Harry Potter and Friends Spotted in School Yearbook From the ’90s

‘Harry Potter’ vs. ‘The Lord of the Rings’ – Which Is Better?

In one corner, we have 'Harry Potter,' the wizard book series by J.K. Rowling that spawned eight movies and an international franchise, and put Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint on the map. Even after Potter and his pals finished battling monsters, evil sorcerers and, worst of all, school bullies, their story is still being read a million times over.

In the other, we have 'The Lord of the Rings,' J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece -- other than 'The Hobbit,' of course -- filled with epic battles, quests, magic and that creepy Gollum guy. Even years after the last book in the trilogy was published in 1986, the world of Middle Earth is still seeing new films being added to its legacy.

Behind-the-Scenes Footage of Ron and Hermione’s First ‘Harry Potter’ Kiss Released [VIDEO]

Because he has a sibling-like relationship with his costar in real-life, Rupert Grint was so traumatized by having to romantically kiss Emma Watson in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' that the actor has since repressed the experience. “I find it hard to recall anything about it," Grint told reporters. "I think it has been erased from my mind.”

Of course their kiss exists on film for everybody else to see, and in this behind-the-scenes look at 'Deathly Hallows' you can watch the pair brace themselves for the big moment, and learn about Watson's strategy to keep the number of takes at a minimum.
