Are you the brightest like Hermione Granger? Or rather a loyal and courageous friend like Ron Weasley? Even if you are half a werewolf, like Professor Lupine, you are all invited to the 20th anniversary of the movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Released in November 2001, this first Harry Potter film opened the door to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter by JK Rowling. This year, Harry Potter’s official global community, Wizarding World Digital, is preparing a special celebration for Potterheads around the world.
Celebration of 20 years of the magic of cinema
From the first day Harry Potter was premiered on the big screen, the magic remains in viewers. Now, 20 years later, Wizarding World will bring you back to the top 20 moments of Harry’s first adventure. There will be 20 stages that will be celebrated by November. Each week, Wizarding World will post an iconic scene from the film on its website.

This Hogwarts moment causes Harry to switch from hisdreading life in Dursleys 4 Privet Drive. Although it was never easy for Harry to leave his uncle and aunt’s house. They still seemed to find a way to stop Harry from leaving. We remember the excitement when hundreds of flying letters burst into the Dursleys’ house.

This celebration is more special because we get to know how they “cook” the scene. Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima of MinaLima, the behind-the-scenes graphics team, share how they created Harry’s letter to Hogwarts. Best of all, this is just the start! Next week, we’ll see the Return to Hogwarts moment as Harry boards the Hogwarts Express at 11 a.m. via Platform 9 3/4. Wizarding World invites us all to join the countdown to the start of the Hogwarts Express live.
This interactive countdown and celebration will take place on September 1 on the Wizarding World YouTube channel starting at 10:30 a.m. BST or 5:30 p.m. Singapore time. Head over to their social media to find the Platform 9 3/4 interactive Instagram filter and post it to your Instagram Story!
