Trivia: A Very Potter Musical

The original:

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: For the three people who saw Darren Criss on Eastwick before A Very Potter Musical. Something tells me this will happen a lot more to him once he starts appearing on Glee.
  • What Could Have Been: At 2012 LeakyCon, StarKids revealed several examples:
    • The show was originally intended as more serious and more faithful to the books
    • Before Dylan joined the cast, Joe Walker was intended to play both Voldemort and Dumbledore
    • Brian Rosenthal was at one point considered for the role of Harry and Lauren was considered for Hermione.

The sequel:

  • Hey, It's That Guy!
    • Holy shit, Umbridge is Voldemort in a dress?!
    • Co-creator Nick Lang pops up as Arthur, Umbridge's mom, Peter Pettigrew, the Sorting Hat, and the Scarf of Sexual Preference.
    • Several of the new characters are played by Me and My Dick alums. Flopsy is Lupin, The Old Snatch is Sirius, Big T is Yaxley, Weenie is Lily, Hedwig, and Luna.
    • Tyler Brunsman (Cedric Diggory) is Lucius Malfoy.
    • Brian Rosenthal, who played Quirrell, now plays Seamus Finnigan. And James Potter in a flashback.
    • Jim Povolo now doubles as both Goyle and Firenze.
    • In A Very Potter Senior Year we see many actors who haven't been in a Starkid production for a while.
  • When the kids go back in time and they see themselves in the past, they're all played by people in the play who look nothing like them. Draco is played by the tallest guy in the show (Jim Povolo a.k.a Goyle) Hermione is played by a husky man (Richard Campbell a.k.a Neville), Ron is played by a much skinnier guy (Brian Rosenthal a.k.a. Seamus), and Harry is a petite Asian girl (Sango Tajima a.k.a. Lavender Brown) in an afro wig.
