Tomorrow we’re heading back to Hogwarts with the HBO Max special. Where to see Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts?
This is the event of the beginning of the year 2022, at least for fans of the saga Harry potter. To celebrate the 20 years of the first opus, Warner Bros. and HBO Max will bring together a good part of the actors of the saga around a special program which promises to be moving for them… as for us.
Baptized Return to Hogwarts, it will be the opportunity to discover more behind the scenes of the vast franchise. Among the actors present, we find unsurprisingly Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, famous for their incarnations of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley on the big screen. They should also find Gary Oldman (Sirius), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) or even Tom Felton (Drago), James (Fred) and Oliver Phelps (George).
Even some villains of the franchise will make a comeback, starting with Ralph Fiennes who camped the One-Of-One-Must-Not-Pronounce-The-Name. He will be reunited with several of his followers, like the frightening Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter) and even Dolores Umbridge (Imelda Staunton).
Chris Columbus also in the game
The actors will not be the only ones to come and share their secrets. Chris Columbus must also pass a head, it is to him that we owe the first opus. This will undoubtedly be the occasion for him to recall his attachment to the adventures of the little wizard, and why not reiterate his statements about a ninth opus. Last November, he told Variety want to return to the production of an opus of the saga, adapted from the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which takes place 19 years later The Deathly Hallows.
In contrast, no sign of JK Rowling. Its absence would be officially justified by the fact that the show will only address the process of creating the different films. We can also imagine that after his controversial tweets on transidentity, Warner Bros. preferred to do without her. Especially since several actors, like Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, had dissociated themselves from his remarks considered transphobic.
