VIDEO: What if Harry Potter was from Prague?

Harry Potter and the city of London will be forever intertwined, but have you ever wondered what J.K. Rowling’s classic creation might have looked like if he was from the Czech Republic?

Now you can get a taste thanks to Czech YouTube wiz Michal Orsava, who in previous videos imagined Tom Hanks’ Robert Langdon in Brno, David Hasselhoff driving Knight Rider down the D1, and Macaulay Culkin’s character from Home Alone lost in Prague.

Orsava’s latest video, released yesterday, imagines a Philosopher’s Stone-era Harry Potter living in a Czech panelak with Helena Růžičková’s character from the Sluce, seno film series before being called away to Pragwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Orsava reimagines famous scenes of Harry, Ron, and Hermione over famous Prague backdrops, and throws in more than few Czech Easter eggs along the way.

Czech President Miloš Zeman makes an extended appearance as the clip’s version of Dumbledore, and Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and press secretary Jiří Ovčáček also show up during the proceedings.
