Lovers of the Harry Potter series celebrate this Tuesday (16) the 20 years since the release of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” in theaters in the United States. 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, until then an orphan boy who lives with his uncles, in a “perfectly normal” family in the English countryside.
It is in “The Philosopher’s Stone” that he discovers he is a wizard of powerful descent and with a reserved seat at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry — the focal point of the entire series.
The feature film directed by Chris Columbus earned more than US$ 1 billion at the box office, added to the first screenings and possible re-releases in different countries. Altogether, the eight-film series — which ended in 2011 — grossed nearly $8 billion.
On this commemorative date for fans, take the quiz about the movie and see if you are an experienced wizard!
