The countdown to the most enchanting event of the season continues.

To further entice fans, Warner Bros. has released the official Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts trailer today. The highly anticipated retrospective special is set to premiere exclusively on HBO GO on January 1, 2022.

Warner Bros. has had great success with these reunion specials. The Friends Reunion which aired earlier this year rode a wave of nostalgia as it drew in viewers. We can imagine that the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary special will do the same.

The newest Return to Hogwarts trailer reunites the original stars of the magical film franchise. In the trailer we see Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reunite on set along with other cast members.

Seen in the short clip are Harry Potter film alumni Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, and Tom Felton. Filmmakers Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuarón, Mike Newell and David Yates will also appear lending their thoughts on helming the films in the series.

Announced last month, the retrospective special invites fans on a magical first-person journey through one of the most beloved film franchises of all time. Reuniting the stars and other esteemed cast members and filmmakers across all eight Harry Potter films for the first time, the special will celebrate the anniversary of the franchise’s first film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is produced by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon at the iconic Warner Bros. Studio Tour London—The Making of Harry Potter. The special is executive produced by Casey Patterson of Casey Patterson Entertainment (A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote) and Pulse Films (Beastie Boys Story). Check out the Return to Hogwarts trailer below for a lovely tinge of nostalgia for the holiday season.
