This year marks the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (alternatively known as the Sorcerer’s Stone), which is based on the 1997 novel of the same name. In the years that followed, audiences were enraptured by the series of novels and subsequent films set in the magical Wizarding World.
Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts was announced last month, which will reunite Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, and other esteemed cast members and filmmakers across all eight Harry Potter films for the first time to celebrate the anniversary of the franchise’s first film. The retrospective special will tell an enchanting making-of story through all-new in-depth interviews and cast conversations, inviting fans on a magical first-person journey through one of the most beloved film franchises of all time.
A first look teaser for the special was revealed during Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses, a new four-part bracket-style quiz competition celebrating the Wizarding World fandom. Check it out below.
Other Harry Potter alumni that will be participating in the memorable tribute include Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, and Evanna Lynch, among others.
The special is produced by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon at the iconic Warner Bros. Studio Tour London — The Making of Harry Potter.
