After 20 years, one of the most successful film sagas of the last decades continues to generate an ocean of feelings around the world. When people talk about Harry Potter, millions of fans turn up and show that, despite the fact that the years have passed, the love for magic remains alive in each one of them. Thanks to this, one of the most special and long-awaited meetings will be held: "Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts".
With the aim of making a special similar to that of "Friends", HBO Max officially announced that on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the premiere of "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" the entire cast (or at least the majority) will do a memorial meeting, something not seen for ten years. Who will be present? Where will it take place? When and where can we enjoy it? There are many questions that raise the expectations of millions of people who grew up watching the adventures of Harry, Hermione and Ron.
Harry Potter and the magic of its protagonists
In an event of such magnitude, it is more than obvious that its three protagonists will be present. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson are spearheading the project alongside the director of the first film, Chris Columbus. Likewise, a long list of figures related to the saga will not be left behind, and there they stand out: Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort), Bonnie Wright (Ginny), Matthew Lewis (Neville), Evanna Lynch (Luna), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge), Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange), and countless others.
It should be noted that during the meeting the actors and actresses will be remembering important moments during the filming, what the figure of Harry Potter meant in their careers, as well as the impact and legacy that all these films left. And since the special emphasizes the return to Hogwarts, one detail that will surely not be overlooked will be showing iconic objects and settings that made more than one dream as a child.
Who did not hide her emotion for living this reunion was Emma Watson, who did not take long to react to the news with a publication on her Instagram account. “Thank you to the fans who have continued to show their support long after the last chapter closed. The magic of the world would not exist without you. Thank you for fighting to make it such a caring and inclusive place," wrote the actress who also stated that Hermione is still her favorite fictional character.
And where will this special meeting take place? The answer is simple: in the same real settings where all the films were shot, that is, in Leavesden Studios in England. As relevant data, we can say that this property became a tourist area, which thousands of fans visit every day to learn about the original recording sets and all the magic that surrounds this great film saga.
An unmissable date
There will be no better New Year's gift than to see all those characters that marked our childhood together. "Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts" will premiere exclusively on the HBO Max platform on January 1, 2022, and will surely bring us many more surprises than what was seen in the trailer. Exclusive interviews, anecdotes, and details never revealed before from the very protagonists will be the ideal dressing for this unmissable date.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that the streaming platform will also enable "Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses" that same day, a knowledge competition that covers the entire fantasy world of Harry Potter and which will also be hosted by actress Helen Mirren. Without a doubt, happiness and nostalgia will invade our screen with a journey that promises to take us back to that place where the magic began.
