Did J. K. Rowling Lift the Character of Harry Potter from the Harry Potter of Troll?
I have just stumbled on an interesting similarity of the famous boy wizard "Harry Potter" of billionaire British bestselling author J.K Rowling and the "Harry Potter" of Troll, the 1986 American cult dark fantasy film directed by John Carl Buechler and produced by Charles Band of Empire Pictures, starring Noah Hathaway, Michael Moriarty, Shelley Hack, Jenny Beck, and Sonny Bono.
The only difference between them is one wears glasses. Both are boys of the same age group.
According to Wikipedia, as of May 2015, the Harry Potter books have sold more than 450 million copies worldwide, making the series the best-selling book series in history, and have been translated into 73 languages..
It is incredible for Joanne "Jo" Rowling, OBE FRS to call it coincidental and to dismiss the claims of the makers of Troll as ludicrous. Even a retard cannot deny the glaring similarities.
Rowling’s "Harry Potter" series are of the same genre of cult dark fantasy as the story of Troll.
Read the extract from the plot of Troll and see all the glaring similarities.
Frightened by his sister's sudden and violent changes, he seeks solace in the company of a mysterious old woman named Eunice St. Clair, who lives upstairs. When he tells her of the strange goings-on, she reveals to him her real profession: a witch. Harry asks Eunice to teach him magic, but she says that there isn't time. She does instruct him as to the ways of a hidden magical world, and tells him of her long history stretching back to a time when she and a powerful wizard named Torok were in love. At that time the world was divided between fairies, which includes trolls, and humans. The realms were equal and independent of each other; however, Torok and some of the fairies challenged this balance resulting in a great war in which the humans prevailed. Torok was transformed into a troll as punishment. Eunice stands guard, as she has for centuries now in her apartment, waiting patiently for Torok to challenge the realms again, which is happening now. The troll wizard has already begun his secret war, going from apartment to apartment, attacking the tenants and transforming them into mythical creatures according to their personalities, such as goblins, nymphs, an elf, and a bugbear, and it transforms their rooms into lush fairy worlds. When every apartment is transformed the world of the fairies will burst forth into the world of the humans.
