The movie adaptation of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling came out two decades ago. In addition to making Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson famous names, the Chris Columbus-directed film, which had its US premiere on November 16, 2001, also introduced many people who were unaware of the Harry Potter book series to the magical world of Hogwarts.
