Aug 21 2005 19:47 Star Wars and Harry Potter
So, more Star Wars/Harry Potter connections:
  1. Avada Kedavra versus Vader's Sith Neck Pinch
  2. Crucio versus Force lightning
  3. Imperius versus everyone and their droid's mind control
  4. Broomstick flying and snitch-catching versus bullseye-eyeing womp-rats in Beggar's Canyon in a T-16 Skyhopper.
  5. Boy Who Lived versus Boy who will bring balance to the Force
  6. Dumbledore's "I have no wand" speech versus the Emperor's "I have no weapon" speech
  7. Is Dumbledore going to pull a Qui-gon? (I was going to say Obi-wan, but Qui-gon fits better)
  1. The villain used to be the greatest student ever: Anakin/Riddle was taught by Obi-wan/Dumbledore and became the evil Vader/Voldemort -- who was then redeemed (not yet, or ever, in the HPverse) by someone similar to him, i.e. Luke/Harry.
  2. Ghosts and Force-ghosts.
  1. Flitwick versus Yoda
  2. McGonnagal versus Windu
  3. Natural flying skills
  4. Wand-brothers versus "Luke, I am your [spoiler]"
  5. Harry/Luke's father turns out to be evil
  6. Voldemort's side constantly called the "Dark Side", Voldemort is a "Dark Lord"
  1. Yoda's "Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering." and Riddle's "Greatness inspires envy, envy engenders spite, spite spawns lies."
  2. Ron and Hermione bickering and Han and Leia bickering.
  3. House-elves and droids
