The Harry Potter book series by J.K. Rowling is one of the most popular book series ever. The Harry Potter movies, which were made based on the Harry Potter books are highly popular as well and have collected billions of dollars for the producers.

When the first Harry Potter movie – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – was being developed, only four books in the series had been released. In the following years, Rowling would add three more books to the series.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone release was in 2001. Set in the United Kingdom, the movie centers around an orphaned child named Harry who was brought up by a Muggle. Later, he found out he was a wizard, and another wizard – who shall not be named – was responsible for his parent’s death. Harry became entangled in the wizarding world, his life and story changed from there onwards.

Based on J. K. Rowling’s 1997 novel of the same name, the film was directed by Chris Columbus, written by Steve Kloves and produced by David Heyman. The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, with Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley, and Emma Watson as Hermione Granger.

There are plenty of iconic memorable moments from the Harry Potter series. But this scene from the first movie might be the one that fans quote the most. Hermione’s correcting Ron on how to say “Wingardium Leviosa” properly shows both of their personalities early on and hints at how significant it is when the two become friends later in the movie.
