It's official! Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint to reunite for Harry Potter special


[Version fran├žaise]












From Variety:


Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson will join filmmaker Chris Columbus and other cast members from all eight “Harry Potter” films for the first time in an HBO Max retrospective special to celebrate the anniversary of the franchise’s first film, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” which premiered 20 years ago today.

“Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” will premiere on HBO Max on New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, 2022. The feature will “tell an enchanting making-of story through all-new in-depth interviews and cast conversations,” according to HBO Max. All eight of Warner Bros.’s original “Harry Potter” films are streaming on HBO Max.

The special also will air on WarnerMedia’s TBS and Cartoon Network in spring 2022 ahead of the Warner Bros. Pictures theatrical debut of “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.”

Other alumni of the film franchise joining the tribute are set to include Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, Evanna Lynch, and Ian Hart.

An exclusive first look at the special will debut during the premiere of “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses” on Nov. 28 (8 p.m. ET/PT) on TBS and Cartoon Network. The bracket-style quiz competition, hosted by Helen Mirren, will feature fans competing to take home the Tournament of Houses championship trophy and will feature cameos by Harry Potter film alumni Tom Felton, Simon Fisher-Becker, Shirley Henderson and Luke Youngblood, as well as superfans Pete Davidson and Jay Leno. The four-part competition event will also begin streaming on HBO Max on Jan. 1.

it will be broadcast in uk im sure as it would be very silly if a uk based series like harry potter was only shown in USA lol

How many times do people have to say it will be on Sky in the UK…

Anonymous said...

I thought Sky was a set-top thing, do they have a streaming platform now? If they don't it's not really equivalent to HBO Max.

Anonymous said...

will "premiere" on HBO Max

so it doesn't say the word "exclusive" will be broadcast on other channels later

Anonymous said...

VPN user so it's all good

Anonymous said...

No one said Sky was a streaming service equivalent to HBO max, they said that they usually air the programmes shown on HBO max, which they do. They usually show them 12 to 24 hours later. Exactly like with Friends. Sky Atlantic shows HBO max stuff.

Will show on Sky Atlantic in UK on 2 Jan 2022

Eden how will you watch it?

Eden said...

"Eden how will you watch it?"

We got the Friends reunion on TV months later so I'm hoping we'll also get the HP reunion. I hope someone will take the bullet and post it online though because I don't want to wait.

After the reunion announced, she insta followers are growing rapidly. Good for her.
Also **** are getting mad and abusing the cast over not mentioning her name. LOl

Eden said...

They're getting mad in the comment section too. That's why I haven't published any comment mentioning her yet, I don't want to open the hate flood towards Emma or her or anyone.

"you need some kind of ultimate comment moderator award by now"

XD I know, I'm discussing it with Blogger. It's not going very well for some reason.

they saw that you got a big head after getting famous that one time and called us peasants so they are debating how fair it is to award you no doubt :P

Eden said...

It's true what they say. What you put on the internet stays forever. Sad.

Eden said...

Someone posted this: "Also I think they started shooting . Because a man posted a pic with Dan in London with caption at work."

Please no insults towards anyone. Emma, JKR, or their fans.

Reports of a lot of cameras at Harry Potter London tour today maybe they film stuff in there?

I don't think so, then there will be a lot of paparazzi pics.

Youtubers and others are always filming stuff at the harry potter studio place for all kinds of reasons with really professional looking cameras sometimes

i think that's what people see

careful posting on twitter eden **** fans are attacking any accounts that have emma's name in it or that post Emma content also posting lots of lies

Eden said...

Thank you :) I'm lucky for now.

if you want to avoid trouble you could turn off replies of people who dont follow your account or put the account on private so they cant find you either :)

I hope you are safe and dont get troubled by them

Hey eden remember to add hp reunion to emma's calendar and replace the earthshot event listed atm xD

Eden said...

On it. I keep forgetting this thing exists.

Anonymous said...

Narnia posted a lot today so i think some filming might have happened

Anonymous said...

Tom Felton said in Cameo that he was sitting with two Gryffindors, I saw someone confirmed that he was with Emma and Dan, I don't know if it's fake info made up by fans, maybe they did get together to shoot.

Eden update the calendar to Adele concert thing on Sunday.
Adele is back with new album , Hp reunion is happening , Christmas is coming . Life is good.

What lies?

they put all these fake quotes that emma never said harassing her and trying to make her look cruel

Anonymous said...

Tom felton all but 100% confirmed that some of the filming happened yesterday. Which matches info on other accounts and all the extra filming and security presence apparently at Leavesden yesterday according to different people. Lots of people that don’t follow each other etc all talking about yesterday definitely points to something happening. Explains Narnia as well.

Anonymous said...

They are all in London since 3 days ago. It’s happening now, some happened yesterday according to TF (who can’t keep his mouth shut)

Lol ***** have way too much free time.
That person claimed that he /she saw Dan Emma and tom in a restaurant.

Probably creepy, but Leo’s mum no longer follows Emma. If some people were still wondering they are definitely done.

Anonymous said...

I was disappointed to see that Emma Thompson was not on the list, she's the funniest and liveliest one haha. Then I remembered that Helena Bonham Carter would be at the reunion and to avoid embarrassment the two women couldn't see each other XD

I know its itching him that he can't post pics for more clout. I don't like his personality but people on bird app bully him way too much.

Maybe she is a joanne stan, probably like any other fragile joanne stan she got angry for not mentioning her name and unfollowed her.. Lol. . IT'S A JOKE.
also if she unfollowed her main account not the narnia one then it is very childish.

Anonymous said...

People say emma and leo fell out about where to live but emma being so into politics i think thats what actually happened maybe some of leos family really disagree with her stances and it became harsh environment

Anonymous said...

Leo’s family are very left wing, so certainly no politics and Leo’s mum never followed Narnia.
Emma Thompson probably isn’t going due to a schedule clash, Julie Walters isn’t there either but I think she’s retired now, and likewise Maggie Smith won’t be there, she’s also limited with events. A lot of the the older cast aren’t there, probably being careful with Covid, a lot of them have had health complications.

Anonymous said...

Maggie Smith literally doesn't go anywhere . The creator of Downton Abbey Julian Fellows begged her to be in the new DA movie (Super excited ). I am going to miss Emma Thompson , she is so funny.

Anonymous said...

I also noticed that Leo's mom recently unfollowed her, maybe his mom was freaked out by Emma's recent frequent updates of nude photos XD It's normal for them to have no contact since they broke up, and there's no need for his mom to keep following her.

Anonymous said...

People have speculated that nude butterfly model actually is Emma but i dont know lol

Eden said...

Of course it's not her. People are just wishing.

Anonymous said...

No i think its random art work i doubt Emma would just post herself like that lmao

I do slightly see why some would say its her based on like that topless Vogue photoshoot maybe a tiny bit of similarity

Anonymous said...

Eden confirms its not Emma so we should listen...Eden would know from all the time emma spent in her basement after all xd

Must be reddit users daydreaming with logic like "its emma account so of course she only posts her own pictures!!!"

so silly smh

Yeah c'mon guys Emma will post nudes the same day she marries Seth, that is to say, NEVER! haha

Anonymous said...

Emma Thompson said she and Helena got over the troubles they had many years ago and its 'blood under the bridge' Its probably Kenneth Branagh who is the one they both dislike now lol

The Butterfly shot is from 2012 and definitely not Emma.

yeah helena bonham carter has been 'the other woman' a lot back in the day. She was really chased by many men... kinda like Emma is always on those 100 most beautiful women lists these days is how Heleena was seen back then.

Anonymous said...

This is so gossipy but I heard Tim Burton cheated on her and maybe she was also seeing someone else again too. She seems to have open relationships maybe

Side note to bring it Back Emma and stay on topic Helena kinda looked like Hermione when she was young lol

Anonymous said...

Her relationship with Burton was odd tbh I think they lived in two different houses right next to each other rather than in the same house like wtf??? xD

Anonymous said...

well tbh i wouldn't want some man living in my house either even if he was my husband so I agree with that living situation haha

Same.

Anonymous said...

Helena and burton seemed too crazy to be married to each other haha I'm not shocked they lived in different houses. I think maybe Helena has something not quite right to her and why she acts so strange and has a messy personal life but she is perfect casting for Bellatrix in any case

No celeb relationship will ever be as weird as Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton. Ok, maybe Jerry Lee Lewis and his 13 year old cousin.

Someone asked Whoopi Goldberg that why doesn't she get married? She told that, she doesn't want another stranger in her house.. XD.

Traditional marriages are growing more and more outdated. Many like cohabitation now instead. Also today i even read of two people who have only ever talked on skype getting legally married even though they only talk online and never been in the same room lol

people can do marraige whatever way they want now having your own house for yourself is a great idea honestly lol

JK Rowling's address has been posted online by a group of trans activists.

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-59372838
One of the protesters wrote;
"Yesterday we posted a picture we took at JK Rowling's house."

The post, which has now been deleted, added: "While we stand by the photo, since posting it we have received an overwhelming amount of serious and threatening transphobic messages so have decided to take the photo down."

No thought that posting it originally might have led to welfare concerns for JK Rowling.

I would hope that Emma will condemn this.
It's not about trans rights, but rather the ability of people on all sides of the debate to be feel safe and respect the views of others.

Eden said...

That's scary.

Anonymous said...

Rowling's address has been on her wiki page for years no one was doxxed here also it's listed as a landmark to visit on other sites. She really just wants to make trans people look like they are dangerous and like everyone in LGBTQ+ community will attack you if you don't like them.

I agree people should not show up at her house to protest though
