The cast of one of the world’s most famous film franchises are set to reunite to celebrate 20 years of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are set to reunite to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone.
The wizarding trio have not been seen together since the last premiere of the franchise, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2, in July 2011.
They will be joining Chris Columbus, the filmmaker who directed the first ever film – Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone.
Cast members form all eight Harry Potter films will be reuniting for the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts special on HBO Max.
The special is set to premiere on the WarnerMedia streaming platform on New Year’s Day on January 2022.
HBO Max is set to stream all of the films and will “tell an enchanting making-of story through all-new, in-depth interviews and cast conversations.”
The star-studded event will include Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Tom Felton, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, Jason Isaacs and Bonnie Wright.
Emma Watson shared a throwback snap of herself with Daniel and Rupert in 2001 with the caption: “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.”
She added: “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.”
In another snap she shared a group photo of the entire crew on the set of the Harry Potter studios in Hertfordshire.
“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,” she added.
