New ‘Harry Potter’ Featurette is Feeling Nostalgic

By  · Published on June 7th, 2011

My family has been friends with a children’s bookstore owner for years, so when we got an advanced copy of something called “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” I read it to give my feedback.

I thought it was poorly written and wouldn’t go anywhere. I was incorrect.

The books became the phenomenon, and the movies have translated that worldwide shared experience into something else entirely, but all that comes to an end this summer before someone at Warners decides to reboot the whole thing.

This featurette shows off the main three in their first screen test, and takes a look back at the cinematic journey that’s brought us to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Normally we wouldn’t post something as fluffy as all this, but the look on Rupert Grint’s face is priceless.
