Featured Short: The Tale of the Three Brothers [Video]

The Tale of the Three Brothers is a fairy tale told to wizard children. Supposedly written by Beedle the Bard, it is published as part of a series of works that collectively are called The Tales of Beedle the Bard. While most wizards view this story as one that teaches children morals (e.g. humility, wisdom, etc.), some believe that the story refers to the Deathly Hallows, three highly powerful magical artefacts coveted by generations of wizards, and the three Peverell brothers who first obtained them. ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’ also has a different variation, referring to twilight as midnight to make it more suspenseful for the entertainment of children, but in Dumbledore’s original copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard it refers to the journey taking place at twilight.

  1. Do we know what the last male voice is supposed to be? I went to vimeo and watched the end again, but it's still cut off…

  2. It is Xenophilius Lovegood, Luna's father as Harry, Ron and Hermione go to him for help….yes i am a geek… Hope this helped!

  3. Yeah that is the story of the 3 Deathly hallows from… Harry potter and… the deathly hallows (the fisrt).

    I think that is what I prefer in that movie, good to see it again without having to suffer the longest boring camping session of literature adapted for cinema.
