Voldemort: Origins of the Heir depicts the story of Tom Riddle's rise to power.

The official website states "We [the creators] wondered:

"What made Tom Riddle become Voldemort? What happened in those years, and what really went down at Hogwarts when he came back? There are some clues in the books which have not been transposed at all in the movies, but a lot goes unspoken. This is the story we want to tell: the rise of the Dark Lord before Harry Potter and his first demise."[1]
