Not necessarily but Dumbledore wants Harry to forgive his abusers, claiming to McGonagall at the beginning that making Harry live with the Dursleys will make him humble and willing to sacrifice himself.

In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001), owls deliver letters to Harry's exact location, even when his family moves to a new place. A stranger tracks Harry down to this new place and approaches him in the middle of the night. Draco follows the trio to Hagrid's hut to spy on them.

There are two separate instances of self-sacrifice.

The first is Harry's parents dying to protect him from Voldemort.

The second is during a life-sized game of chess, a character sacrifices himself so his friends can win the game. He is knocked out but not killed.

A character is revealed to have been possessed the entire movie. It could be argued that this was an agreed upon arrangement, but he is definitely possessed in its most literal meaning. He has the other character’s face sticking out the back of his head and everything. I don’t know why people are selecting ‘No’ on this one, it absolutely happens and is a major plot point.

There is no vomit in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

HOWEVER!

After the quidditch match, Harry falls onto the ground and looks as though he is about to throw up (puffed up cheeks, holding his stomach). However, he does not. He does spit out a small object though. There is no audio.

I am the biggest emetophobe you'll ever meet and this was not triggering at all. Just wanted to add this.

Quirrell was described as wearing a turban (which have been worn in non-religious contexts for a long time, incidentally) in the original novel, which was published 4 years BEFORE 9/11. It was not included for propagandic purposes.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001) has a happy ending, aside from a brief mention of a very minor character nearing death.

NO CARS crash in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001). There is only a mention of two people dying in the past in a car crash, which is immediately revealed to be a lie.

Uncle Vernon is holding a shotgun when the door is knocked down in the cabin, but he only fires it into the ceiling as it is bent out of shape
