  1. I prefer Star Wars… Having the force is better and having a lightsaber would awe us all out. Harry Potter on the other hand can be inappropriate such as in Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, Ron & Hermoine kiss too much! Star Wars wins against Harry Potter. There are different scenes in Star Wars and we see Luke Skywalker’s family base, as well as his generation and how he became a Jedi. Sheev Palpatine and his apprentice (who wants to take him down) Darth Vader EASILY rule out Bellatrix & Voldemort. Darth Vader against Luke Skywalker and Rey against Palpatine, Family against family makes it more suspenseful. For in Harry Potter, Voldemort against Harry? Not very exciting… I didn’t bother getting popcorn. Star Wars wins against Harry Potter.
