It’s time for a Harry Potter reunion!

HBO Max announced on Tuesday that the original Harry Potter stars, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, will reunite for a special on the streaming service. The special will be titled Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts and will debut on Jan. 1, 2022. The special was announced on the 20 year anniversary of the premiere of the first installment of the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Aside from the three main cast members, many supporting cast will also return for the special. The extended cast that has been confirmed includes Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, Tom Felton, James and Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, Evanna Lynch, director Chris Columbus “and many more.”

Emma Watson took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of herself, Radcliffe and Grint when they were first cast in the series. She shared an emotional caption about her experience on the series. “Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favorite fictional character of all time. I think a journalist once said it was irritating how many times during an interview I mentioned how lucky I was and started counting… BUT I DAMN WELL KNEW!!! And still know,” she began in the Instagram caption.

She continued, “I am proud not just of what we as group contributed as actors to the franchise but also as the children that became young adults that walked that path. I 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.”

“Thank you to the fans that have continued to show their support well after the last chapter closed. The magic of the world wouldn’t exist without you. Thank you for fighting to make it such an inclusive and loving place,” she added. “I still miss the crew who made these films all the time. Thank you for all of your hard work too – I know your contributions sometimes get overlooked.”
