‘Harry Potter’ reunion trailer is here to take you back to the Wizarding World


HBO Max has unleashed a new trailer for Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, and it’s out to take you back to the Wizarding World you’ve come to love 20 years ago.

The 50-second teaser starts with a glimpse of the clock at the front of Hogwarts intercut with a clip of a woman reading the wizarding newspaper The Daily Prophet.

Her face is kept hidden from view, but she moves the paper down to reveal the top of her head, hinting that she’s Emma Watson portraying the wild-haired Hermione Granger.

The video then shows Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Matthew Lewis(Neville Longbottom), and Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley) receiving letters that resemble the acceptance letters Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry send to wizards and witches.

Capping it off is another mystery star—who, once again, appears to be Watson—walking down Platform 9 ¾ where Harry Potter and his friends board the Hogwarts Express.

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is a retrospective special headlined by the legendary Hogwarts trio: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson. It will feature behind-the-scenes footage, in-depth interviews, and cast conversations as they look back on all eight films of the franchise.

Hyping up the much-anticipated reunion are other fan favorites, such as Tom Felton, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, James and Oliver Phelps, Bonnie Wright, and Evanna Lynch. 

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is set to premiere on HBO Max and HBO Go on January 1, 2022.
