The Harry Potter film series is fairly faithful to the source material in the first two entries, but there are still many things that were either changed or dropped altogether. The Sorcerer's Stone starts the franchise in both the live-action and novel versions, but fans who have only ever seen the movie are in for a big surprise should they read the book. Quite a few scenes and events happen differently in the original material, while some things that were never included offer a detailed insight into life at Hogwarts.
It's interesting to go through the points that split the movie and book into separate paths because of how different the details will feel to those who are only familiar with the film.
