Harry Potter fans, it's time to get excited because a reunion is on the cards. On Monday, HBO Max released a new teaser for Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, which will air as the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Day. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson will reprise their roles as Harry, Ron, and Hermione to commemorate the event.

The 50-second trailer begins with a girl reading a special edition of the Daily Prophet, with the page 1 headline reading,“Special edition: Hogwarts welcomes back alumni.” One can notice familiar letters from Hogwarts arriving. While the familiar Harry Potter music plays in the background. The trailer certainly takes us back to the iconic platform 9¾ where it all started. At London's Kings Cross station, where the Hogwarts Express departs.

However the special, which is set to air on January 1st, will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the release of the franchise's first film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, with feature interviews and cast conversations. Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is produced at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in collaboration with Warner Horizon. According to the Hollywood Reporter, series author JK Rowling will be missing from the reunion, save for some archival footage. She was previously chastised for arguing that transgender people should be defined by their biological sex.

Executive producer Casey Patterson says,“There's magic in the air here with this incredible cast, as they all return home to the original sets of Hogwarts, where they began 20 years ago. The excitement is palpable as they prepare to take their fans on a very special and personal journey, through the making of these incredible films.”

Emma Watson took to Instagram to express her excitement.“My home, my family, my world. And Hermione (still is) my favourite fictional character of all time,” she expresses via Instagram.“I am proud not just of what we as a group contributed as actors to the franchise. But also as the children that became young adults that walked that path,” Watson writes. “Look at my fellow cast members now and I am just so proud of who everyone has become as people. I am proud we were kind to each other that we supported one another and that we held up something meaningful.”
