Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Jonathan Kasdan said that the massive appearance of Harry Potter made him think about the farmer-turned-sorcerer from Ron Howard’s fantasy. J.K. Rowling’s beloved book series turned phenomenal blockbuster (in which Davis also played two different characters) is recognized as having the same cultural impact as Star Wars, and even with its groundbreaking effect, it was the very beginning of Mister Being.” Potter’s adventures that he remembered.
“It’s hard not to look at the beginning of Harry Potter – the baby left on the doorstep – and equate it pretty clearly with that,” Kasdan said of The Boy Who Lived. “You have to wonder if JK Rowling hasn’t thought about it a bit.” Kasdan was referring to the safe transportation of Elnora Danan, a prophetic little prankster who had been promised a turnaround against the forces of evil. It looks like? Sure, but that’s also the backstory of Superman and other Lucasfilm-based heroes, Luke and Leia Skywalker.
The difference here is that all these iconic heroes have had many chances to return to the mainstream and get fans excited again, and now Willow is finally getting his chance. Let’s see if they can stick together when Willow debuts on Disney+ on December 30th.
