Shh... those ads fund our site.

Whether you are a fan of Star Wars or Harry Potter, Hog Wars will provide a renewed appreciation for your favorite, as well as a deeper respect for the other. For those who are new to both, Hog Wars will show you why these stories are among the most popular of all time!

So it's more of a venn diagram?

Thank god. At first I thought it was some sort of mass produced mash-up fanfic. 30% chance of it being yaoi :|

Fixed... but not funny...

Well, anyway, that's pretty creepy. Besides, it would kinda work if Voldemort was Harry's father or something.
Dumbledore = Yoda/Gandalf,
Hagrid = Chewbacca/Lando,
Broomstick = X-Wing

Yeah, not very interesting.

Star Wars = Good.
Harry Potter = Good.

Star Wars + Harry Potter = Bad.

It may be "different," but it's still uncreative, unoriginal, and exploitive.

This doesn't exactly look like Kingdom Hearts. I imagine Star Wars and Harry Potter are pretty much incompatible.

People need to learn to keep their fantasies to themselves.

wicket the ewok or nobby the house elf... who would win in a cage match?

Darth Slayne

Neither! They both belong in a taxidermist’s establishment, along with Jar Jar Binks!

It's a book stating the already obvious similarities and plot devices of your standard boy grows up tale.

Honestly, I don't know how this got to publishing. Neither Star Wars nor Harry Potter possesses a plot that is able to be critically analyzed for long.

They're just trying to market to the nerds. I can only imagine Darth Vader, ready to kill Luke on Cloud City, when in the background "RICTOSUMPRA!"

lol, why do I now imagine Harry Potter as a KOTOR party member, ewww cleanse me plz.

IT'S THE MONOMYTH! According to my Language Arts teacher, every story ever written is exactly the same structure! If they're gonna compare these two, may as well compare LOTR and Star Wars, or Harry Potter and the tales of King Arthur! They're all the same!

Mike Windu

Aye, there are many similarities and archetypes that are unavoidable. The difference between them is the framing and the individual writer's ability to create a world in which the characters aren't as one dimensional as their thematic skeletons.

I.E. the Tolkien v. the Lucas. Granted Tolkien was too wordy for my tastes, but I acknowledge his skill. Lucas' best line - "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo..."
