I can’t think of a better way to start 2022 than watching the Harry Potter reunion special on HBOMax. Aptly titled, Return to Hogwarts, the special brings together the core three – Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) – as well as many other key actors and contributors, to share their on-set memories. You don’t have to be a super fan to enjoy the joy-filled special; you just need HBO Max, so what are you waiting for?
