With lots of new and exciting things happening in the Wizarding World, now is the perfect time to sign up to the Harry Potter Fan Club.

Fans around the world will be able to watch Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson head back to Hogwarts in this special, with fellow cast and crew members, to celebrate this momentous anniversary of the first Harry Potter film.

Not only will Daniel, Rupert and Emma be making an appearance, but fans can expect to see Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, Evanna Lynch and director Christopher Columbus join in the trip down memory lane. Together, they will reminisce and help to celebrate the lasting legacy of Harry Potter and the immeasurable impact it had on fans in every corner of the globe.

There is something for every fan here – from those who have been with Harry Potter from the very beginning to those who are just discovering the wonders of the Wizarding World. Not only will you get to go behind-the-scenes of these incredible movies, but there will be in-depth interviews, never-before-seen clips, special guests and a few extra exciting surprises along the way.

And what better place to set the scene for this reflective show than the iconic Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter? It is the perfect location to honour the magic behind the making of the films – and the family that was created at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden two decades ago.
 

 

Tom Ascheim, the President of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics is certainly excited about the retrospective: ‘It has been an incredible journey since the debut of the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone film, and witnessing how it has evolved into this remarkable interconnected universe has been magical to say the least. 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.’
 

Fans around the globe will be able to watch Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts which will begin streaming on 1st January on HBO Max and for those where HBO Max is not yet available, we will have more news to share on further broadcasters and how you can watch soon! It will also air on TBS and Cartoon Network in springtime before the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

  • Dumbledore changed the title to HARRY POTTER CAST REUNION OFFICIAL 20th ANNIVERSARY EVENT!!!!!

I am really exited to watch this!
Hopefully there will be a way to watch it online as well, because HBO is usually behind a pay barrier here in Germany.

 

I‘ll be missing Alan Rickman and JK Rowling in this “Return to Hogwarts”, though.

So I’ve done the quizzes. To be honest, they’re nothing special. These are my results:

Week 1: 10/10

Week 2: 13/15

Week 3: 24/30

Total: 47/55

 

There was a few questions on fantastic beasts and cursed child otherwise I would have got nearly full marks.

      Fans of the Harry Potter books will be familiar with the character Peeves; a poltergeist fond of mischief and chaos who wreaks havoc through the corridors of Hogwarts.
       

      Airing on the 1st Jan 2022 - Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts. Rik Mayall was acknowledged in the list (as seen below)
       

       
      Peeve's was developed quite heavily as a character in JK Rowling's novels, and readers first meet him in Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone, when he's tormenting prefect Percy Weasley as he leads the Gryffindor first years to their common room.
       

       
      Rik talks Harry Potter

      Rik goes on to say how he was cut out of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
       
      Peeves the poltergeist was actually in the first Harry Potter film. Yes, the biggest disappointment for any die-hard Potterhead was undoubtedly the fact that Hogwart’s notoriously naughty poltergeist, whose antics often caused great amusement in the novels, didn’t make it to the on-screen adaptation of the books.
       
      It has since emerged that actor Rik Mayall was actually due to play Peeves and had filmed three weeks worth of scenes as the poltergeist, but later found out his part was cut during the movie’s final edits.
       
      Quoting:
      So he did it. He filmed in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone but…
      Out of all the side stories left out of the Harry Potter films, Peeves was one I missed the most so it’s unfortunate to hear we were so close. Also unfortunate? Though there have been several Harry Potter DVD releases, including many “special editions,” Mayall’s scenes have never been included.
       
      So, we're sorry to report that there have been no scenes released of Rik as Peeves in the Harry Potter series.
       
      Disappointed? Don't worry, you're not alone!
