Whether you’re 35 or 15, it’s likely that you grew up reading and watching Harry Potter. From the off, it was an international success and we personally cannot get enough of it. When The Deathly Hallows Part 2 came to an end and the credits began to roll I remember wondering how on Earth I was going to fill that Harry Potter-shaped hole in my life.
The Fantastic Beasts films have kept Harry Potter fans going all these years and we’re expecting Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore next year, which is incredibly exciting. However, even more exciting is the prospect of a Harry Potter reunion, featuring the original cast. That’s right, Hermione, Harry, and Ron are all back together again, albeit somewhat older (and with different hair).
Fred and George Weasley (James and Oliver Phelps) sit on the right, with their actual hair colour. Then there’s a pretty happy-looking Tom Felton who played Draco Malfoy and the lovely Evanna Lynch who plays Luna Lovegood. Obviously, the big 3 are at the forefront, and to their left are Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley).
If that weren’t enough to excite you, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, and Gary Oldman are also set to make an appearance in the reunion.
The trailer shows cast members such as Robbie Coltrane and Matthew Lewis receiving unexpected letters to Hogwarts, as well as Emma Watson boarding the Hogwarts Express ahead of the highly anticipated reunion.
The special will focus on the Harry Potter legacy. Meanwhile, cast members will take fans on an exciting, emotional and personal journey through the making of the Harry Potter movies. Assumingly, it will follow the same unscripted style as the HBO Max Friends: The Reunion.
Emma Watson, 31, was one of the first to share the iconic news to her 61.6 million Instagram followers. She said that Harry Potter was “her home, her family, her world” and that Hermione Granger is her “favourite fictional character of all time”.
So, who will be in their bedrooms, making no noise, and pretending like they don’t exist on January 1, 2022? Catch the nostalgic reunion on BINGE at 7:01pm AEDT.
We can’t wait for the incredible Harry Potter reunion at Hogwarts.
