Synopsis

We meet orphan Harry Potter while he’s as yet unaware of his magical powers and is living a miserable existence with his horrible Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia. A mysterious letter arrives, delivered by the friendly giant Hagrid, inviting Harry to study at the exclusive Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy and he soon discovers his true heritage as the son of a wizard and a witch. He’s also gained widespread notoriety, being the only survivor of an attack by the evil wizard Voldemort that killed both his parents. The film explores Harry’s growing realisation that there are two worlds: the non-magical world of humans, called “Muggles”, in which he used to reside and the magical fantasy world of wizardry that is his destiny.

Trivia

Warner Bros. originally considered making the entire Harry Potter series as a set of CGI animated films, or attempting to combine several of the novels into a single movie. The studio’s reasoning mainly had to do with concern over the rapid aging of child actors-if production ran too long on any of the films, or if production was delayed between sequels, the leading actors might have to be recast. Author J.K. Rowling vetoed both the ideas of combining books and an animated film, so the studio decided instead to produce all seven (later eight) films back to back so the same child actors could play their roles in every film.

The filmmakers attempted to go the extra mile of matching the kid’s appearances to how the novel describes them, by fitting Daniel Radcliffe with green-colored contact lenses, and similarly make Emma Watson wear fake buck teeth. But when Dan’s eyes reacted strongly to the contacts, and Emma couldn’t talk clearly with the fake teeth in her mouth, these ideas were dropped.

The inscription around the Mirror of Erised says: “Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi”. Reading the inscription backwards it says, “I show not your face but your heart’s desire.”

The movie is known as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone everywhere except the USA and so every scene in which the philosopher’s stone was mentioned was filmed twice (once with the actors saying “philosopher’s” and once with the actors saying “sorcerer’s”) or redubbed (notably, one of the times Hermoine says it in the library, her face isn’t shown). The reason for this was to keep the films consistent with the book series: the US publisher, Scholastic, had changed the title (and corresponding text) to “Sorcerer’s Stone”. The title change was done with the consent of author ‘J.K. Rowling’, but she has since said that she regrets having granting permission, and as a fledgling author she wasn’t in a strong enough position to fight it at the time.

The child actors in Harry Potter would do their actual schoolwork in the movie to make the school setting more real.

Although Hermione, born 19th September 1979, is older than Harry and Ron (both born 1980) Emma Watson is the youngest of the three actors.

Quotations

Hermione: Now if you two don’t mind, I’m going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed – or worse, expelled.
Ron: She needs to sort out her priorities!

Hermione: You’ll be okay, Harry. You’re a great wizard. You really are.
Harry: Not as good as you.
Hermione: Me? Books and cleverness. There are more important things: friendship and bravery. And Harry, just be careful.

Hermione: Stop moving, both of you. This is devil’s snare! You have to relax. If you don’t, it’ll only kill you faster!
Ron: Kill us faster? Oh, now I can relax!

Hermione: Neville, I’m really, really sorry about this.
[raises her wand]
Hermione: Petrificus Totalus!
[Neville’s arms snap to his sides, and he drops to the floor, frozen stiff as a board]
Ron: You’re a little scary sometimes, you know that? Brilliant… but scary.

Ron: Wingardium leviosar!
Hermione: Stop, stop, stop! You’re going to take someone’s eye out. Besides, you’re saying it wrong. It’s LeviOsa, not LeviosAR!

Hermione: Honestly, don’t you two read?
