Orfano di due maghi (ma lui non lo sa), passati i primi dieci anni della sua vita relegato nel sottoscala della casa degli zii, che non sono molto teneri con lui, Harry Potter compie 11 anni e riceve la visita di un gigante che gli rivela i suoi natali e l'origine della strana cicatrice a forma di saetta che ha sulla fronte e che provoca strani fenomeni. Invitato a entrare nella scuola di magia di Hogwarts, il ragazzino scopre l'esistenza di un altro mondo, diverso da quello in cui ha vissuto fino a quel momento, un mondo fatto di fantasia e magia, di scope volanti, cappelli parlanti e ritratti che fuggono, draghi e gufi portalettere.
