Ep-65 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001 film)

“You’re a wizard, Daniel Radcliffe!” one imagines Chris Columbus, director of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, might have said after casting Radcliffe for a role that would go on to define so much of his life. Join Luke Elliott & James Bailey as they return to Hogwarts as first years one more time to study the film based off the novel by J. K. Rowling before the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Gindelwald. 

Topics include: Other potential directors for the movie like Stephen Spielberg, the performances of Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint, as well as the adult actors like Alan Rickman, Warwick Davis, John Hurt, Richard Harris, and Maggie Smith! The guys also make a Polar Express connection, discuss the anti-bullying themes, react to the many changes Rowling has made over the years for her canon, compare troll-battles, and end by revealing their Ilvermorny Houses!
