The trailer for the Harry Potter reunion special has dropped sending hard core fans into a frenzy.
Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is set to air on Binge on January 1, with the first-look teaser promising the return of stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
It opens on a shot of the front page of the fictional Daily Prophet which reads: “Special edition. Hogwarts welcomes back alumni,” as well as cast members – including Scottish actor Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid, receiving invitation letters back to the legendary school of magic.
The impending return of the much loved trio as well as the entire extended cast has triggered a wave of excitement among Potterheads who have taken to social media to share their excitement.
According to an official press release, the reunion will “tell an enchanting making-of story through all-new, in-depth interviews and cast conversations”.
Just last month, Emma Watson paid tribute to the Potter world with a social media post reading “Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favourite fictional character of all time,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I am proud not just of what we as a group contributed as actors to the franchise but also as the children that became young adults that walked that path. I look at my fellow cast members now and I am just so proud of who everyone has become as people,”
Other co-stars set to appear in the reunion special include Bonham Carter, Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, Tom Felton and surprisingly – JK Rowling will not.
Rowling has been in hot water recently, with immense online backlash for her comments made on the transgender community.Internet Explorer Channel Network
