Harry Potter in Troll

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket - Harry Potter - Fantasy - Fiction - NovelThe character Harry Potter apparently appeared in the 1986 film Troll starring Noah Hathaway and June Lockhart and directed by John Carl Buechler. Not the same Harry Potter, although both films do share a commonality in their use of magic.

Harry Potter (Noah Hathaway) and his family move into a new neighborhood, and Harry meets an old woman Eunice St. Clair (June Lockhart), who turns out to be a witch, and she and Harry enter the Troll’s fairy world to try and stop it from turning other people into plant pods. Compelling.

I’ve never actually seen the film, but I was reading about it on wikipedia and IMDb, and the entry on wikipedia says the Harry Potter in Troll is also a dark haired young boy about the same age as the Potter from J.K. Rowling’s novels, and he enters a world of magic and meets wizards and fights a troll.

Read about Troll on Wikipedia.

Supposedly, John Buechler is doing a remake of Troll, with the name Harry Potter still used for the main character.

My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine, Health.com., and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.

  1. Speaking of fantasy, have you ever heard of novelist Neil Gaiman? Personally, I’ve never read any of his books, but “Stardust” has been adapted into a film and is now out in theatres, starring Michelle Pfiefer, Claire Danes, and Robert DeNiro. Cinematical.com reviewed the film here

  2. I’ve never read Neil Gaiman, but I know he’s popular among the Sci-Fi, Fantasy crowd. I’d like to read his novels at some point. He has a personal blog as well. Google Neil Gaiman and you should be able to find it.
