Original Harry Potter Cast To Reunite For 'Return To Hogwarts'

Warner Bros. has confirmed that Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson are set to reunite for a special event marking the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone. 


Return To Hogwarts is a retrospective special coming to HBO Max, in which the actors who portrayed Harry, Ron, And Hermione on the big screen for eight movies will look back on their time in the Wizarding World. They’ll be joined by the original film’s director, Chris Columbus, as well as a number of other cast members. 


Similar to the HBO Max Friends reunion special, Return To Hogwarts will see the cast share their memories and explore faithfully reconstructed sets. Given the name of the production, we’re assuming the many halls and classrooms of Hogwarts will play a prominent role here. 


Even better, fans can look forward to this event while they nurse a nasty New Year’s Eve hangover. Return To Hogwarts will be available to watch on January 1 via HBO Max. It’s unclear when or where we can watch it in the UK, but if it’s anything like the Friends special it’ll be available on Now TV soon after its premiere. 

The highly-anticipated retrospective will be a capstone event of the holiday season, dropping as the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Day, January 1, on HBO Max. 

Other notable cast members expected to join Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson on the show include Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort), Gary Oldman (Sirius), Tom Felton (Malfoy), and many, many more. 


Return to Hogwarts will honor the magic behind the making of the films and the beautiful family created at Warner Bros. Studios London two decades ago,” a press release reads.

"It has been an incredible journey since the debut of the Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone film, and witnessing how it has evolved into this remarkable interconnected universe has been magical to say the least," said Warner Bros. president of global kids, young adults and classics Tom Ascheim said. "This retrospective is a tribute to everyone whose lives were touched by this cultural phenomenon-from the talented cast and crew who poured their heart and soul into this extraordinary film franchise to the passionate fans who continue to keep the Wizarding World spirit alive 20 years later."
