It's not really news that J.K. Rowling drew from multiple sources to create her Harry Potter series. It's not even news that there are similarities between Harry Potter and Star Wars. But now there's an infographic floating around the Internet that presents these similarities in an eye-catching—and jaw-dropping—way.

Rowling has said, "I haven't the faintest idea where my ideas come from." (Actually, Wikipedia has managed to source over two dozen influences and analogues.) When you see this infographic, you'll realize that Rowling must be more of a fan of Star Wars than she publically admits.
