Whether it is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or the vampire-filled Forks, Washington they both are home to a teenage obsession. The magical powers and leading trio are found in both movies. The Harry Potter movie series and the Twilight Saga have many similarities and differences. First, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is led by the three main characters Harry, Ron, and Hermione. These three main characters all have magical powers and have to keep their powers a secret from the “muggels”. The wizards in the Harry Potter series are born with their abilities and are trained to use them as they grow older. Something unusual about the magical beings in Harry Potter is that they are mortals and they can die. The Harry Potter movies are considered to be teen action movies. Secondly, The Twilight led world of Forks, Washington is also led by three main characters Edward, Bella, and Jacob.
All three of the main characters have some sort of magical power or ability. The magical abilities of the twilight stars also must be kept a secret from the humans. In the case of the Twilight Vampires they have to be changed by an existing vampire to become one. The Twilight werewolves, however, are born with a gene that allows them to become a werewolf if necessary. The Twilight vampires are immortal and can live forever unless destroyed by a fellow vampire. The Twilight movies belong to the teen romance genre. Whether it is a movie about Wizards or Vampires there will surely be teen “super-fans” involved. Both leading trios have become media magnets all over the world. The targeted teenage age group definitely clung to both Harry Potter and the Twilight Saga. Though they have many similarities and differences Harry Potter and Twilight both are the center of teenage obsessions.
