Harry Potter Cast Reunion: CONFIRMED!
WE HAVE CONFIRMATION AND ITS BETTER THAN YOU IMAGINED!
When the clock strikes midnight this New Year’s Eve, the transition into 2022 will bring with it the HBO Max premiere of Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts. The retrospective special will feature stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson joining director Chris Columbus for a celebration of the beloved franchise.
It’s been confirmed that a cast reunion show titled Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is set to stream on January 1 on HBO Max in the US (a UK airdate and channel is still TBC).
#fuming because what could be more British than Harry Potter yet we don’t have a UK airdate?!
The special will feature a jaw-dropping list of franchise favourites – including main legendary trio Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson – as they return to Hogwarts to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter film.
Expect a nostalgic trip behind the scenes, with conversation covering the Potter legacy amongst other things, and watch out for never-before-seen clips too.
The special will touch upon all eight movies based on J.K. Rowling’s books and also will feature Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman, Jason Isaacs, Imelda Staunton, Tom Felton, Oliver Phelps, James Phelps, Mark Williams, Alfred Enoch, Bonnie Wright, Evanna Lynch, Ian Hart and more.
I AM HERE FOR THE RETURN OF BELLATRIX LESTRANGE.
I wonder if we will learn more about how she came to be the evil Bellatrix we all know, love and despise at the same time for killing Dobby.
“There’s magic in the air here with this incredible cast, as they all return home to the original sets of Hogwarts, where they began 20 years ago,” executive producer Casey Patterson said via statement. “The excitement is palpable as they prepare to take their fans on a very special and personal journey, through the making of these incredible films.”
Before the magic rekindles in January, the Potter-hub, WizardingWorld.com, will kick off the celebration with quizzes, videos, fan content, deep-dives and more. All will be unveiled on the website every Wednesday.
Following its premiere on HBO Max, the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary special will later air on TBS and Cartoon Network in spring 2022, ahead of the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
… I’m gonna need a bae for all this HP excitement for real.
Stay safe, take care and remember “It’s leviOsa, not levioSA!”
