Warner Bros. purchased the rights to the Harry Potter movies in 1999 for $2 million. That may sound like a lot, but here’s the part where we remind you that the Harry Potter movies have made over $10 BILLION at the box-office, which is a pretty good return on investment. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which takes you behind the scenes of the first film in the Harry Potter movies!

Before Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were cast as Harry, Hermione and Ron, Steven Spielberg wanted to direct an animated Harry Potter movie, with The Sixth Sense star Haley Joel Osment providing the voice of Harry. One of J.K. Rowling’s contract stipulations though was that every member of the cast be either British or Irish.

You Think You Know Movies is a ScreenCrush original series that dives deep into the cinematic worlds of your favorite movies and freeze frames a few tidbits you might not have known. We’ve already tackled Star Wars, The Avengers, and Spider-Man, but now you can grab your broomstick and get ready for these Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone facts.

Watch more installments of You Think You Know Movies below, and let us know what movies we should cover next.
