    Harry Potter fans, you know who "the Marauders" are. For those of you who don't, basically they were four Gryffindor students who were BFFs and went to Hogwarts in the 1970s.

    For the longest time, fans have craved a prequel film or TV series that would explore the lives of the Marauders, primarily whilst at Hogwarts. Unfortunately, she-who-must-not-be-named has said she's unlikely to write a such series as she's not fond of prequels.

    This hasn't stopped fans passionately imagining what a prequel series would look like though. In fact, a fairly viral Fancast popped up on the internet a few years back.
