Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (film)
An agent of Warner Brothers bought the movie rights to the film at a relatively low price soon before the book's incredible success. The movie was made at Leavesden Film Studios and released in 2001. The second, third and fourth books have also been made into films. The rest of the series will follow. It is planned that the rest of them will use the same main cast for continuity purposes, although it is commonly speculated that the child actors and actresses will eventually grow too old for their respective parts.
The film made in excess of $950 million at the worldwide box office (third only to Titanic and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) and received three Oscar nominations.
J. K. Rowling insisted that the entire cast be British, in keeping with the cultural integrity of the book and the movie. Exceptions are Irish character Seamus Finnigan (Devon Murray), Professor Dumbledore (Richard Harris is also Irish), and Madam Hooch (American-born Zoe Wanamaker).
She also approved the screenplay, written by Steve Kloves.
Harry Potter, a seemingly ordinary eleven-year-old boy, is actually a wizard and survivor of Lord Voldemort's attempted rise to power. Harry is rescued from his horrible Muggle relatives and takes his place at Hogwarts, where he becomes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
