This Asian version of Harry Potter is making the audience excited.
The classic series about the magical world of Harry Potter once made the audience “wake up” with a series of different versions of artificial intelligence. From Japan to Vietnam, a number of fantasy versions from Asia of Harry Potter are of public interest and sharing. However, there is a country from Asia that has made a movie project with a theme and plot similar to Harry Potter to 90%. Only the cast of characters is completely different from the hit Hollywood movie.
Recently, the Indonesian film Alfa is becoming a topic of widespread discussion among audiences around the world due to its similar content to Harry Potter. The topic “Alfa Harry Potter” also received more than 41 million views on TikTok, in which netizens were surprised by the incredible similarity between these two works. The following are the Indonesian version of Harry Potter characters compared to Warner Bros.’s character image:
The male lead Harry Potter is not nearsighted, nor does he have any scars on his forehead. This boy named Alfa was treated unfairly by his aunt’s family just like the familiar male lead, then was saved by Hagrid.
The Indonesian version of Ron Weasley does not have the familiar orange hair, but instead has curly curly hair. Only his clumsy personality was preserved.
Harry Potter doesn’t have glasses, but Hermione does. The girl in the Indonesian version is also a “nerd” and talks a lot.
The version of Draco Malfoy is completely lacking in the handsome appearance and famous platinum hair, only retaining his childish, bold “villain” personality.
Uncle Hagrid disappoints the audience the most in the cast of characters when he lacks the hair and shaggy beard that make up the brand. In addition, this character in the movie also has many unnecessary silly scenes.
Dumbledore looks like a half-life in the Indonesian movie. Normally Dumbledore is quite friendly and peaceful, not so quiet…
Miss McGonagall also follows Dumbledore “in the spring”, and is the teacher of various subjects in the school. Her outfit is also considered to be more like the queen in Snow White than the magic school teacher.
Harry Potter’s Dursley family is also younger, but still has the famous admission letter burning scene.
Snape is a rare character in the film whose spirit is quite similar to the original, and his appearance also shows a part of the soul of the story.
Besides the main cast of characters, some other parts of the Alfa movie are similar to Harry Potter. For example, the scene where Harry Potter chooses his wand at the Ollivander store is completely recreated, only this person… sells fruit that turns into wands.
The sorting hat scene is completely “learned” from Harry Potter. Perhaps the hat is the most similar character, like a “copy of the original”.
