The stars of Harry Potter are reuniting for its 20th anniversary.
"For the first time ever, the legendary cast returns to where the magic started. Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: #ReturnToHogwarts, streaming New Year’s Day, only on HBO Max. International release coming soon," streaming platform HBO Max announced on Wednesday, November 17.
One of the franchise's lead stars, Emma Watson, took to social media to express her elation about the project and to express her gratitude for being part of the Harry Potter world.
"Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favorite fictional character of all time. I think a journalist once said it was irritating how many times during an interview I mentioned how lucky I was and started counting… BUT I DAMN WELL KNEW!!! And still know," Emma said in her Instagram post.
In her post, she also expressed how proud she is of her co-stars for the people that they have become.
"I am proud not just of what we as 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. I am proud we were kind to each other that we supported one another and that we held up something meaningful," she remarked.
"I still miss the crew who made these films all the time. Thank you for all of your hard work too—I know your contributions sometimes get overlooked," she added.
Emma said that she hopes fans will enjoy the upcoming Harry Potter 20th anniversary special.
"Happy 20th Anniversary Potterheads! We hope you enjoy the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts which will stream New Year’s day, January 1 on HBO Max. ⚡️ Lots to look forward to," she said.
