13 Reasons Halloweentown’s Kalabar And Harry Potter’s Voldemort Are Actually The Same Villain

For starters, both need to take chill pills

It's time to face facts, people. Kalabar from Halloweentown and Voldemort from Harry Potter are two villainous peas in an evil pod, and I'm not the only one who thinks this. Several others have spoken the truth, and the rest of the world needs to wake up and smell the butterbeer.

Still not convinced? Check out the rock-solid, definitive proof below and prepare to write me a one-page apology letter when you're done.

  1. They're both wizards.

    And evil ones, at that.

  3. They're important leaders in their communities.

    Kalabar leads the creatures, while Voldemort leads the Death Eaters.

    *Sigh*

  5. October 31 is a huge day for them.
    Disney

    Voldemort murdered Harry's parents on Halloween, and Kalabar lived in a place called, uh, Halloweentown.

  6. Both make a kid do half of their dirty work.

    Poor Luke and Malfoy; they didn't stand a chance.

  7. They're each obsessed with the purity of race.

    Kalabar viewed the creatures as better than humans, while Voldemort saw Muggles as below those from strong wizard families.

  8. They've fathered secret children.
    Disney

    Kalabar had Kal in Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge, and Voldemort had Delphi in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

  9. And those children followed in their father's dastardly footsteps.

    Kal cast the forbidden Creature Spell on unsuspecting humans, while Delphi did everything she could to prevent her father's ultimate demise.

  10. Kalabar and Voldemort were forced into hiding because, you know, they're evil.
    Disney

    While ol' Voldy had to hide in the shadows, Kalabar felt like the humans forced the creatures to live in another dimension.

  11. And both were defeated by a plucky kid who didn't take their shit sitting down.
    Disney / Warner Bros.

    Never underestimate an underdog.

  12. They enjoyed terrifying small children.
    Warner Bros.

    People on Twitter admitted to being frightened of Kalabar, and actor Ralph Fiennes (who played Voldemort) confessed he made a kid burst into tears while in costume. Savage.

  13. Lastly, they used phallic symbols to assert dominance.
    Disney / Warner Bros.

    And failed horribly.
