I hope this is helpful. I’m hoping for a theatrical release soon.
Alan Rickman narrates the animated film “The Boy in the Bubble”, a story about Rupert, a ten year old boy, falls hopelessly in love for the first time. When it all goes terribly wrong, he wishes never to experience heartache again. Turning to a book of magic, he invokes a spell to shield him from emotion forever.
It’s like Harry Potter all over. The boy has black hair and the girl he falls in love with has red hair. *cries* But his bad choices lead him to join the death eaters and Lily, not able to accept it, breaks the friendship and later marries James Potter. Soon after, Severus learns about the prophecy and tries to persuade the Dark Lord to spare Lily’s life, but fails. So he must protect her son - the last memory of Lily. He shields his emotions by being cruel to Harry and not until his after his death where Harry will find out the secret of the Prince’s Tale.
“After all this time?”, said Dumbledore. “Always,” said Snape.
