It was a double-take this week, as people around the globe realized there have been twenty years between the debut of the very first Harry Potter film.
Yes, two years have passed since we packed up our trunks and embarked on the Hogwarts Express with Harry, Ron and Hermione three characters that played an important part in the childhood of the majority of young millenials.
Although some of the controversial comments made by the author JK Rowling in recent years have put the show under a a scrutiny however it has not been able to alter the impact it has had on a lot of young people in the millennial generation and a message that, in the end kindness and love always triumph over the darkness.
The message is in place, movies we enjoy watching and books that we want to read again, it’s not a surprise that the show will have a celebration of its 20 year anniversary by hosting an episode of reunion, filmed by such a group as Friends earlier in the year.
What is included in this special?
It will also see the bulk of the cast come together, with Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe at the helm.
It will also feature some of the following: Helena Bonham Carter, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, Tom Felton, James and Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, and Matthew Lewis, to name two.
Chris Columbus, who directed the two first films and will be joining in discussing the franchise.
When are we likely to have it on the radar?
The date that is listed on the last page of this trailer is January 1, 2022.
Since we’re in Australia We will not be able to watch the show until it’s aired across both the U.K. and the U.S. So we’ll probably watch it on February 2 2nd.
How can we view it?
We haven’t received confirmation yet, the show will air in the US on HBO Max, which is where the Friends reunion was also shown.
We were able access our Friends reunion through Binge which means that the chances are that it’ll show on the internet in the beginning of January!
We will keep you informed in the event that the location of the show changes, so be sure to check back for more Potter information.
