It’s time to get back to the wizarding world my fellow Potterheads.
Can you believe that our all-time favorite magical series came out 20 years ago? The first Harry Potter movie came out in 2001 and our lives were never the same again.
To mark the occasion, Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts Special will reunite our Harry, Hermione and Ron on January 1, 2022.
Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, and Rupert Grint will take a trip down memory lane from the making of the film that started it all, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone to the whole franchise experience. They will be joined by the filmmaker itself Chris Columbus and some other cast members.

Hogwarts Tournament of Houses
Yes. It was not a ruse. There really is a four-part competition event, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses that is a bracket-style quiz hosted by the one and only Helen Mirren just for us fans. The tournament will stream weekly every Monday starting November 29.
I think its time for our seasonal binge-watch of all eight Harry Potter movies in preparation for the special.
