Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Richard Harris | This is the story of Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), an ordinary eleven year old boy who acts as a kind of slave to his aunt and uncle and is told that he is actually a magician and is invited to attend Hogwarts and the Magic School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry is pulled out of his daily life by Rubeus Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane), Hogwarts’ ground floor, and quickly thrown into a world that is completely alien to him and the viewer. Harry is known for the birth event and easily makes friends at his new school. But he soon realizes that the wizarding world is far more dangerous to him than he would have imagined, and he quickly knows that not all wizards are the ones you can trust.
