Harry Potter Look-A-Likes Gather To Break A Record-More than 600 Harry Potter look-a-likes are paying tribute to the 20th Anniversary of the "Sorcerer's Stone."
A total of 676-students dressed as the young wizard in front of the Smithills Hall in England Friday. Each participant wore a Gryffindor tie, a lightning shaped scar, glasses and a wand. In the process, they set the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Harry Potter. Bloomsbury Books, who published the first book in the popular series two-decades ago, tweeted "We did it!"
J.K Rowling's debut novel was released in the UK on June 26th, 1997.
