‘Harry Potter: Back to Hogwarts’ arrived in the catalog of HBO Max on the first day of 2022 and won over fans around the world for its intimate and quite nostalgic character.
For the first time since’Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2′, the cast gathered bringing various curiosities and memories about the ten years they worked in the adaptations, between 2001 and 2011.
The reunion was so magical that Emma watson, who plays Hermione Granger, is ready to return for another special in a few years.
During an interview for the Vogue, the star confessed that she doesn’t have as much time to keep in touch with colleagues Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) e Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and so I would like to see them more often.
“They both hate WhatsApp and are not one to keep their phones. In fact, as a trio, we really try to stay away from the internet, so it doesn’t help when it comes to dating. I don’t fear a group of our own, but we are exchanging messages from time to time individually. Rupert send me pictures of your daughter, Wednesday, and I die of love.”
She continued, stating that she would love to repeat the reunion more times, including in a 40th anniversary special:
“Dan and I usually try to calm each other’s nerves. When we were invited to the special, we both tried to stay out of the spotlight, so it’s nice to have each other’s support, knowing there would be another wave of attention coming. But there would be no harm in repeating the dose in about 20 years. If it happens, I’ll be there in a heartbeat.”
On social media, netizens and fans of the Magic Universe commented on the exciting content of the production, saying that they could not contain their tears and that they were very happy with the reunion of the cast.
Check out some of the reactions below:
The Harry Potter reunion for me was like a hug you get from someone who has done you a lot of good in the past, but walked away for life. It’s that hug that warms you, renews you, reminds you of amazing moments, friendships made and how much you loved having that.

Harry Potter: Back to Hogwarts proves the strength and chemistry that this trio has and continues to have after 20 years. Even with the distance and the occupation with new projects, the love and connection they have for each other is noticeable…. pic.twitter.com/CvDcjyl9CO

“Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favorite fictional character of all time. I think a journalist once said it was irritating how many times during an interview I mentioned how lucky I was and started counting… BUT I KNEW IT WELL!!! And I still know Thank you to the fans who continued to show their support after the last movie. The magic of the world would not exist without you. Thank you for striving to make it such an inclusive and loving place.
I still miss the crew that made these movies all the time. Thank you for all your hard work too – I know your contributions are sometimes overlooked.
Happy 20th Anniversary Potterheads! We hope you enjoy the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts, which airs New Year’s Day, January 1 on HBO Max. ⚡️ Much to look forward to. 😊”, she wrote.
