Written by children’s author J.K. Rowling, the novel Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone celebrates its 20th anniversary of publication, launching one of the best-selling book series and film franchises in history. After 10 years of living in the cupboard under the stairs with his neglectful aunt and uncle, Harry Potter discovers he is a wizard and has been accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As he falls into a whirlwind of wands, potions, and spells, Harry also learns of his powerful destiny and the ultimate evil he must eventually face. This first film in the Harry Potter saga introduces the fantastical creatures, magical moments, and memorable friends of the series.
