The Harry Potter franchise has millions of fans across the world, and every single one of them has their own views when it comes to the best Potter movie.

Harry Potter is a worldwide phenomenon. With eight films to choose from, fans have their favorite scenes and characters that they hold dear.

But when it comes to the best feature-length about the boy with the lightning scar, a Reddit thread has revealed some interesting opinions.

According to Reddit, the all-time winner is The Sorcerer's Stone, the first movie in the franchise.

This may come as a surprise to some, considering the darker and more intense themes explored in the later films, but the reasons behind this choice are quite understandable.

The first part gave us the charming and innocent portrayal of Hogwarts. The film shows the grandeur and beauty of the magical world, from the Great Hall to the moving staircases.

The scene where Harry first steps into Diagon Alley is also a fan favorite, with the bustling market and quirky shops. It's not just Harry who makes his first steps in the magical world, but it's also us.

Another reason why fans consider the first film to be the coziest is because of the relationships between the characters.

The trio of Harry, Ron, and Hermione are just getting to know each other, and their interactions are filled with innocent banter and playful teasing.

The scenes in which they explore Hogwarts together, such as when they try to find their way to the Gryffindor common room, are heartwarming and endearing.

Finally, admirers of the universe appreciate the simplicity of the first film's plot. While later installments dealt with more complex themes of loss, betrayal, and sacrifice, The Sorcerer's Stone focused on the classic good-versus-evil plot.

The film's climax, facing off Harry and his friends against Voldemort, is a satisfying and triumphant moment.

And after the friends share their first victory against the Dark Lord and then say goodbye to their first year at the magical school, we all feel fuzzy and warm... and a tad bit nostalgic.

We're not crying, you are!

The first movie is simply a kaleidoscope of all the legendary moments that not only begin the story of Harry's confrontation with the Dark Lord, but also enchant us with the true magic of friendship and challenging confrontations.

Yes, they all escalated into an actual drama and heartbreak in later movies, but that's a different story...
