Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint & Emma Watson reuniting for Harry Potter retrospective on HBO Max
Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts will stream on HBO Max Saturday, Jan. 1.
Accio reunion! Our favorite magical trio is coming together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Original cast members Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) are taking part in a first-of-its-kind Back to Hogwarts retrospective special that will premiere on HBO Max in the new year, the WarnerMedia-owned streaming platform announced Tuesday.
In addition to reminiscing about their time spent making the eight-film and multi-billion dollar franchise, Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson will also explore the lasting global impact and legacy of the Potter series.
The actors are set to be joined by a host of other Wizarding World alumni like Chris Columbus (director of the first two movies) Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), James Phelps (Fred Weasley), Oliver Phelps (George Weasley), Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Ian Hart (Professor Quirrell), and more.
It's the largest gathering of Potter actors since the release of Deathly Hallows Part 2 in 2011.
“It has been an incredible journey since the debut of the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone film, and witnessing how it has evolved into this remarkable interconnected universe has been magical to say the least,” Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics, said in a statement. “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.”
“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. 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,” added executive producer Casey Patterson (A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote).
Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts arrives on HBO Max Saturday, Jan. 1. The special will also air on TBS and Cartoon Network in the spring just before the theatrical bow of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
