An orphaned boy enrolls in a school of wizardry, where he learns the truth about himself, his family and the terrible evil that haunts the magical world.
The Wizard's chess set, with which Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Ron (Rupert Grint) were playing in the Great Hall, is based on the Lewis Chessmen, which date from the twelfth century. They were found in 1831 on a beach on the Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, Scotland. In all, ninety-three pieces were recovered, with eleven now residing at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, and eighty-two at the British Museum in London.

Some of the dubbed versions change the names of a few characters, to match their translated novel counterparts in each respective language. One good example is Hermione, who in the German version (of all the Potter films/books) is named Hermine.
