Harry Potter has lived under the stairs at his aunt and uncle's house his whole life. But on his 11th birthday, he learns he's a powerful wizard -- with a place waiting for him at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As he learns to harness his newfound powers with the help of the school's kindly headmaster, Harry uncovers the truth about his parents' deaths -- and about the villain who's to blame.

Harry Potter 1 is a great introduction to the whole of Harry Potter without the books.
Looking back on it, this scene reminds me more of "The Chronicles of Narnia" than it does anything else concerning Harry Potter's world.
