Default HP 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since the first film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was released in theaters! To celebrate this momentous occasion, the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts was released on HBO Max on January 1, 2022. The special reunited a number of cast and crew members from the films and reflected on the impact the Harry Potter series, both books and films, have had over the years.

Have you watched the special yet? What are your thoughts on it? And what impact has the series had on your life?

I watched it a few nights ago and SOBBED (within the first 3 minutes of it starting) - I forgot how much the series meant to me, until I heard the cast and crew speak to how much the series meant to them and the fans that they've spoken to and met over the years.

I remember turning to my sister and telling her that it felt like watching a 9th Harry Potter movie. I thought it was so beautifully edited & I really, truly loved all the 'behind the scenes' clips they included in as well. ugh.

Watched it a few days ago, and I got a bit teary eyed. I loved the in memoriam, and seeing the older cast members reuniting with the younger cast. There was a brief spot of the actor that plays professor Quirrell. I think they had a lot of material they cut. I love the platonic love between Emma and Rupert and Tom Felton. It was a heartwarming special, that I was able to fully appreciate since I just rewatched the movies and read the books for the first time. Makes me want a new movie with the original cast.

I watched it shortly after it was released. It was quite emotional; I started crying the moment Emma appeared {I believe she was the first cast member we saw}. I enjoyed looking at how far they all had come, how they looked back at their time while filming the movies. A lot of the facts they revealed were known to me, however I had not known that Emma contemplated leaving the films.

I also adored the scenes at the sets. Those were simply magical. Scenes where the golden trio chatted had me weak, and I especially loved the moments between Emma and Rupert where they talked about them being family.

I feel the same as you all - it was such an emotional special. It was so charming and magical from the beginning, and I couldn't help having a huge smile on my face through so much of it. Seeing so many of the cast and crew reuniting on set was just so cool, and I loved all the interviews that were done, especially the ones where they're talking with each other. Dan, Emma, and Rupert together again was great, but I also loved seeing Dan talk with Gary Oldman and Helena Bonham Carter and others too. It was just so fun seeing the friendship everyone has even after all this time.

And once the in memoriam section began, I was pretty much in tears the rest of the time. And the way they ended the special, with that one scene...the weeping was real

That is such a perfect way to describe it! It felt so much like that to me too.

OMG. Yes! This is the thread that I've been itching to find!

Did anyone else sob like a baby when Robbie Coltrane was like "People will be watching in 50 years or so, I will not be here...but Hagrid will"? Because I honestly lost it!

Yes I still feel a twang in my heart whenever I come across these particular screengrabs with the words on social media.
