Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Richard Harris This is the story of Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), an ordinary eleven-year-old who serves as a kind of slave to his aunt and uncle who learns that he is in fact a magician and is invited to Hogwarts School of Magic and wizards. Harry was cut off from everyday life by Robbie Coltren, the founder of Hogwarts, and quickly plunged into a world completely alien to both him and the viewer. Known for the incident that happened at his birth, Harry is easily a friend at his new school. However, he soon discovers that the magical world is far more dangerous to him than he could have imagined, and quickly learns that not all magicians trust him.
