“Harry Potter” star Emma Watson breaks her silence on HBO’s reunion special of the iconic film series that is said to star all of the franchises’ main cast.
Watson discussed the special in a recent social media post on her official Instagram. In the post, Watson writes:
“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.”
“Thank you to the fans that have continued to show their support well after the last chapter closed. The magic of the world wouldn’t exist without you. Thank you for fighting to make it such an inclusive and loving place.”
The actress hopes fans enjoy the event, writing, “Lots to look forward to.” Watson then went on to discuss the official release date of the special, being New Year’s Day.
Per a recent statement from Warner Bros., “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” will bring Watson together with co-leads Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). The trio will be joined by director Chris Columbus and other surprise cast members for a retrospective special dedicated to all things witchcraft and wizardry.
“It has been an incredible journey since the debut of the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone film, and witnessing how it has evolved into this remarkable interconnected universe has been magical to say the least,” Tom Ascheim, president of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics, said in a new statement.
“This retrospective is a tribute to everyone whose lives were touched by this cultural phenomenon – from the talented cast and crew who poured their heart and soul into this extraordinary film franchise to the passionate fans who continue to keep the Wizarding World spirit alive 20 years later.”
