I swear, I have more than Harry Potter (and other movie) soundtracks, but apparently shuffle was really into scores today. I’ll send the tag on to lazylaziel, dictatorblazefriendly-bully, denchlikejudi, crzykrly, lovehopetwist, thedespisedfemaleantagonist, and coeurastronaute. It’s just a tad embarrassing, but it’s fun. 


Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone (2001)

“You never told him? Never told him what was in the letter Dumbledore left fer him? I was there! I saw Dumbledore leave it, Dursley! An’ you’ve kept it from him all these years?” said Hagrid.

“Kept what from me?” said Harry eagerly. 

“STOP! I FORBID YOU!” yelled Uncle Vernon in panic.

Aunt Petunia gave a gasp of horror.

“Ah, go boil yer heads, both of yeh,” said Hagrid.

“Harry - yer a wizard.”

There was a silence inside the hut. Only the sea and the whistling wind could be heard.

“I’m a what?” gasped Harry.

“A wizard, o’ course,” said Hagrid, sitting back down on the sofa, which groaned and sank even lower, “an’ a thumpin’ good'un, I’d say, once yeh been trained a bit. With a mum an’ dad like yours, what else would yeh be?”


This is an exclusive reveal of a new image from the Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter in the cupboard under the stairs.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling, illustrated by Jim Kay, is out on 6th October 2015

Pre-order your copy RIGHT NOW!

No offence to Americans but it annoys me when people call it Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone! I realise it may not be my place to find it irritating but JK Rowling said herself she regretted allowing the American publishing company to change the name! It is what the books (and films) were originally called and I honestly think it sounds better! Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone links to Alchemy and is more original!

(Taiga’s note: no offense to Brits, but we didn’t ask for the books to be changed. i’m pretty sure the kids could have handled the British versions just fine. the publisher wasn’t right in thinking Americans needed it to be dumbed down for us!)
