Lovers of the Harry Potter series celebrate 20 years since the release of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” in theaters across the United States this Tuesday (16). The first film adaptation of the series, written by JK Rowling, the film is considered a phenomenon of children’s culture.
The production chronicles the first adventures of Harry, then an orphaned boy who lives with his uncles, in a “perfectly normal” family in the English countryside.
It is in “The Philosopher’s Stone” that he learns that he is a wizard of powerful descent and with a reserved seat at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – the centerpiece of the entire series.
The Chris Columbus-directed feature film grossed over US$1 billion at the box office, adding in first screenings and possible re-releases in different countries. Overall, the eight-film series – which ended in 2011 – grossed nearly $8 billion.
