1) "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" (2001)

"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone".

Here's what Harry Potter looks like in "Philosopher's Stone"

  • Age: 10-11 years old
  • Daniel Radcliffe (as Harry): age 11
  • Grade: First year at Hogwarts

Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), who lost his parents 10 years ago and was sent to the Dursleys, receives a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry one day.

Harry did not know that he could use magic, but upon entering the magical world, he discovered that he was the only person who could cast a spell back at the "Dark Lord" Voldemort (Richard Bremmer).

On the train to Hogwarts, he befriends the pure-blood wizard Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint), who teaches him the various customs of the wizarding world. Meanwhile, Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) is a bitter, Muggle (human), honor student type, but all three have chosen to enroll in the same Gryffindor.

When Halloween arrives, the Hogwarts schoolhouse is attacked by an evil troll. This incident leads the three to realize that someone is trying to steal the Philosopher's Stone, which belongs to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and is believed to give eternal life...!

Harry's innate magical talent and sense of justice, which carry the wizarding world on their shoulders, are on display for the first time this season! And don't miss the scene where Ron and Hermione, who later become Harry's best friends, meet!

Harry had never heard of her, but with the help of Ron, Fred, and George, he is able to return safely to Hogwarts.

As the new term begins, a series of ominous events occur at Hogwarts. Harry, Ron, and Hermione try to uncover the truth behind the events, but Hermione also becomes a victim.

As Voldemort's shadow darkens in this film, the unexpected similarities between him and Harry are striking. The humorous appearance of the handsome and popular wizard Lockhart (Kenneth Branagh) is up close and personal, so be sure to keep an eye out for him (laughs).

The day before returning to Hogwarts, Harry is reunited with Ron and Hermione at the inn where Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), who escaped Azkaban from Ron's father Arthur (Mark Williams), is seeking Harry's life.

Fearing a Sirius invasion, Hogwarts is guarded by Dementors. Shortly thereafter, Harry hears that Sirius has betrayed Harry's parents and is bent on revenge . .

Back at Hogwarts, Dumbledore announces that for the first time in 100 years, there will be a competition between the wizarding schools. Hogwarts, Durmstrang, and Beauxbatons are chosen by the Goblet of Fire to represent the 17+ age group, but why is Harry, a minor, chosen as the fourth representative?

The competition thus takes place, but this person is beginning to move under the radar....

There are some heartwarming scenes depicting Harry's love life as an adult, but there are also many painful scenes for Harry, such as the breakdown of his friendship with Ron and Voldemort's return. I always fast forward to the tournament finals...

To counter the dark forces, Harry and his friends formed the "Dumbledore's Army," teaching practical magic and learning defenses against the dark arts. The time for a showdown with Lord Voldemort is approaching.

I am very angry at the way Umbridge has been treated ... (laughter) I am impressed by Harry and his friends' willingness to build up their own power and fight against wizards, without relying on adults. The death of Sirius, the only family member who supported Harry, is painful.

After Harry Potter, watch the fantasy series!

After watching the Harry Potter series, we recommend watching the Fantastic Beasts series. The worldview is the same as the Harry Potter series, but the setting is America. Also, the time period is 70 years before the Philosopher's Stone, so of course Harry and his friends do not appear.

However, to understand the world view, it is recommended to watch it after the Harry Potter series.

Order Movie Year of release
9 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2016
10 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' 2018
11 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Third Movie' (title TBD) 2022

All five films in the fantasy series will be published. Johnny Depp, who played Grindelbard in the first two films, has been touted as leaving the series, but who will be his successor?

Summary

Nineteen years after the release of the first film, the "Harry Potter" series still boasts strong popularity. Although it is slowly becoming darker and darker, it still leads the world of fantasy.

As the release of Fantastic Beasts approaches, it may be time to take a fresh look at the series as a whole. Watch out for subtle clues and magic, and you'll double your fun!
