There's going to be a 'Harry Potter' reunion
Attention Pottheads!!!! There Will Be a "Harry Potter" Reunion Special . . .
The big "Harry Potter" reunion special is indeed happening, and it's happening soon. It'll start streaming on HBO Max on January 1st, and there's already a teaser for it, although it doesn't show any new footage.
DANIEL RADCLIFFE, EMMA WATSON, and RUPERT GRINT will be joined by a TON of other stars from the movies, including . . .
Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) . . .
Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge) . . .
Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas), and Ian Hart (Professor Quirrell).
Director Chris Columbus will also be on hand. He directed the first two movies, and this month marks the 20th anniversary of the first one, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone".\
The teaser promises "many more" guests . . . but one name that's been GLARINGLY omitted is J.K. ROWLING.
So-called "sources" close to the project say she'll be featured in archival footage but will NOT make a new appearance in the special.
It's not clear if she's been asked, or if she's even WANTED.
