HBO unveil new trailer for the Harry Potter reunion and confirm cast list

Listen up Potterheads! HBO Max have shared a brand new trailer for their highly anticipated Harry Potter reunion special which is due to premiere on New Year’s Day, and now we finally have a confirmed list of returning stars.

Taking to social media in the early hours of the morning, HBO Max unveiled the very exciting trailer, with a caption which read, “The invitation you’ve been waiting for has arrived. Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: #ReturnToHogwarts is coming to HBO Max on New Year’s Day.”

In the brief teaser clip we get to see a variety of our beloved Harry Potter actors receive their all important invitation, resembling the iconic Hogwarts letter which Harry received in the first film.

We see what looks like Helena Bonham Carter, who played Belatrix LeStrange, reading an issue of The Daily Prophet. We see Robbie Coltrane, a.k.a. Hagrid, opening up his Anniversary invitation and we get a glimpse of Mark Williams who played Arthur Weasley, waving from a train carriage on platform 9 ¾.
