It's also incorrect to say that the film was completely bankrolled by American companies, because it was co-produced by heyday films. — preceding unsigned comment added by ( talk ) 20:54, 7 September 2012 (UTC) quirrel edit It says that in the film version quirrel was "cremated" where harry touched him, but I seem to remember him being turned to stone. Alex 18:13, july 30, 2005 (UTC) If memory serves (I unfortunately don't have the dvd here to check he turned to a statue of ash that then crumbled, similar to (spoiler for interview with the vampire! Spoiler ahead!) what happened to two vampires in the Interview with the vampire movie. So he looked like a stone statue at first, but he was actually turned to ash like a person who'd been cremated. icarus 02:38, 18 September 2005 (UTC) I have the books and the films " quirrell's body was burnt so horribly that Voldemort dispossessed his body and left him to collapse and die. " m/wiki/Quirinus_Quirrell quidditch scene edit i seem to remember the scene where lee jordan, the announcer, good and McGonagall fight over the mic being in the theatrical version, but it was absent from the dvd, even the deleted scenes.
So really, the proper name of Philosophers stone should remain. Only in America did the publishers change the name to sorcerer's Stone. The rest of the world had Philosophers stone. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ( talk ) 15:45, (UTC) i agree with above. Rowling is British, the story line is British, it was set in Britain, The actors are British and therefore it should be kept as the British name! . ) —Preceding unsigned comment added by ( talk ) 16:30, (UTC) Just too bad. Perhaps American protestors should direct their efforts into educating their countrymen more on classical ideas and literature, one could feebly hope life is short, but the years are long!

Il —Preceding unsigned comment added by ( talk ) 08:24, 6 February 2009 (UTC) i understand the name problem with the us and I had two comments: The imdb page uses "Sorceror's Stone" in the title and the page heading, so the imdb template title. Can we get a poster for the uk version to use in the infobox? It's a little confusing to see "Philosopher" in the infobox banner and "Sorceror" in the poster. dropDeadGorgias (talk) 17:50, may 11, 2005 (UTC) ok, i was able to find the uk poster, so i made these changes. I'm still not thrilled with the formatting of the page, as the three images are hard to place on the page without muddling everything up, so if you have any suggestions on better layouts, please be bold and implement them.
dropDeadGorgias (talk) 18:02, may 11, 2005 (UTC) It's Sorcerer, not Sorceror. Later let's talk 21:17, 13 november 2007 desk (UTC) Not sure where to put it, but in talking about Harry's being given to the dursleys, it should say "Dursleys not "Dursley's." —Preceding unsigned comment added by ( talk ) 06:27, (UTC) The original title of the. If you reference "Sorcerer's Stone" on wikipedia, you will be redirected to "Philosopher's Stone".

Yes, that was the whole point - the reason Harry saw the thestrals is because he saw Cedric's death at the end of gof, not because he saw quirrell "die" in the first book. There is no inconsistency, you're correct on that point. Ugen64 01:36, aug 21, 2004 (UTC)There will be an inconsistency if the explanation for seeing the Thestrals (sp?) remains true to the book.
In the book universe, one can see the Thestrals after they have witnessed and had time to understand a death. In the movie universe, it will be four years since harry saw someone die, and never saw the Thestrals in the intervening time. MrItty 14:46, (UTC)The fifth movie has been released, and Luna lovegood explains about the Thestrals to harry. She only says that, to see a thestral, one must "see the death or something like that. But I think, beyond that, that one must see someone you care about dying, which would explain why harry sees the Thestrals after Cedric died, and not after quirrell died, 'cause he didn't care about quirrell. Later let's talk 21:16, 13 november 2007 (UTC) Name inconsistencies edit not to beat a dead horse, but this really should be "Harry potter and the sorcerer's Stone."

The score features many themes, the main theme, or Hedwig's Theme, being featured at the beginning of every harry potter film so far.

Request for Mediation edit parties in support of changing the title also sought relief from the mediation Committee - see wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Harry potter and the Philosopher's Stone (film). The case was rejected after about 5 hours, as the involved parties did not agree to mediation. Request for Arbitration edit parties in support of the title change also sought relief from the Arbitration Committee - see sorcerer's Stone.

The discussion included approximately 25 participants, with 2 participants debating in support of changing the title to sorcerer's Stone, 22 debating against, and one neutral.

Further actions edit Administrator's Noticeboard / Incidents edit In mid-January 2008, some of the parties in support of the title change sought relief from the Administrator's Noticeboard of Incidents - see harry potter and the sorcerer's Stone.
