A YouTube fan film pitting Star Wars’ fictional hero Luke Skywalker against boy wizard Harry Potter has gone viral, clocking almost eight million views since its posting in late April.

“Harry Potter vs Star Wars” by ‘RackaRacka” runs just over three minutes and features two YouTube actors dueling in a house and a street with their favored weapons – the wand and lightsaber.

Like the catalyst of the duel, a row over a phone charger, the amateur budget film is peppered with humor and nerdy silliness and has been viewed more than 7.8 million since its posting on April 28.
