Emma Watson coming back for a Friends-style Harry Potter special?

 


[Version fran├žaise]










Prayer circle, everyone. Potterheads have been summoned!

According to The Sun (yes, I know), "movie bigwigs" (I don't know what that means but I'm guessing people related to Warner Bros.) want a Friends-style reunion with the Harry Potter cast. They're offering a crap ton of money to the actors (they didn't say which ones but I'm guessing the trio and perhaps the older actors like Maggie Smith) and hope to have them film "a one-off special at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour London later this month" and that would include recreating famous scenes like "boarding the Hogwarts Express on Platform 9¾ and The Yule Ball".

An "insider" says "The proposed show is being shrouded in secrecy as franchise bosses want to get talent locked in first. It would be amazing if they pull it off and they have offered big money to the cast to reunite. Many of the actors have moved on, but the movies launched them to superstardom. They all have lots of fond memories from their time filming together. Everyone is hopeful it will happen."

The anniversary of the release is in 8 days.

Taking bets on the "insider" being Tom Felton. He's probably trying to orchestrate the whole thing on his own.

Always a good idea.
I'm not sure a TV show based on a bunch of empty chairs and Tom would work terribly well.

I think the jokes for now are fine, but I just want to give a little warning for the next ones. I feel like too many jokes about Tom not moving on from HP might end up sound less funny and more like bullying ;)

Didn't Daniel say past summer that the chances of him being involved in a 20 yr celebration would be very slim to none? I think he said he would be busy working around that time and Rupert is also currently in Canada, filming for Guillermo Del Toro's Netflix series.

Yeah, I struggle to imagine them accepting because I think they all moved on, but I don't think schedule would be too much of a problem as I think the reunion would probably only take a day or two.

Evanna Bonnie Tom and Weasley twins might show up and some extras like Patil twins but i dont see main cast showing up.

These sorts of things take months to plan (the Friends one was in the works for over a year even before the pandemic). I don't see them agreeing to something hastily thrown together at the last minute as a cashgrab.

I literally figured it would take a couple of days for cameras and everything technical to be arranged, the cast shows up, reads lines, answers some questions and there. Done. XD I know a lot about filming, okay?

Clearly last one week gave you a lot of hope, and hope is a dangerous thing. Bold of you to assume that Dan and Emma would be a part of it.

Do ya think that's maybe why your wedding planner business didn't go quite as well as hoped?

My wedding planner business didn't go well because I kept convincing people to break off the engagement. Totally different.

I have to wonder if this is even officially sanctioned or just some executive at WB. I would have thought they'd want an anniversary thing to be a big event, maybe re-release the movie in theatres and promote the theme parks. The Friends reunion being just a TV show made sense because Friends was a TV show, it would've been a bit weird to have a big extravaganza for a show people watch when they can't be bothered to find the remote.

Friends reunion took months to plan, I think they’ve missed the boat on this, maybe next year for 21st or the 25th. I’m sure they could get them to do something but between schedules and Covid theyve missed it this year for trio. Dan already ruled it out.
