  Potter premiere delights star audience
Updated 05 November 2001, 19.20
Daniel Radcliffe give the film thumbs up
The stars came out for the Harry Potter premiere and gave the Philosopher's Stone film top marks.

After seeing the film JK Rowling said: "It went wonderfully. I am so pleased, everyone seems to love it."

The Odeon Cinema in London
Most of the film's stars were there to see it for the first time, and many had grabbed the chance to take their children to a specially-decorated cinema.

Decorated like Hogwarts

The Odeon in Leicester Square, London was made to look just like Hogwarts with a massive banner for each of the four houses hanging from the front.

Music star Sting said: "My daughter and I have been reading them for years. I think they are wonderful literature."

Another famous face was the Duchess of York, who took her two daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

She said: "It is brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the girls loved it."
