ORIGINAL STORY (November 9, 2021): Calling all muggles — Warner Bros. is reportedly working on a Harry Potter reunion.
You heard that right, the movie’s leads — Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint — along with other cast members have been invited to film a special episode at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour in London. According to The Sun, “movie bigwigs” aim to follow the success of the Friends reunion by creating a Hogwarts version. This one-off special will also celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise’s first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
“The proposed show is being shrouded in secrecy as franchise bosses want to get talent locked in first. It would be amazing if they pull it off and they have offered big money to the cast to reunite,” a source shared with The Sun. “Many of the actors have moved on, but the movies launched them to superstardom. They all have lots of fond memories from their time filming together. Everyone is hopeful it will happen.”
If all goes according to plan, filming will commence later this month. Stay tuned while we wait for more details to be confirmed.
