  29. Eugene Blythe says

    Gandalf ~~~~~~~

  30. Josué Araya says

    oh dear lord… Lord of the Rings book was first!!! and Gandalf is over 2000 Dumbledore is around 100(max), golum is over 500 and Voldemort around 60, Hagrid around 50 and Gimli I'm not sure…probably older too 😛

  39. Daniel Malikov says

    Ages? As if LOTR was at least 50 years ago.

    + Josué Araya I think dwarfs get to be pretty old too. Gimli went to the Dragon with Bilbo long before LOTR, if I remember correctly.

  40. Luis Laurens says

    + Josué Araya He did? You sure? You just spoiled the book to me, thanks ¬¬

  41. John Wilkinson says

    Ha! I mock Harry Potter movies for stealing the look of Gandalf.

  42. Phillip Petty says

    + John Wilkinson
    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone – November 16, 2001
    Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring – December 19, 2001

    The look chosen for both is a stereotype for their type of character that has been around for centuries anyways.

  43. Amanda Blain says

    ^^^^ This 🙂

  44. Bipin Dhanani says

    Dobby would be a Better choice for Gollum's Son…

  45. Jazz GodlyElephant says

    lol, this is really funny, gollum is totaly his son! look at the resemblance!

  46. Sonny Williamson says

    + Phillip Petty Actually, the fantasy stereotypes of wizards, elves, dwarves, orcs etc, were largely invented by Tolkein. His influence on the genre was so profound that the popular perception of these tropes in modern culture can almost always be traced back to his writing. He took inspiration from various myths and legends from Norse, British and European culture and solidified them to create an English mythology which he felt was lacking. J.K. Rowling in particular owes him a not-insignificant debt, as this post shows.

  47. Vader Dawg says

    They look like brothers on the other way round whereby Gandalf is 4000 yrs old than ….

  48. Daniel Malikov says

    + Sonny Williamson Actually, Tolkien was a folklorist, and he used early medieval stereotypes for his characters, not the ones from Barocco.

  49. Lautaro Andrade says

    JAJAJAJAJAJA, morí! xD

  50. Jyoti Priya says

    ha ha………… really nice

  51. Phillip Petty says

    Well, said + Sonny Williamson. Tolkein was indeed a large influence on the solidification of the 'gandalf' look. It still stands that it is a generic wizard look that has been around since at least the middle ages.

    All this talk is funny though, especially most everyone's disregard for the existence of books. I know I sort of did too, but I was responding to a comment regarding the movies, so yeah.

    Also, + Josué Araya, Hagrid is in his 60s. He would have started school at 11, like HP. He was expelled in his 3rd year (I believe that is the correct year, could be wrong), so at about age 13. In the second book, it is made clear that the year he was expelled was exactly (or near to) 50 years ago. So in the second book, he is almost assuredly 63 years old.
    Gimli, as I have read, is supposed to be 139 at the time the fellowship headed out, so you are correct on the age issue. I think the joke was going more on looks though.

  109. nasrath rosy.s says

    well watched,ha ha ha

  110. Conrad Dunkerson says

    Corrections and elaboration on some of the other comments:
    1 – The Lord of the Rings was published in 1954, Harry Potter in 1997.
    2 – Gandalf spent about 2000 years in Middle-Earth, but his actual 'age' was incalculable… he predated the creation of the world and 'Time' itself.
    3 – Gollum found the Ring in 2463, about 555 years prior to the events of the books. He was a young adult when he found it, and thus ~585 +/- 10 years old in total.
    4 – Gimli was born in 2879 and thus about 140 years old in the books. He was not involved in Bilbo's quest, rather that was his father, Gloin.

    So yes, the LotR characters are much older in both conception and fictional age than their supposed 'parents' in the image. All were based on historical archetypes, but largely responsible for these becoming staples of fantasy fiction… and thus 'ancestors' of the Potter characters.

  111. mel rowlett says

    ^^^^^I don't think anyone cares^^^^^^^ It's still awesome enjoy life don't kill it.

  112. Mitchell Wadsworth says

    the 2nd row dont make sense the dads a midget and the sons a giant :S

  113. clifford lowe says

    Well, since no one seems to have mentioned it, Hagrid is a half-giant (8'6") animal trainer, while Gimli is a dwarf (4'6"-5") axe wielding warrior. Once you take that into account the similarity is reduced to both being stocky characters with long scruffy brown hair and beards.

    cool movie

  130. Luke Harkleroad says

    -1 All three LotR characters are at least double the age of the HP 'counterparts'. Also, Gimly – Hagrid? REALLY? I mean, one is a dwarf and the other is a Giant! Come on, man!

    thats gud think

  138. Sonny Williamson says

    + Conrad Dunkerson I didn't really want to get into Olorin being a Maiar spirit, felt it was a little too geeky for the 'weekend nerds'. Still spot on.

    In other news; Oy, these comments. o_O

  139. Brendan Foley says

    Lord of the Rings takes place in a greatly distant past. There is some indications in C.S. Lewis' "Space Trilogy" that it, in fact, kinda happens in a forgotten past of our world. There are other indications it does not, but either way, it's a distant past.
    Harry Potter takes place in modern day.
    Lord of the Rings characters would not be the fathers, they would be the distant ancestors of anyone in Harry Potter if the connection were to be made.
    Not only that, but NONE of the Lord of the Rings characters selected are even human (Gandolf is a Maia [which is essentially a lesser angel], Gimli a dwarf, Gollum… weird other thing somehow related to hobbits?), whereas all the characters on the Harry Potter side are humans (ok, Hagrid is half giant, but that's rather different from a dwarf).

    Likewise, the Lord of the Rings Books, and other middle earth writings were written and published decades before the Harry Potter books. In fact, Tolkien was dead decades before Harry Potter was written.

  140. Sonny Williamson says

    And with that, I do believe all the honest-to-goodness pure geek details have been addressed.

    Having said all that … funny pic, lol

  141. John Thompson says

    + Sonny Williamson needs to be open up his schedule to help Peter Jackson on his yet-to-be-even-really-conceived "War of the Silmarils …" sendup … +1 to you, ubergeek, and I say that in the fondest way possible! 🙂
