After Harry was Inprisoned in his room for the summer for ruining the dinner, Harry was in doubt of making it to hogwarts but his friend Ron Weasley takes him to hogwarts in his fling car but they get in trouble for being late and not taking the Hogwarts Express.
While Harry and his friends were at Hogwarts, weird cases of things and people being petrified but professors were trying to blame students but little did they know it was a giant serpent.
