IT. IS. HAPPENING! That’s right Harry Potter fans, the original cast of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter is reuniting for a 20th Anniversary celebration with a special reunion coming to HBO Max. We aren’t the only ones feeling a little emotional over the Harry Potter reunion. Actress Emma Watson who played the fan-favorite Hermione Granger in Harry Potter has taken to social media to reflect on the upcoming reunion.
When Warner Bros. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone debuted in 2001, it was a massive success along with the seven other films to follow along in the franchise. And now, two decades later, we’re ready to celebrate our favorite fictional characters such as Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint), and Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton). While we may be part of the Harry Potter fan club, imagine the emotions the Harry Potter cast must be feeling after 20 years.
Emma Watson took to Instagram to reflect on the Harry Potter experience and what it means to her as the “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary Reunion” approaches:
Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favorite fictional character of all time. I think a journalist once said it was irritating how many times during an interview I mentioned how lucky I was and started counting… BUT I DAMN WELL KNEW!!! And still know.
I am proud not just of what we as group contributed as actors to the franchise but also as the children that became young adults that walked that path. I look at my fellow cast members now and I am just so proud of who everyone has become as people. I am proud we were kind to each other that we supported one another and that we held up something meaningful.
Thank you to the fans that have continued to show their support well after the last chapter closed. The magic of the world wouldn’t exist without you. Thank you for fighting to make it such an inclusive and loving place.
I still miss the crew who made these films all the time. Thank you for all of your hard work too – I know your contributions sometimes get overlooked.
Happy 20th Anniversary Potterheads! We hope you enjoy the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts which will stream New Year’s day, Jan. 1 on HBO Max. Lots to look forward to.
We feel this Emma! The “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” is scheduled to premiere on HBO Max on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2022. The feature will “tell an enchanting making-of story through all-new, in-depth interviews and cast conversations,” according to Variety. Check out the official teaser below:
