2. Scene 1
EXT - ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE, AFTERNOON
Wide on - HOGWARTS EXPRESS chugging along through the countryside. It is sunny. Music overlays.
UNKOWN MALE (V.O)
Goodbye Hogwarts...one year down, six more to go.
Oooh. I just love chocolate frogs. Look, I got my dad. Again.
UNKOWN MALE 2 (V.O)
Come on, James. This isn't your story, you know.
I'm only having a bit of fun. You should try it sometime, Teddy.
Leave it, Potter. Let the Halliday's tell their own story in peace.
Please. For the sanity of everyone.
Urgh. All right. Drumroll please!
A faint drumroll noise sounds, like someone using their thighs as a drum.
FADE TO BLACK
SUPERIMPOSE - NOT HARRY POTTER
A pale hand appears, holding a wand.
UNKOWN FEMALE (V.O)
A rope appears from the end of the wand, creating a lasso which wraps around the title. The letters are squeezed together slightly. The hand jerks backwards, off screen, and the rope and title follow.
