7 Movie Homes for Literary Aliens

These ebook aliens could totally hang with these movie creatures. A list in honor of World Space Week. #WSW2013

1. Star Wars

7 Movie Homes For Literary Aliens

In Buzz Aldrin and John Barnes’ Encounter with Tiber, the Tiberians are a species of furry (some bearded), ape-like creatures that walk on two feet. See the resemblance?

2. Avatar

7 Movie Homes For Literary Aliens

The Dedelphi in Sarah Zettel’s Playing God are incredibly tall and graceful aliens with leathery blue skin and sail-like ears. They’d fit right in on the planet Pandora.

3. Lord of the Rings

7 Movie Homes For Literary Aliens

The Tampy aliens in Timothy Zahn’s Warhorse are thin, delicate, and “hunched slightly forward in a caricature of old age.” They also have skin that is “a sickly, bedridden sort of pale.” They might as well be Gollum’s cousins.

4. Doctor Who

7 Movie Homes For Literary Aliens

In Dawn by Octavia E. Butler, the Oankali aliens are known to have two hearts—just like the shape-shifting Time Lord!

5. Planet of the Apes

7 Movie Homes For Literary Aliens

An Encounter with Tiber (Buzz AldrinJohn Barnes) probably wouldn’t differ much from an encounter with these highly-developed primates.

6. Harry Potter

7 Movie Homes For Literary Aliens

Thin and delicate-looking (but brave!), Dobby could easily be the magical version ofTimothy Zahn’s Tampy aliens in Warhorse, who are also into clothing accessories—one of them sports a “yellow-orange tartan neckerchief.” Fancy!

7. Toy Story

7 Movie Homes For Literary Aliens

Okay, so the only thing the High Ones in Across a Billion Years (Robert Silverberg) have in common with the Toy Story aliens is that they’re both green and have three eyes. But who wouldn’t want to hang with these little guys?
