TeamStarKid's music) was in question since he was cast as a regular on ''Series/{{Glee}}'', [[http://www.annarbor.com/entertainment/darren-criss-and-team-starkids-harry-potter-threequel-wont-happen-this-summer and the project was indefinitely postponed]]. Though a full scale production still cannot be performed in the foreseeable future, a reading of the script featuring music, costumes, props (albeit much lower-quality than what was featured in prior productions), staging, choreography, a narrator (who describes settings and other visual elements the team wasn't able to put together) and a huge number of Creator/TeamStarKid actors was presented at [=LeakyCon=] 2012. The script, soundtrack, and video of the reading have been released. Its story is mostly from books 2, 6, and 7.
