Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone arrived in 2001, kicking off one of the most profitable and popular movie series of the past decade. Based on the first novel in the series of books written by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone narrated the adventures of a very special orphan: Harry Potter, the "child who survived".

Behind this gloomy nickname, Harry's story was built around a family tragedy that had left him without parents being a baby, having to be raised by his unloving uncles, the Dursleys. Harry grew up knowing nothing of this until his eleventh birthday when he discovered that his past and its origin had been hidden from him. He was actually a magician and was destined to study at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where almost all the sorcerer's children from the United Kingdom went. Thus began a trip not free of danger throughout eight films, which would develop his transit to maturity.

But returning to Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone, with this film we are facing an ambitious project in which Warner Bros put a lot of meat on the grill so that nothing went wrong.

The bet did not go wrong. Warner invested 125 million dollars and raised almost eight times as many, 975 million. The critics applauded it unilaterally and it is the second-best valued delivery of the entire saga, being the most successful Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Much of the success of Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone derives precisely from the care that was taken in making this film. In fact, Warner had been giving many blind sticks until it began its development, looking for ways to adapt the little wizard's adventures to movies. One of them, by the way, went through Steven Spielberg, who wanted to have made an animated film, with Haley Joel Osment bending Harry. However, in the end, they ended up opting for a real action movie, trusting Chris Columbus, a man who as a producer and screenwriter had also worked in the genre of children's films, such as The Goonies.

So that the thing also worked, a screenwriter who knew how to adapt Rowling's books was sought. This was Steve Kloves, who would remain as a writer of the screenplays of the sequels. For this movie, Kloves would dispense with Warner's notes and work on the original book. This sought to capture the book with a high fidelity index, forgiving the minimum licenses to expedite the development of the film.

Did you know that Alan Rickman was the only one of the whole cast who knew how books would end before they were published and what secret Snape hid? Apparently, J.K. Rowling secretly trusted him to help her prepare the paper. Hence, the actor sometimes did things that were not in the script or did things that we did not expect, since he acted accordingly, he knew everything behind.

On the other hand, it also has some flaws, such as the fact that precisely because it wants to be so simple, it falls to one of the sins of the series, as its simplicity when presenting Manichaean antagonists. In addition, it stings the fact that they portray the character of Ron as a dummy for the benefit of Hermione. But, perhaps the hardest part of the film is the fact that it lasts two and a half hours long, which in some cases can be heavy.

In any case, we must say that Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone is one of the most solid films of the anthology. Also the most fun, honest and complete. Oh, and one that also has a fairly lucid John Williams, with one of his freshest composing works in a long time.
