A Very Potter Musical is a musical parody of the Harry Potter books. This musical was written and performed by Team StarKid and released as a series of videos on YouTube on July 5th, 2009.
The show begins with Harry's second year at Hogwarts. Professor Quirrell, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, reinstates the House Cup Tournament, and a champion from each House is chosen to compete. But when Voldemort uses the tournament to fulfill a plot to return to his body, things take a turn for the grim for Harry and his friends, who must find and destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes before it's too late.
This was the first musical released online by Team StarKid. The show was previously called "Harry Potter: The Musical" but had to be retitled due to copyright issues.
The plot mashes together elements from books 1, 4, 6, and 7 in the series, but the musical is very much their own work, with unique subplots and interpretations of the characters.
