It’s back to school time for these witches and wizards! The Harry Potter cast will reunite in 2022 for a special to celebrate 20 years of Wizarding World movies.
Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is a retrospective special that will tell fans how Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone, to anyone across the pond) came to enchant viewers across the globe. The reunion will start streaming on HBO Max less than two months after the 20th anniversary of the film, which hit U.S. theaters on November 14, 2001.
“For reunions, it’s hard because everyone lives in different parts of the world now,” the Opposite of Butterfly Hunting author exclusively told Us Weekly in June. “There’s a few of them in L.A. and then a good lot of us in London. I believe Matthew [Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom] in Florida. But I do see some of them. … So there’s like mini reunions, but I think it would take a Warner Bros. operation to get everyone together.”
Watson, 30, wrote a lengthy message after she was confirmed to take part in the reunion, teasing that there was “lots to look forward to” in the special and sharing some memories of her time with the franchise.
