Trailer For The Long-Anticipated ‘Harry Potter’ Reunion Has Finally Arrived!
The cast of Harry Potter is set to reunite for a one-off special to mark 20 years since the first film was released.
A new teaser for Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, which will air onHBO Max on New Year’s Day, was revealedon Monday, confirming that Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, the trio who played Harry, Ron and Hermione will return.
While the 50-second trailer gives little away, it starts with someone reading a Daily Prophet newspaper, with a front page headline saying: “Special edition: Hogwarts welcomes back alumni”.
It also sees Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid in the franchise; Matthew Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom; and Mark Williams, who played Arthur Weasley, receive invitations to Hogwarts.
The familiar Harry Potter music plays, as the trailer pans to a busy platform 9¾, the invisible station at London’s Kings Cross station where the Hogwarts Express departs.
Other stars including Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort), Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) and Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), will also be part of the reunion.
Return To Hogwarts will be released globally on New Years Day, January 1, 2022, on HBO Max. Plus, it will feature director Chris Columbus along with the movie’s stars, who haven’t been seen together since Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which was filmed back in 2009.
The special will focus on the Harry Potter legacy. Meanwhile, cast members will take fans on an exciting, emotional and personal journey through the making of the Harry Potter movies. Assumingly, it will follow the same unscripted style as the HBO Max Friends: The Reunion.
Emma Watson, 31, was one of the first to share the iconic news to her 61.6 million Instagram followers. She said that Harry Potter was ”her home, her family, her world” and that Hermione Granger is her “favourite fictional character of all time”.
So, who else will be in their bedrooms, making no noise, and pretending like they don’t exist on January 1, 2022? I Can’t wait for the incredible Harry Potter reunion at Hogwarts.
Stay safe, Expecto Patronum any negative energy and keep away from the nargles,
