The Harry Potter franchise recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, and HBO Max announced a reunion earlier this month to commemorate the milestone. While the prospect of a relaunch is thrilling, we are only getting a sneak peek at the event right now! The poster for “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” was just released by HBO, and it has Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint in the Gryffindor common room, surrounded by co-stars from all eight “Harry Potter” films!!
James and Oliver Phelps, Tom Felton, Evanna Lynch, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, and Bonnie Wright will join the three titular role players as co-stars. If you didn’t know, the organization is celebrating the release of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” the first film in the franchise.
This will also be the trio’s first reunion since the release of the eighth and final Harry Potter film in 2011. This is also the first time the trio will be joined by all of their co-stars from the whole franchise!! Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, and Evanna Lynch, among others, will appear on the show and give in-depth interviews about their experience on set.
Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid), Wright (Neville Longbottom), and Williams (Arthur Weasley) were shown collecting their handwritten invites and preparing to board the Hogwarts Express in a trailer released by HBO earlier this month.
Warner Bros. CEO, To Develop More Harry Potter Content
Ann Sarnoff, the CEO of Warner Bros., recently stated that the studio would like to create more original Harry Potter content.
The move comes after HBO Max made all eight Harry Potter films available for streaming earlier this year, despite the fact that the rights are technically owned by NBC’s Peacock.
Many Potter fans were curious if the series planned to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the first film version of JK Rowling’s beloved novels, which was released in 2001. The Fantastic Beasts spin-off series, The Cursed Child play, and a reported HBO Max original series were all inspired by the franchise, which produced eight hugely successful feature films and inspired the Fantastic Beasts spin-off series, The Cursed Child play, and a rumored HBO Max original series.
