A gate is left open in front of a cottage, is curtains fully *1a/8* drawn and its door blasted open. *1a/8* SYBILL TRELAWNEY (V.O.) (In a hoarse voice) The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord... INT. HARRY’S ROOM - THE POTTER’S COTTAGE - GODRIC’S HOLLOW EVENING *3D* *1a/8* *3D* *3D* *1a/8* *1a/8*

An infant (1-YEAR-OLD HARRY POTTER) stares at a hooded figure *1a/8* (VOLDEMORT). Light catches its face and Harry begins to cry. *1a/8* VOLDEMORT Avada Kedavra! EXT. THE POTTER’S COTTAGE - GODRIC’S HOLLOW - EVENING (31/10/1981) *3D* *3D* *1a/8* *1a/8*

Green light erupts from an upstairs room. Sounds of agony can be *1a/8* heard, both from Harry and Voldemort *1a/8* SYBILL TRELAWNEY (V.O.) ...approaches... The title “Harry Potter and the Philosopher ’s Stone ” fills the screen. EXT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - MORNING (1/11/1981) *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D*

A simple suburban house can be seen (4 Privet Drive) behind the *1a/8* title, baked on by the bright sun. A cat walks into frame and *3D* sits on the house’s brick fence. The title fades, leaving a shot *3D* of the house. *3D* CUT TO: INT. KITCHEN - 4 PRIVET DRIVE - MORNING (1/11/1981) Close-up shot of an extremely boring tie. The camera zooms out to see the reflection of VERNON DURSLEY, a man in his early 20s, in the kitchen mirror. The mirrored version of Vernon smiles to himself. He picks up his briefcase and walks over to his wife, PETUNIA DURSLEY, also in her early 20s. The kiss on the cheek he gives her is viewed through the mirror. Petunia notices the mirror and looks at herself and Vernon through it, smiling. A CLATTER and a splatter...

1-YEAR-OLD DUDLEY DURSLEY has dropped his bowl of cereal in protest. Petunia rushes over to help as... EXT. PRIVET DRIVE - MORNING (1/11/1981) ...the camera flies out of the room, past the cat still sitting on the brick wall, watches Vernon get into his car, past the many owls now circulating the sky... I/E. DURSLEY’S CAR - SURREY - MORNING (1/11/1981) ...and to the odd people dressed in cloaks... CLOAKED PERSON 1 The Potters, that’s right, that’s what I heard... CLOAKED PERSON 2 ...yes, their son, Harry... ...who move to show Vernon in his car, windows down, face covered with dread, shock and fear. CUT TO: INT. KITCHEN - 4 PRIVET DRIVE - EVENING (1/11/1981) Vernon walks into the kitchen. Petunia is busy making dinner. Evening. PETUNIA DURSLEY

Vernon replies, not with Petunia’s pleasant tones, but quite empty. Evening. A voice fades in. TELEVISION - JIM MCGUFFIN It’s not only the owls that have been acting oddly today. The television has got Vernon’s attention. Its screen fills the screen VERNON DURSLEY

TELEVISION - JIM MCGUFFIN (CONT’D) Viewers as far apart as Kent, Yorkshire and Dundee have been phoning in to tell me th a t t he y ’v e h a d a d o wn p ou r o f shooting stars! Perhaps people have been celebrating Bonfire Night early - it’s not until next week, folks! Finally, he decides to talk to Petunia VERNON DURSLEY Er - Petunia Petunia doesn’t look up, but replies. Yes? PETUNIA DURSLEY

VERNON DURSLEY You ha ven ’t he ar d f ro m you r sis te r lately, have you? Petunia stops everything she is doing and replies rudely. No. Why? PETUNIA DURSLEY

VERNON DURSLEY Funny stuff on the news. (He motions his hand towards it.) Owls, shooting stars, and there were a lot of funn y-loo king peopl e in town today. I thought, maybe, it was something to do with, you know, her lot. Petunia sniffs, in away of reply, and continues to prepare dinner. Vernon looks a little scared to say his next sentence VERNON DURSLEY (CONT’D) The ir so n, a bou t Du dle y’ s age n ow , wouldn’t he be, what’s his name again? Howard isn’t it? PETUNIA DURSLEY (Still making dinner) Harry. Nasty, common name, if you ask me. Camera starts to zoom in on Vernon, which is horribly unsettled VERNON DURSLEY Yes I quite agree.

We pass through the window... EXT. PRIVET DRIVE - MIDNIGHT (1-2/11/1981)

*12a/7* *3D*

...and all turns to night. The cat is still sitting on the brick *12a/7* fence. It is stiff and looking in one direction. The camera then shows that the road is deserted. It slowly lays to rest on one of *3D* the street lamps. *11/7* POP. Pause. Then a different POP as the lamp extinguishes. *3D*

The camera cuts back to the cat, which is now moving its head. *11/7* The lamp nearest the brick wall extinguishes with another pop. *11/7* The camera then cuts to an elderly man (ALBUS DUMBLEDORE) *3D* standing in the once deserted street, he is putting away an object which looks like a cigarette lighter (Deluminator). *11/7* Dumbledore sits next to the cat on the fence and, after a moment’s pause, turns and speaks to it. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE Fa n c y s e e i n g y o u h e r e , P r o f e s s o r McGonagall. The camera turns to see that the cat is transforming into a woman in her late 50s (MINERVA MCGONAGALL), wearing a cloak. *11/7* MINERVA MCGONAGALL How did you know it was me? ALBUS DUMBLEDORE My dear Professor, I’ve never seen a cat sit so stiffly. MINERVA MCGONAGALL You’d be stiff if you’d been sitting on a brick wall all day. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE Al l d a y? Wh e n y ou co u ld ha v e b ee n celebrating? MINERVA MCGONAGALL (Angrily) Oh yes , eve ryone ’s ce lebra ting, all right. Even the Muggles have noticed something’s going on. McGonagall points to number four, Privet Drive. *3D* *3D*

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE You can’t blame them. We’ve had precious little to celebrate for eleven years. Pause. McGonagall seems angry MINERVA MCGONAGALL A fine thing it would be if, on the very da y Yo u- Kn ow -W ho s ee ms t o ha ve disappeared at last, the Muggles found out about us all. (Pause) I suppose he really has gone, Dumbledore? ALBUS DUMBLEDORE It certainly seems so. Pause. MINERVA MCGONAGALL You know what everyone is saying? About why he’s disappeared? Dumbledore says nothing. MINERVA MCGONAGALL (CONT’D) What they’re saying is that night YouKnow-Who turned up in Godric’s Hollow. He went to find the Potters. The rumour is that Lily and James Potter are, are, that they’re dead. Dumbledore bows his head, McGonagall gasps. MINERVA MCGONAGALL (CONT’D) Lily and James, I can’t believe it. Dumbledore pats McGonagall on the shoulder. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE I know, I know. MINERVA MCGONAGALL (Sniffing) That’s not all. They’re saying he tried to kill the Potter’s son, Harry. But, he couldn’t. (Pause) No one knows why, or how, but they’re saying that when he couldn’t kill Harry Potter, Voldemort’s power somehow broke, and that’s why he’s gone. *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D*

Dumbledore nods. MINERVA MCGONAGALL (CONT’D) It’s, it’s true? After all he’s done, all the people he’s killed, he couldn’t kill a little boy? But how did Harry survive? ALBUS DUMBLEDORE We can only guess, we may never know. Pause. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE (CONT’D) Hagrid’s late. I suppose it was he who told you I’d be here, by the way? MINERVA MCGONAGALL Yes. And I don’t suppose you’re going to tell me why you’re here of all places? ALBUS DUMBLEDORE I’ve come to bring Harry to the only family he now has left. McGonagall is confused, but not for long, as Dumbledore looks up at 4 Privet Drive, and McGonagall is suddenly shocked. MINERVA MCGONAGALL You can’t mean the people who live here? You couldn’t find two people who are less like us. Harry Potter come and live here! Dumbledore speaks reasonably calm. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE It’s the best place for him. His aunt and uncle will be able to explain everything to him when he’s older. I’ve written them a letter. MINERVA MCGONAGALL A letter? Really Dumbledore, you think you can explain all this in a letter? Dumbledore still looks at the house and does not reply. Pause. MINERVA MCGONAGALL (CONT’D) How is the boy getting here, Dumbledore? ALBUS DUMBLEDORE Hagrid’s bring him. *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *2D*

MINERVA MCGONAGALL You think it (Pause) wise to trust Hagrid with something as important as this? Dumbledore turns on McGonagall,but speaks calm. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE I would trust Hagrid with my life. MINERVA MCGONAGALL I’m not saying his heart isn’t in the right place but... Suddenly, a RUMBLE is heard. MINERVA MCGONAGALL (CONT’D) What was that? McGonagall and Dumbledore get of the brick wall and look down the deserted street. The rumble is getting louder. When McGonagall *11/7* finishes her search, she looks to Dumbledore, who is looking at the sky. A giant motorbike is landing. On the motorbike is RUBEUS *11/7* HAGRID, an extremely tall man (half-giant) in his early 50s. He *3D* gets off, carrying a bundle of blankets. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE Hagrid. At last. *11/7* *3D*

*3D*

Hagrid looks down at the blankets. A 1-year-old Harry Potter is *1a/8* sleeping inside them. Dumbledore addresses Hagrid. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE (CONT’D) No problems, were there? RUBEUS HAGRID No, sir - house was almost destroyed, but I got him out OK. *11/7*

*3D*

Dumbledore and McGonagall observe the baby. It has black hair and *11/7* green eyes. On its forehead is a cut, shaped like lightning. *11/7* MINERVA MCGONAGALL Is that where...? ALBUS DUMBLEDORE Yes. He’ll have that scar forever. MINERVA MCGONAGALL Couldn ’t yo u do somet hing about it, Dumbledore?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE Even if I could, I wouldn’t. Scars can come in handy. (Pause) Well - give him here, Hagr id - we’d better get this over with. Harry is passed from Hagrid to Dumbledore. The three of them turn to face number 4, sadness over all their faces. RUBEUS HAGRID Could I - could I say good-bye to him, sir?

*3D* *3D*

Hagrid bends down and gives baby Harry a kiss, then lets out a saddened howl. McGonagall pats Hagrid on the arm. Dumbledore *3D* makes his way to the front door of number 4 and lays Harry on the *11/7* doormat. Dumbledore then takes out a letter and tucks it in *11/7* Harry’s blankets. Dumbledore walks back and the three of them stand silently for a while, staring at baby Harry. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE Well, that’s that. We’ve no business staying here. We may as well go and join the celebrations. RUBEUS HAGRID Yeah, I best get this bike away. G’night, Pr o f e s s o r M c G o n a ga l l - P r o f e s s o r Dumbledore, sir. Still moping up his tears, Hagrid gets back on the bike and departs. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE I shall see you soon, I expect, Professor McGonagall. McGonagall blows her nose in a way of reply. Dumbledore walks back out to road. He pulls out the Deluminator and clicks it once, all the street lights come back to life. He looks back at number four, Privet Drive , where a tabby cat can now be seen, *12a/7* slowly departing. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE (CONT’D) Good luck, Harry Baby Harry turns in his sleep, clutching Dumbledore’s letter. CUT TO: INT.

BLACK Suddenly a shrill voice is heard. PETUNIA DURSLEY (O.S.) Up! Get up! Now! SCENE A 10-YEAR-OLD HARRY POTTER wakes. It is heard that Petunia leaves and muddles around in the kitchen. Harry turns on his side. Through Harry’s P.O.V., muffled visions of a flying motorbike can be seen in front of the wall. Suddenly, Petunia voice can be heard again. PETUNIA DURSLEY (O.S.) (CONT’D) Get a move on, I want you to look after the bacon. And don’t you dare let it burn, on Duddy’s birthday. Harry groans and falls back onto his bed. INT. KITCHEN - 4 PRIVET DRIVE - MORNING (A LITTLE LATER) (23/6/1991) Harry is now serving the bacon to Vernon and Petunia ( both in their 30s). DUDLEY DURSLEY, an obese, blond, 11-year-old, is finishing counting the presents, but is displeased. DUDLEY DURSLEY Thirty-six. That’s two less than last year. PETUNIA DURSLEY Darlin g, yo u hav en’t count ed Au ntie Marge’s present. She points to the smallest present. DUDLEY DURSLEY All right, thirty-seven then. Dudley gets angry. His hands are both on the table. Harry takes his plate to the kitchen and continues to eat there. PETUNIA DURSLEY And we’ll buy you another two presents whi le we ’r e out t od ay.

Petunia goes to answer it. VERNON DURSLEY Little tyke wants his money’s worth, just like his father. ’Atta boy, Dudley! He ruffles Dudley’s hair, but Dudley isn’t paying attention. He has just unwrapped a remote control aeroplane and has dived for *11/7* another present. None of the telephone conversation is heard. *3D* Harry just continues eating and Dudley rips the wrapping of a *3D* cine-camera and a computer game. Petunia eventually comes back, *3D* both angry and worried. PETUNIA DURSLEY Bad news, Vernon. Mrs. Figg’s broken her leg. She can’t take him. Petunia jerks her head towards the kitchen, where Harry is still eating. Dudley finally looks up, his mouth open in horror; ripping the wrapping he had just been holding as he does so, sh ow i ng a go l d w ri st - wa t ch .

HARRY POTTER I won’t blow up the house. Petunia looks at Harry for a second, eyebrows raised. She then speaks her next words slowly. PETUNIA DURSLEY I suppose we could take him to the zoo... Suddenly a loud wailing noise is heard. Dudley has begun to fake cry. PETUNIA DURSLEY (CONT’D) Dinky Duddydums, don’t cry. And she hugs her son. DUDLEY DURSLEY I ... don’t ... want ... him ... t-t-to come! He always sp-spoils everything! Dudley gives Harry a nasty grin through his mother’s arms. Suddenly the doorbell rings. Petunia lets go of Dudley and he stop to cry at once. PETUNIA DURSLEY They’re here! She and Dudley rush to the front door. Vernon stays with Harry, making up his mind. VERNON DURSLEY You’ve managed to get your way. But (Pause) I’m warning you, (Pause) any funny business, anything at all - and you’ll be in that cupboard for a month. HARRY POTTER I’m not going to do anything, honestly... But Harry can’t seem to be able to mean the last word. As the sentence completes, the camera zooms in on Harry and a series of flashbacks begin.

Petunia tries to force a jumper over Harry’s head. It shrinks and *11/7* shrinks until it is so small it would fit a glove puppet. EXT. SCHOOL - MIDDAY *12a/7*

Dudley, PIERS POLKISS and some other of his gang are chasing *11/7* Harry. Harry tries to jump behind a bin, but finds himself on the *11/7* roof. *11/7* BACK TO PRESENT INT. KITCHEN - 4 PRIVET DRIVE - MORNING (23/6/1991) We return to the original scene, and Harry is rather unsettled I/E. DURSLEY’S CAR - SURREY - LATE MORNING (23/6/1991) BRRRMMM. A motorbike overtakes the Dursley’s car. VERNON DURSLEY ...roaring along like maniacs, the young hoodlums. HARRY POTTER I had a dream about a motorbike. It was flying. Vernon nearly crashes into the car in front. He turns around in his seat to look at Harry VERNON DURSLEY Motorbikes don’t fly! Dudley and Piers snigger. HARRY POTTER I know they don’t. Harry looks out the window. The camera looks in on him. HARRY POTTER (CONT’D) It was only a dream. The camera tracks away... INT.

...and pans down to a glass cage of the largest snake, a boa constrictor. It is fast asleep. Dudley runs up to it and presses his nose against the glass, then turns to his father. DUDLEY DURSLEY Make it move. Vernon taps on the glass, but the snake doesn’t move. DUDLEY DURSLEY (CONT’D) Do it again. Vernon taps the glass the glass again, but still nothing happens DUDLEY DURSLEY (CONT’D) This is boring. And he moves away, Harry, however, stays looking in on the snake relating to it. HARRY POTTER It must be really annoying. The snake then opens its eyes and slowly raises its head so that it is level with Harry’s. The snake winks. Harry looks around, then back at the snake. Pause. HARRY POTTER (CONT’D) Where do you come from, anyway?

*3D* *3D*

*3D* *3D* *3D* *3D* *3D*

The snake points its tail at the sign next to the glass. It reads *11/7* ’Boa Constrictor, Brazil.’ HARRY POTTER (CONT’D) Was it nice there? The snake points again to the sign. Beneath it is a smaller sign. *11/7* It reads ’This specimen was bred in the zoo.’ HARRY POTTER (CONT’D) Oh, I see... A loud shout can be heard from behind... PIERS POLKISS Dudley! Mr Dursley! Come and look at this snake! You won’t believe what it’s doing! Dudley rushes up to the snake’s cage. DUDLEY DURSLEY Out of the way, you. *3D* *3D* *11/7* *11/7*

And he punches Harry in the ribs. Harry falls onto the concrete *11/7* floor. Piers and Dudley lean right up to the glass then suddenly they become unsteady as the glass disappears. The snake uncoils *11/7* itself and slithers out of its cage, onto the floor. People scream and run for the exits. The snake goes past Harry (on the floor) and a voice can be heard... SNAKE Brazil, here I come ... Thanksss, amigo. And it slithers out the door; Harry follows it with his eyes, a little confused. INT. DURSLEY’S CAR - SURREY - AFTERNOON (23/6/1991) Vernon, Petunia, Dudley, Harry and Piers are all in the Dursley’s car, all looking a little scared and lost for words, except Dudley and Piers. DUDLEY DURSLEY Did you see how it nearly bit off by leg? But I shook it off... PIERS POLKISS I swear it was trying to squeeze me to death. The car stops at traffic light as Piers suddenly turns on Harry. PIERS POLKISS (CONT’D) Harry was talking to it, weren’t you, Harry? Harry is lost for words. Vernon turns and looks at Harry with menace over his face. INT. CUPBOARD UNDER THE STAIRS - 4 PRIVET DRIVE - LATE AFTERNOON (23/6/1991) VERNON DURSLEY Go - cupboard - stay - no meals. Vernon pushes Harry into his cupboard. Harry lies in bed, but doesn’t go to sleep. Remembered voices echo in head. YOUNG HARRY POTTER (V.O.) How did I get my scar? PETUNIA DURSLEY (V.O.)

Harry is now eating a single piece of toast at the kitchen table. *11/7* Vernon is reading the newspaper. Dudley looks hungrily at the *3D* bacon and eggs he is just being given by Petunia. She places *3D* Vernon’s on the table, and as she is just about to return to the kitchen, the NOISE OF LETTERS DELIVERED is heard. Petunia stops dead for a slight moment, then continues back to the kitchen. VERNON DURSLEY Get the mail, Dudley. DUDLEY DURSLEY Make Harry get it. Vernon takes down the newspaper and notices for the first time that Harry is in the room. VERNON DURSLEY Get the mail, Harry. HARRY POTTER Make Dudley get it. Vernon looks back at the paper and says plainly... DUDLEY DURSLEY Get the mail, Harry Harry looks at Dudley, who is shovelling food in his mouth, then leaves the room. INT.

He *11/7* picks them up and they are shown to the audience: a postcard *11/7* showing Isle of Wight and a fat woman, Aunt Marge, who looks like *11/7* Vernon; a bill; and a letter of yellow parchment with the words: *11/7* ’Mr. H. Potter, The Cupboard under the Stairs, 4 Privet Drive, *12a/7* Little Whinging, Surrey’ written on in green ink. Harry stares at *11/7* the letter, it is unbelievable. He turns it over to see a coat of *11/7* arms formed by a lion, eagle, badger and snake around an ’H’ on a *11/7* purple wax seal. Then...

VERNON DURSLEY (O.S.) Hurry up, boy! Harry is out of his trance and motions towards the door. INT.

It is separate to the bill and postcard now and he hands this to Vernon, who is still behind the newspaper. VERNON DURSLEY Marge’s ill. (Speaking to Petunia) Ate a funny whelk... But he is cut off by Dudley. DUDLEY DURSLEY Dad! Dad, Harry’s got something! Harry is shown to be just about to be unfolding the insides , but it is forced away my Vernon. HARRY POTTER That’s mine! He tries to snatch it back. VERNON DURSLEY Who’d be writing to you? Petunia looks at Harry and the letter, looking as though she thinks she knows this answer, but at the same time doesn’t want to know the answer. Vernon opens the letter and on first glance is frozen, and terrified. VERNON DURSLEY (CONT’D) P-P-Petunia! Dudley reaches this time. Harry just looks confused. Petunia, thinking she knows what it is, takes it from Vernon. She reads it for about 2 seconds and when she finishes, she looks as though she is about to faint, but chokes a few words. PETUNIA DURSLEY Vernon! Oh my goodness - Vernon! They stare at each other. DUDLEY DURSLEY I want to read that letter!

VERNON DURSLEY See, if they can’t deliver them they’ll just give up. PETUNIA DURSLEY I’m not sure that’ll work, Vernon.

VERNON DURSLEY That does it. We’re going away. Just pack some clothes. No arguments I/E. DURSLEY’S CAR - COAST - LATE AFTERNOON (30/7/1991) PETUNIA DURSLEY Wouldn’t it be better just to go home? Vernon ignores her, gets out of the car and locks Petunia, Dudley and Harry in it. A bolt of lightning is seen overhead. *12c/7* DUDLEY DURSLEY Daddy’s gone mad, hasn’t he? Raindrops fall onto the car. The doors are unlocked and opened as *11/7* Vernon arrives back, holding a long thin package. *12c/7* VERNON DURSLEY Found the perfect place.

He put a circle around it, making a cake. *12c/7* He looks at Dudley’s watch, which dangling over the edge of the couch, on his wrist. 11:58pm. He turns back to his cake, he marks in the candles. *12c/7* ...ten candles ... eleven. Harry looks at the cake quite sombre. *12c/7* He turns to Dudley’s watch. 11:59:56. :57. :58. :59. *12c/7* BOOM. The door shudders. BOOM. And again. Harry stands up. Dudley has woken up, looking around, scared. Vernon comes into the room, holding a rifle, Petunia bringing up his rear. VERNON DURSLEY Who’s there? I warn you, I’m armed! SMASH. The door falls down and Rubeus Hagrid (10 years older) *11/7* walks in. He says cheerfully... RUBEUS HAGRID Couldn’t make us a cup o’ tea, could yeh? It’s not been an easy journey... He picks up the door and puts it back in its place. Petunia and Vernon simply look at each other. Hagrid moves toward the couch where Dudley is paralyzed with shock. RUBEUS HAGRID (CONT’D) Budge up, yeh great lump. Dudley quickly gets off the couch and cowers behind his parents. Hagrid looks at Harry. RUBEUS HAGRID (CONT’D) And here’s Harry! Yeh look a lot like yer dad, but yeh’ve got yer mum’s eyes. Vernon gets his confidence back, gripping the rifle VERNON DURSLEY I demand that you leave at once, sir! Hagrid turns and takes the rifle from Vernon. He then easily bends it into a knot and throws it into a corner. Vernon makes a noise like a mouse being trodden on. *3D* *3D* *2D* *3D*

S om e s a y h e d i e d . Codswallop, in my opinion. Dunno if he had enough human left in him to die. Some say he’s still out there, bidin’ his time, but I don’ believe it. Most of us reckon he’s still out there somewhere but lost his powers. Too weak to carry on. There was somethin’ goin’ on that night he hadn’t counted on - I dunno what it was, no one does - but somethin’ about you stumped him, all right.

The goblin looks sideways at Hagrid, takes the letter, and skims it. RUBEUS HAGRID (CONT’D) Very well. I will have someone take you down to both vaults. Griphook! Another goblin (GRIPHOOK) makes his way forward. He signals them *11/7* towards one of the doors to the side of the hall. HARRY POTTER What’s the You-Know-What in vault seven hundred and thirteen?

Harry and Hagrid get out of the cart. Griphook unlocks the vault. Green smoke billows. It clears and suddenly Harry’s face changes to shock and mounds of gold, silver and bronze can be seen. All yours. RUBEUS HAGRID *12a/7* *12a/7*

INT. VAULT 713 - GRINGOTTS - LATE MORNING (A LITTLE LATER) (1/8/1991)

It has no keyhole. Griphook arrives, followed by Harry and Hagrid. GRIPHOOK Stand back! Griphook runs his finger over the door. The door melts away. GRIPHOOK (CONT’D) If anyone but a Gringotts goblin tried that, they’d be sucked through the door and trapped in there.

A BELL SOUNDS as Harry enters, Hagrid behind him, who sit down on *12a/7* a wooden chair to small for him. Harry looks around at the *12a/7* thousand of boxes, waiting... *12a/7* MR OLLIVANER (O.S.) Good afternoon. *12a/7* *12a/7*

Harry jumps. So does Hagrid. The chair which is on makes a *12a/7* crunching noise. Hagrid quickly gets off it. *12a/7* Mr Ollivander comes forward, old and pale and with long fingers. *12a/7* MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) I thought I'd be seeing you soon. Harry Potter. You have your mother's eyes. Ten and a quarter inches long, swishy, made of willow. Nice wand for charm work. Your father, on the other hand, favored a mahogany wand. Eleven inches. Pliable. Excellent for transfiguration. Well, I say he favored it, but it's really the wand that chooses the wizard. Mr Ollivander looks to Harry’s scar. MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) I'm sorry to say I sold the wand that did it. Thirteen-and-a-half inches. Yew. Powerful wand, very powerful, and in the wrong hands… Mr Ollivander backs away and brings out a tape measure. MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) Well, now. Mr Potter, which is your wand arm? HARRY POTTER Well, I'm right-handed. *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7*

*12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7*

The measuring tape measures from shoulder to finger, wrist to *12a/7* elbow, shoulder to floor, knee to armpit and round his head. *12a/7* While it does this, Ollivander searches for wands while saying: *12a/7* MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) Every Ollivander wand has a core of a powerful magical substance, Mr Potter. We use unicorn hairs, phoenix tail feathers, and the heartstrings of dragons. No two Ollivander wands are the same, and of course, you will never get such good results with another wizard's wand. The measuring tape begins to measure around Harry’s nostrils. MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) That will do. *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7*

Harry, feeling foolish, begins to wave it, but it is snatched out *12a/7* of his hand by Ollivander. *12a/7* MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) No, no - here. (He passes Harry another wand) Ebony and unicorn hair, eight and a half inches, springy. Go on, try it out. *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7*

One again, it is snatched out of his hand by Ollivander the *12a/7* second Harry tries to wave it, put it next to the other tried *12a/7* wand. *12a/7* The pile of tried wands mount. MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) Tricky customer, eh? Not to worry, we'll find the perfect match here somewhere. He looks for another wand, then pauses at his discovery. *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7* *12a/7*

Harry swishes the wand and out of it comes red and gold sparks. *12a/7* Hagrid claps. *12a/7* MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) Yes, indeed, oh, very good. Well, well, well… how curious… how very curious… Ollivander takes Harry’s wand and wraps it up. MR OLLIVANER (CONT’D) Curious… curious… HARRY POTTER Sorry, but what's curious? Mr Ollivander looks straight at Harry. MR OLLIVANER I remember every wand I've ever sold, Mr Potter. It so happens that the phoenix whose tail feather is in your wand, gave another feather - just one other. It is very curious indeed that you should be destined for this wand when its brother why, its brother (He looks up at Harry’s scar) gave you that scar. (He looks back at Harry) Yes, thirteen-and-a-half inches. Yew. The wand chooses the wizard, remember. I think we must expect great things from you, Mr Potter…. After all, He-Who-MustNot-Be-Named did great things - terrible, yes, but great. EXT. PADDINGTON STATION - LATE AFTERNOON (1/8/1991) Harry and Hagrid are eating burgers.

RON WEASLEY You said You-Know-Who's name! I'd have thought you, of all people HARRY POTTER I'm not trying to be brave or anything, saying the name, I just never knew you shouldn't.

But their conversation is ended when three people appear at the *12d/7* doorway (DRACO MALFOY, VINCENT CRABBE and GREGORY GOYLE) *12d/7* DRACO MALFOY Is it true? They're saying all down the tr a in th a t H ar r y P ot t er ' s i n t hi s compartment. *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7*

Draco looks to Harry, who looks to Crabbe and Goyle who look *12d/7* large enough to be bodyguards. *12d/7* DRACO MALFOY (CONT’D) Oh, this is Crabbe and Goyle. And my name's Malfoy, Draco Malfoy. Ron makes a cough to hide a snigger. DRACO MALFOY (CONT’D) Think my name's funny, do you? No need to ask who you are. My father told me all the Weasleys have red hair, freckles, and more children than they can afford. He turns back to Harry. DRACO MALFOY (CONT’D) You'll soon find out some wizar ding families are much better than others, Potter . You don' t wan t to go ma king friends with the wrong sort. I can help you there. He holds out his hand, but Harry doesn’t take it. *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7* *12d/7*

HARRY POTTER I think I can tell who the wrong sort are for myself, thanks. Malfoy steps back, withdrawing his hand. DRACO MALFOY I'd be careful if I were you, Potter. Unless you're a bit politer you'll go the same way as your parents. HARRY POTTER Why don’t you leave now? He glances at Crabbe and Goyle, much larger than him and Ron. DRACO MALFOY But we don't feet like leaving, do we, boys? We've eaten all our food and you still seem to have some.

The start-of-term banquet will begin shortly, but before you take your seats in the Great Hall, you will be sorted into your houses. The Sorting is a very important ceremony because, while you are here, your house will be something like your family within Hogwarts. You will have classes with the rest of your house, sleep in your house dormitory, and spend free time in your house common room. The four houses are called Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. (MORE)
