This was the beginning of a wider franchise, inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original books, that would go on to span two film series, a stage play, theme parks, merchandise, and more around the world.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the films, HBO Max has announced an exciting new update to the franchise, coming early next year.

Here’s all you need to know about Harry Potter’s return to Hogwarts and the talk of a Harry Potter cast reunion.

The first Harry Potter book was published in 1997, after several years of Ms Rowling pitching the book to different publishers.

Much of the writing was done in Edinburgh, with the final book reportedly being written from a suite in the Balmoral Hotel.

When did Harry Potter come out?

The movies came to their conclusion in 2011, once again four years after the book series ended and ten years from when the first film came out.

HBO Max took the opportunity of the 20-year anniversary of the first Harry Potter film to announce an exciting Harry Potter cast reunion.

They released a trailer made up mostly of old clips from the films, but promising that the original stars, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint would return for a Harry Potter special in the new year.

J.K. Rowling will not be part of the TV special, coming after the author received widespread criticism for controversial comments about the trans community.

The TV special, named Return to Hogwarts, will premiere on January 1st 2022, where the Golden Trio will be joined by American filmmaker Chris Columbus, who also worked on the series, to discuss the films and explore their creation in depth.

Is there a new Harry Potter movie coming out?

The three actors will not be reprising their roles in the TV special, but will rather be there as themselves to discuss the making of the films, much like the recent Friends reunion to commemorate the hit sit-com.

Nonetheless, for those who need an extra kick of the Wizarding World on the big screen, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is due for a 2022 release, on April 8th.
