Its big news for Harry Potter fans as the cast of the film franchise is rumoured to be planning a ‘Friends-style’ reunion show – twenty years after the first film was released.
The creators of the Harry Potter movie have hinted at a plausible reunion for the cast on the movie’s 20th anniversary. Per reports, the reunion will be filmed with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint at Warner Brothers Studio Tour in London.
When is the Harry Potter reunion happening?
“The proposed show is being shrouded in secrecy as franchise bosses want to get talent locked in first,” a source tells The Sun. “It would be amazing if they pull it off and they have offered big money to the cast to reunite. Many of the actors have moved on, but the movies launched them to superstardom. They all have lots of fond memories from their time filming together. Everyone is hopeful it will happen.”
The reunion aims to recreate iconic scenes from the movies, “including boarding the Hogwarts Express on Platform 9¾ and The Yule Ball.”
It’s been a decade since the Harry Potter film series ended, but fans are still deeply invested in the franchise. J.K. Rowling’s story.
While Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Evanna Lynch have all famously spoken up about their experiences on set before, their co-star, Emma Watson, also recently opened up on one scene she filmed that made her deeply “uncomfortable.”
In Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part One, the seventh installment in the film series, there is a famous tent scene involving Radcliffe’s Harry and Watson’s Hermione where the two characters are left alone after a falling out with Ron.
The pair is depicted at their lowest point until a radio starts playing music in the background. Harry then offers his hand to Hermione, asking her for a dance in an effort to cheer her up. The two friends share a sweet and tender moment before there is suddenly tension between them.
This scene never appears in the books and fans were divided as they felt it hinted that Harry and Hermione could be closer than friends.
Speaking to Hypable, Emma Watson said: “When I was doing the scene, I said to David: ‘This isn’t in the book, she didn’t write this, I’m not sure I’m comfortable insinuating something however subtle it is! It’s a really haunting scene. It’s funny because it really divided people. Some people loved that scene and some people really didn’t.”
However, author J.K Rowling actually liked the scene.
In the same interview, she said: “Actually I liked that scene in the film because it was articulating something I hadn’t said but I had felt. I really liked it and I thought that it was right. I think you do feel the ghost of what could have been in that scene.”
