Albus Dumbledore (professor of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry) goes to Privet Driver Road and meets Professor Minerva McGonagall (incarnated as a cat) and tells her about the deaths of James and Lily Potter. At the same time, Rubeus Hagrid brought Harry Potter, a 1-year-old orphan then, by flying motorbike. She placed the boy on the steps of number 4 with a letter to his only remaining relatives, the Dursleys. He said, "Harry Potter, good luck!"
Ten years later, Harry Potter is fighting a miserable life with the Dursleys. During a family outing for Dudley's birthday, Harry gets to visit the zoo. He accidentally released a snake and locked his cousin in the greenhouse. Harry couldn't explain this at all, and said it was like magic. Uncle Vernon angrily locked him in a small room. A few days later, he received a letter from Hogwarts sent by owl, only to be snatched back by Dudley. That Sunday, the Dursleys had a shock when thousands of identical letters flew into the house in all directions, breaking even the pieces of wood that Uncle Vernon had added to block the mail. To avoid as much trouble as possible, he moved to a hut in the middle of the sea, where no one knew where it was.
However, Hagrid finally found the Dursleys that night, Harry's eleventh birthday. An angry Uncle Vernon threatened him with a gun, Hagrid bent the barrel of his uncle's gun and handed him the letter he should have read earlier last week. It was a letter inviting Harry Potter to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Harry learned he was in fact a wizard, something the Dursleys didn't expect. Hagrid introduces himself as the lock and pantry keeper of the school he is about to attend. Despite his family's disapproval, he still followed him. And the first place he came to the wizarding world was Diagon Alley. Before that he had met many people who knew and admired him, and Quirinus Quirell.
After having purchased many things necessary for studying at Hogwarts including uniforms, a pet owl named Hedwig (Hagrid's birthday present) and especially a strange wand that has been waiting for so long. ready for him to buy it, Hagrid told him about his past; Harry is the son of two wizards who died at the hands of Lord Voldemort, an evil, powerful wizard, by a murderous curse, and Harry was the sole survivor of that curse, which led to fame. of him in the wizarding world as "The Boy Who Survived". Harry was then taken to King's Cross station to board the train to school. He made it to platform 9¾ with the help of the Weasleys.
On the train, Harry meets Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. He also meets Draco Malfoy, a kid from a wealthy family who later becomes Harry's biggest rival. At school, students gather in the Great Hall, where Harry and all the other freshmen are sorted by the Sorting Hat into four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Harry was assigned to Gryffindor along with Ron and Hermione.
At Hogwarts, Harry begins to learn magic and discovers more about his past and his parents. Harry was also selected to be on the Gryffindor Quidditch team as a Seeker, which is a rarity for freshmen. One night, Harry and his friends, after being tricked and nearly discovered by Draco Malfoy, discovered a giant three-headed dog named Fluffy in a restricted area of the school. They later discover Fluffy guarding the Sorcerer's Stone, an object that grants its owner immortality. Harry suspects that Potions teacher Severus Snape is trying to get the stone to return Voldemort to his human form. The children learn from Hagrid that Fluffy will sleep if he listens to music. After that, they wanted to see Albus Dumbledore, but he was gone (they suspect Severus Snape tricked him). At night, they decided to investigate if the Sorcerer's Stone was still there. They passed the Satan's Net, captured the flying key, passed the giant chessboard. In the last room, they found Professor Quirinus Quirell, not Severus Snape. Quirell took off his hood, and Voldemort was behind his head. Harry fights with him and almost dies from his strength. Griffindor won the House Cup.
