Uproar today in the film world as it has been announced that due to the current cast members of the Harry Potter movies growing up too quickly, it has been decided to recast all the Hogwarts students with younger actors, for all remaining films in the series.
This has caused considerable distress to fans all around the world and has sparked fears that the remaining pictures may be boycotted en masse by the cinema going public.
Daniel Ratcliffe who plays Frodo told The Spoof:
"This is bang out of order. I am Harry Potter! There's no way that I can be replaced. It's thanks only to my superlative acting skills that anybody has gone to see these films in the first place. Quite frankly without me they may as well forget it! It's like suggesting that they can do a James Bond movie without Sean Connery"
And the girl who plays Heidi said:
"Well loves, the whole thing is a travesty and there's really no way that the studio can hope to get away with this. The fans won't have it"
But Warner Bros are adamant that it's all change. A studio insider told us:
"The current kids are way too old and we had to do something about it. It may be tricky for die hard fans to accept the changes but what was the alternative for Chrissakes? Harry Potter with a beard and Hermione with size 38 double D hooters? It just weren't on!"
Only time will tell whether or not the public will accept the drastic changes but author of the books, JK Rowling, couldn't care less. She's been wedged up to the max already and even if the remaining movies do bomb it won't make the slightest bit of difference to her.
