Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Richard Harris | This is the story of Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), an ordinary 11-year-old boy who serves as a kind of slave to his aunt and uncle who discovers that he is actually a wizard and is invited to study at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Hogwarts. Harry was kidnapped by Rubeus Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane), a Hogwarts gardener, for a mundane existence and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to him and the viewer. Known for the incident that occurred at his birth, Harry easily makes friends at his new school. He soon learns, however, that the wizarding world is far more dangerous for him than he could have imagined, and he quickly learns that not all wizards are reliable.
