Emma Watson in 'Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts' (Interviews, moments and fails)

 


[Gallery] [Fashion] [Version fran├žaise]










Doesn't seem like there was anything new like some BTS as I was hoping :( They did mess up and shared childhood photos of the actors, including... EMMA ROBERTS'!!! I can't believe they just googled the actors' name to get childhood photos. They could have asked Emma, they could have checked her official social media... but checked Google and got a photo of the wrong Emma XD
 



  • New poster though.



  • And some moments and parts of interviews.

Emma: "I honestly didn’t know how I was going to feel [returning]. And then something happened where it was just like the comfort of the people that I’ve known for such a long time and the history that we share and that sense of safety. And then, once I started feeling really safe, enjoying everything that we made and that we created and feeling like we could kind of celebrate and just enjoy being together. Some of us haven’t seen each other for years. So, it’s just been a joy. An unexpected joy. I really didn’t know how I would feel. I felt quite overwhelmed this morning. I’ve just been really pleasantly surprised by actually just getting to relive it all."

Daniel: "The amount of prep and coaching Emma and I would give each other on texting to the opposite sex,” he said. “Like if she was texting a boy or I was texting a girl, I’d be like, ‘She sent me this many kisses back, what do I do? This is a nightmare’."

Emma's description of her and Daniel's relationship: "older brother, younger sister thing."




"Emma admitted she was obsessed with playing Hermione after it became her 'family's thing' to read the books

On working with the child stars, Christopher [Columbus, director of the first Harry Potter movies] insisted Emma was 'the cleverest person on the whole set', while she herself insisted she 'is Hermione' having connected deeply with the character: 'Hermione made complete sense to me, I felt like I was this girl', and admitted her family feared for her if she didn't get the role.

Daniel then spoke to Emma and Rupert about his starstruck moment of meeting Gary and how he demanded his co-stars 'don't mess up' in front of him - although confessed this was more an order of his own.

Discussing filming the Yule Ball, all the stars admitted they struggled, with Emma saying she battled with having  her 'Ugly Duckling moment', meaning she had to be trained by Mike in walking down the stairs.

Emma was even seen recalling the exact moment that she 'fell in love' with her former co-star Tom during a tutoring session between filming. The actress - reminisced about her crush on Tom and vividly recalled him making her heart skip a beat for the first time. She recalled: 'I walked into the room where we were having tutoring. The assignment that had been given was to draw what you thought God looked like, and Tom had drawn a girl with a backward cap on a skateboard. 'And I just don't know how to say it – I just fell in love with him. I used to come in every day and look for his number on the call sheet, it was number seven, and if his name was on the call sheet, it was an extra exciting day.'

Admitting to writing about being lonely in a diary entry at the time, [Emma] explained how 'the fame thing had finally hit home in a big way'. She confessed: 'I think I was scared. I don't know if you ever felt like it got to a tipping point where you were like, "This is kind of forever now."' It was around the time of Order of the Phoenix when things started getting spicy for all of us.' 

Emma gushed about being 'proud' of Evanna, as well as Bonnie, who played Ginny in the franchise.

In anticipation of Hermione and Ron becoming romantically involved, Emma and Rupert discussed how they struggled to film their first kiss amid the Battle Of Hogwarts in the final movie.Emma recalled: 'Kissing Rupert is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do because Dan, Rupert and I are so siblings'. She then confessed they kept 'corpsing' - a term for actors ruining scenes by laughing'.

Following their discussions of each film, the group all grew emotional as they rounded out the show. Emma went on: 'It's like we did the most extreme form of method acting. The way it feels for me now - I'm trying not to get emotional - it feels you you're a pillar of my life', while Rupert added that 'they are family'. Rupert then said: 'I love you, as a friend - just to be clear'.

Emma said: 'There's something about Harry Potter that makes life richer. When things get really dark and times are really hard, stories give us places we can go where we can rest and we can be held'. Breaking down in tears, Emma said: 'It was the best most amazing experience and I cant explain they're such good people and they're so kind and they took the responsibility so seriously and I appreciate that so much'.

Speaking about appearing on the reunion without their late stars, Emma said: 'It's obviously amazing to be back, but so many people we thought would be here for much longer like Helen and Alan and Richard', while Rupert sadly echoed: 'They're like family, just gone too soon'.

Emma said: 'It's obviously amazing to be back, but so many people we thought would be here for much longer like Helen and Alan and Richard. Alan Rickman never spoke to me like I was a child. He always took my thoughts and opinions very seriously which I was always very touched by. Richard Harris was such a special, warm person. He was so twinkly'.

  • And at last (I think), a new BTS video of the reunion:

I wish here were Harry/Hermione kiss outtakes…guess will never see them. I also wish they had the whole cast in one room at some point.

I thought the kiss picture was a bigger faux pas.

The tribute section also when Dan and Emma started crying that really hit me. That was really my entire childhood.
Based on Emma's hair I think She filmed some part at November and some part later.

I watched it, HBO got a lot of details wrong, got the wrong photos of Emma and Evanna, the twins' names reversed... really a failed reunion just to get money lmao

Anonymous said...

This could have just been a youtube video didn't feel like it warranted a huge HBO Max release so much money thrown at the cast for a lot of the show to be about the directors talking and using old clips of the movies to pad out run time...not a great show sadly trio have about 10mins screen time over all should have been an 1hr or more of those three going to different sets and meeting the rest of the cast in different places and speaking about the memories of that set and the actors there... so badly planned it feels like

Anon said...

the problem is everyone could not be there at the same time Rupert had to work and was edited in later for some of it and only got to do some stuff with Emma in the same room a different day

In an ideal world yes all three would be at the studio on the same days with everyone else and do a huge studio tour

meeting every one of the cast and at the end, there would be a long trio only interview where Rupert isn't just CGI in

However its tough times with travel restrictions and people being busy at the end of the year so it was not the best time and we are lucky to get anything at all really

Eden said...

Reading what people are saying, I feel like they should have waited for the 25th anniversary if this mess is the best they could do for the 20th.

These two ladies on this podcast have the best review I have heard they are so correct about the directors having too much screen time and weird editing where dan and Emma talk over each other it was so strange editing at times lol

Watched it and really really enjoyed it.

Lucy said...

People are allowed to say they don't enjoy something and shouldn't be ignored because they don't agree with you
Also its just a fact that HBO got a lot of the show wrong and even Eden has pointed out using wrong photos and very basic mistakes that's how little care was put into this thing really

Anonymous said...

meh it was okay...i wouldn't watch it again

Gary Oldman was wasted too imo (not drunk wasted lol just didn't have enough screen time) also i think this should have been 2hrs or over and use less movie clips it really ate into the 1hr 45min run time

Anonymous said...

From a lot of the comments on this the blog usually - people also have the right to (correctly) observe that it is nearly always on the negative side and ignore the comments.. I usually ignore everyone in the comments as well due to the mass doom and gloom and overblowing of everything. Pleased others do! People complain about the most basic stuff.

Anonymous said...

Fresh Prince is still the best one of these things they did it right all the main cast in one room
HP of course has a bigger cast but I think you should concentrate on the trio, luna and the Weasleys then Malfoy Bellatrix and Sirius and just limit it to that core cast of Villians and good guys and you would have a decent show

Not going by RT but going by the 20 or so so I’ve seen the reviews really liked it. Also seeing great online reviews. Most complaints I’ve seen are here which is nothing new. It’s the exact same for movies. Regular people and reviews think good, people hear think bad. As per norm.

Please don't turn this comment section into a fight between those liked the show vs those who disliked it, thank you. You're neither right or wrong for liking or disliking something.

Anonymous said...

Nobody is saying everyone liked it. The person is saying that most people liked it from the reviews and what they’ve seem. but that here tends to be more negative than other spaces. Which I don’t think people can deny, Eden’s comment section skews negative through no fault of Eden’s. Commentators here not pick more. That’s a pretty fair observation­čĄö

Ick James Cordon in the Friends Reunion
Thank god this didn’t have that

Eden said...

I think it all depends on expectations. The Friends' reunion delivered what I was hoping. The main cast together and at least a glimpse at the secondary cast with them, BTS I had not seen before and new anecdotes. I was hoping for the same thing for HP, but it doesn't seem like there was any of it. That's why for now I feel like I might have enjoyed a 25th anniversary, with hopefully a much lesser health crisis, better.

Probably the only one here but I feel that there's a good amount of unsaid stuff between Emma and Rupert. And I don't mean that in a romantic way or even bad way. These two need a long good talk off camera.

That's my review thanks bye now.

25Th anniversary in less troubled times with more planning could have been better I agree but also maybe older cast members may have passed on by then? some already have (RIP Alan and others missings cast)
I think there will not be another moment like this where many of the cast reunites but I would hope one day Emma Dan and Rupert by themselves could happen with no greenscreen tricks haha.

there really is way too much movie footage a good 30mins of this is movie scenes like guys we have all seen the movies keep the camera on emma dan and rupert for a few minutes without cutting away every 20secs please lol

I think its really done to hide how Rupert is not really there as others mentioned

Emma said that "we love each other, that's I can say about that"

I just can't figure out if she's leaving the friendship doubt or if there's actually something romantic/lovey going on between her and Tom, someone can help me?

Anonymous said...

For me its too many talking head interviews and not enough cast just talking to each other I agree an uncut conversation between the trio for even just 30mins would have been more entertaining to me. It just cuts to Emma dan and Rupert sitting down without hugging or saying hello to each other and was a bit abruptly done. Oh well I hope others enjoyed it though happy new year x

Unless the German bot already got a few times approval for things it wrote that did not fit to what was expected of the bot to be like in general.

Something like that "Unscripted" interview they did in 2007 would have been nice.

It's more for the media's attention than anything I think, same with Rupert joking about "I love you... as a friend, to be clear". They know the media constantly invents things about her love life even when she's stated the exact opposite (just search news feeds for her name in the last week).

Anyone remember the interview on prisoner of azkaban dvd with the guy and the shrunken head where the trio is interviewed together on on set? and then the malfoy gang are brought in and later?

I do remember that interview. I had Jimmy Carr's face in my head for the interviewer but I checked and they don't even look alike XD I wish they had gotten Lizo Mzimba to interview them. I think he was the very first person to interview them. Could have been cute.

Anonymous said...

Here is the the interview it was a great format also 45mins is perfect length if you add in 20mins of movie clips like HBO then it will be feature-length easily also instead of the one classroom set change location for each group of people and it would be perfect https://youtu.be/Bhgm9-Em21k

So I'm 45mins into reunion and Evanna lynch has spoken for about 10secs so far hopefully when it gets to order pf Phoneix stuff she will talk more?
also the shot of Emma and bonnie and Evanna on the train was also like 5sec scene for the intro.
i thought they would have a full convo on the train with the tree girls :( maybe it happens later?
if not im a bit disappointed as it feels like an uneven production where screen time was not shared that well

Interesting Matt Lewis said cast did date each other and broke up like a normal school

Also always remember dan emma randomly holding hands at that premier hehe XD

I'm a no one shipper in Harry Potter surprisingly enough. I somehow find ways to ship at least two characters in any movie, show or book, but I think Harry Potter is the only thing where I find no one's fit for anyone XD Harry and Ginny are cute I guess. Dumbledore and Grindelwald would probably be fascinating. But apart from that... nah.

An interesting survey, most searched 'Harry Potter' stars since reunion announcement in the last 30 days. Emma is no surprise at No. 1 with 4.98 million searches, Robert Pattinson surprised everyone over Daniel at No. 2. I did see quite a few people asking why he wasn't invited lol, I believe the search was more about Batman than the reunion.

Emma literally called Dan and Rupert her siblings and about Tom and Emma I think whole thing is very platonic. Not everything have to be sexual.
Emma was trending all day in my country and in other countries also, I know Twitter doesn't mean anything but yea.
Gary Oldman's wife posted picture of Emma.

Just so they could have adopted me.
Best ship in real life would be have been Miriam Margoyles (Prof Sprout) and Richard Griffiths (Mr Dursley).
Two fun larger than life (in every sense) terrific actors.

Sadly not going to happen with Richard having passed away (and he was happily married)
and Miriam is gay and in a long term relationship.

But gee there would never have been a dull moment in the Margriff ship.

Saw the program last night and after reading the stuff here was really surprised, I really enjoyed it. Yes it’s not perfect but I found it really enjoyable. Best bits were the intro and the trio at the end.

She was not even 13. She was 10 and it seems to have last until she was 11/12. Fortunately that love doesn't last or I'd still be waiting for Edward Scissorhands.

They brought up the crush again as it always gets more headlines than anything else and drives talk about the show its cheap tactic but works unfortunately

I actually find it odd how the media focuse so much on Emma's childhood crush on Tom when both Dan and Rupert also talked about having a crush on Emma probably around the same time, but we never hear about that. That not me complaining by the way. I'm happy we don't hear about it.

Anonymous said...

Emma will never fully clear it up if anything happened until she is 70 writing her auto-biography lets be real and yes they both know its good for media to keep playing up the crush story and why Emma has that little smile at the end of her 'that all i'll say about that' moment its to keep the talk going forever hahah

Anonymous said...

when both Dan and Rupert also talked about having a crush on Emma probably around the same time, but we never hear about that.

Truly because that is where something actually happened and Emma and the boys do not wish to discuss it and always use that 'like a sister' line.

You can tell all Dramione stuff is just playing up for fans as Emma never talks about her real relationships in any interview so she would not break this rule for Tom stuff and makes it clearly feel like just a fun game for media and fans to stir the pot imo

I haven't seen the reunion yet but this makes me think that Emma might be just as happy with the Feltson rumours as Tom seems to be. I was getting annoyed at Tom fueling the fire because I felt like Emma was not here for it, but I might have to start swallowing my words (didn't check if it's the right expression. I taking a bet).

just search Emma tom on twitter eden you will find screen caps of the moment Emma says they love each other but nothing romantic ever happened and thats all she will say about that but then she has a cheeky little smile like she is lying lol

Anonymous said...

Emma started the shipping with her crush talk at the last few movies then stopped but Felton kept it going for years and then they both started it again with the skateboard thing and have both pushed it from then on for marketing and promoting each other.

You can not blame one over the other for keeping this thing going.

Eden said...

"do you have a link to dan or rupert saying that stuff eden? for some reason i can only ever remember them saying "ewwww she is like family stop asking us that!!!" kind of answers lmao"

I remember the both of them mentioning it but all I can find for now is Rupert saying "Emma’s a pretty girl. Have Daniel or I ever hit on Emma? Well, she’s quite popular with the cast. As for who has the worst crush on her – me or Radcliffe – I’d rather not say."

Anonymous said...

I think Dan once said all the boys had crush on Emma at some point as for a long time she is the only girl any of them were around lol

Anonymous said...

I read the laugh/smile from Emma when talking about Tom totally differently. She was very emphatic in saying nothing romantic has ever happened, very emphatic. I took the laugh at the end as what she said, that there’s nothing else she can say other than that (to make people believe her) and that’s why she laughed and put her hands up, like I can’t make you believe me there nothing else I can do!
I believe that nothing happened between emma and the main boys. When Matt was talking about people dating each other I think he meant generally, as there was an enormous amount of kids on set, literally hundreds, so stuff of course happened (later examples we know of that lasted were Tom and Jade, and Dan and Rosie) but they’ve always denied anything between the 7 main cast and they have no reason to anymore, it would have come out by now.
That doesn’t mean nothing could ever happen, but nothing has to date.
I honestly don’t know what else emma can do to stop the feltson stuff. they’ve intermittently tried different tactics, initially talking and then not talking about it (which they did for years), and then talking about stuff that already had coverage as they didn’t think the media would be interested again (I think Emma was genuinely surprised for DH that the media were so interested as she’d already talked about it several films before so I think she thought the press wouldn’t be as interested), and now the media pick it up again. I think she probably goes through periods of being exasperated or entertained, but nowadays seems mostly entertained by it (she’s single so it doesn’t bother her as much).

I also took her laugh as a “what else can I say here guys - we’re friends!”

"Emma will never fully clear it up if anything happened until she is 70 writing her auto-biography lets be real"

Yup, pretty much but I doubt she will even write memoirs even though she is said to have a million diaries...maybe she will allow them published long after she passes away or something when no one in there can be affected by anything that's written there

There was only one goal with the little laugh and smile and its to feed shippers hope doesn't mean anything actually happened tbf

everything shown here is carefully edited for the most headlines and speculation possible

She literally said “ever” at least twice when saying nothing romantic has ever happened with Tom, and she’s also said nothing happened previously several times. How more clear can she be? What else can she say? That’s why she laughed at the end. I think she’s genuinely like, there’s nothing else I can say here I love him as a friend and it’s never been more

Emma might as well have winked at the camera after saying
'that's all i'll say about that'
really no need for it
after saying nothing ever happened lol
HBO/WB no what they are doing editing it like this for sure

I don’t think the wry laugh was for shippers from her at all, I think it was a “what the heck else do you want from me? Nothing happened!”

Why do shippers need to be fed though? At this point it's just fuels the hate towards their life partners.

it's just a bit of playful fun in the end about kids crush nothing serious tongue firmly in cheek from both Felton and Emma

Shippers drive engagement online and are free promo for teh actors/hp/ and anything else they do and the show in eyes of warner bros/hbo needed these headlines but to me it's a poor way to market this thing and took away from the main thing of the trio meeting again which is the real selling point

I can't say for Emma but tom feeds people to keep his social media activity and get more memes and followers push Draco-Tok and all that stuff

its just good business although it does get tiring

Lol this very comment section is why everyone involved brings it up it gets maximum attention!
People should be talking the real story about Dans love note to Helena and put that under a microscope is the true amazing gossip haha xD

Anonymous said...

I love that Helena kept that note and took a photo just to make Dan cringe she is the best honestly heheh

It was clearly planned as marketing by the producers, that's why it was one of the main things released ahead of time. My guess is her reaction was just exasperation that they were even bringing it up.

One day Emma would seriously get married or have babies but shippers would still be like " Remember your first crush "

one reason rupe has wife and kids and rest dont is probably because people arent shipping him all the time which he is probably grateful for and lets his relationships work out better lmao
