Star Wars/Harry Potter

Recommended Posts

Harry Potter is many things, original it is not.

 

I don't think there's an original idea in it, but in fairness the way it's mixed together is pretty good.

Lucas borrowed many ideas for Star Wars from a range of sources IIRC. It's difficult to come up with anything TRULY original these days. There's a lot of Tolkein influences in Harry Potter as well tbh.

Yup Star Wars isn't particularly original (except perhaps in setting) either, just Harry Potter isn't original in anything, pretty much.

Terry Pratchett said he read in an intereview JK Rowling gave that she didn't realise she was writing a fantasy novel. To wich he said "You would think that all those witches wizards trolls giants and unicorns would have given her a clue".

I'm quite interested to see if she tries to write anything else (not that there'd be any need with the £££'s).

I read somewhere a while ago that she said she had cabinets full of ideas and was desperate to use some of them but everyone just wanted Harry Potter so she kept on churning out those instead. Nothing to do with the £££ of course. </cynic>
