It will have been roughly two years since the last Potter book came out to unprecedented hype, fanfare, and ballyhoo. Thus, to welcome Harry back (as it were), I have come up with an appropriately half-assed idea for an imaginary television series.
The setup: An adult Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts to take over as Headmaster after Dumbledore’s departure. Now he has to deal with all of those unruly students...students very much like him and his friends “back in the day.” Hilarity ensues.
“WELCOME BACK, POTTER”Lame? Sure!
Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe
Hermione Potter - Rachel Dratch
Severus Snape - Chris Parnell
Draco Malforino - Seth Meyers
Ron Luis Pedro Phillipo de Huevos Epstein - Chris Kattan
Willy "Boom Boom" Weasley - Will Ferrell
Arnold Dingfelder Hagrid - Horatio Sanz
THEME SONG: WELCOME BACK, POTTER
It’s been a “spell” since you were here.
Pour yourself a great big mug of butterbeer.
Well, the place hasn’t changed much since Dumbledore
Molested a kid and was shown the door.
Who’d have thought they’d get ya
(Who’d have thought they’d get ya)
Back to school, you betcha?
(Back to school, you betcha?)
Yeah, we tease him a lot, Hogwarts got ’im on the spot,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
