Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Synopsis: This is the tale of Harry Potter, an ordinary 11-year-old boy serving as a sort of slave for his aunt and uncle who learns that he is actually a wizard and has been invited to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer. Famous for an incident that happened at his birth, Harry makes friends easily at his new school. He soon finds, however, that the wizarding world is far more dangerous for him than he would have imagined, and he quickly learns that not all wizards are ones to be trusted.

Afraid I sat on it, but I imagine|it'll taste fine just the same.

Baked it myself, words and all.

Thank you.

It's not every day your young man|turns 11, is it?

Excuse me, but who are you?

Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys|and Grounds at Hogwarts.

- Of course, you know about Hogwarts.|- Sorry, no.

Didn't you ever wonder where|your mum and dad learned it all?

Learned what?

You're a wizard, Harry.

- I'm a what?|- A wizard.

A good one, I'd wager,|once you're trained up.

No, you've made a mistake.|I mean...

...I can't be a wizard.

I mean, I'm just Harry. Just Harry.

Well, Just Harry, did you ever|make anything happen?

Anything you couldn't explain,|when you were angry or scared?

"Dear Mr. Potter,|We are pleased to accept you...

...at Hogwarts School|of Witchcraft and Wizardry."

He will not be going! We swore|we'd put a stop to all this rubbish.

You knew? You knew all along|and you never told me?

Of course we knew.|How could you not be?

My perfect sister being who she was.

My mother and father were so proud|the day she got her letter.

"We have a witch in the family.|Isn't it wonderful?"

I was the only one to see her|for what she was.

A freak!

Then she met that Potter,|and then she had you...

...and I knew you would be the same.|Just as strange, just as abnormal.

And then she got herself blown up,|and we got landed with you.

Blown up? You told me|my parents died in a car crash.

A car crash? A car crash killed|Lily and James Potter?

- We had to say something.|- It's an outrage! A scandal!

He'll not be going.

A great Muggle like you|is going to stop him?


Non-magic folk. This boy's had|his name down since he were born.

He's going to the finest school|of witchcraft and wizardry.

He'll be under the finest headmaster|Hogwarts has seen, Albus Dumbledore.
