It’s been 20 years now since the Harry Potter movie franchise started. That feels like an awfully long time, but that just about adds up.

The first Harry Potter movie was released in 2001 and it was directed by Chris Columbus. He then went on to direct the second Harry Potter film, Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets.

However, Columbus never directed another Harry Potter film after that. One of the things that the first movie did was establish its core cast very well. People just fell in love with Daniel Radcliffe as Harry, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley.

All three of them proved to be pretty well cast in those roles and all three actors have gone on to have rather successful careers in their own right. They’re not in that respect your usual child movie stars.

They won’t’ be the only cast members returning for this special event. They’ll be plenty of other Harry Potter movie stars popping up during the special, which I think might be a bit like the Friends reunion special which was also aired on HBO Max.
