First trailer for HBO special with Harry Potter stars

It’s been 20 years since the first Harry Potter film was released. With a special program for the anniversary, the main actors look back on the global success of the films.

Los Angeles / London – Emotional “Harry Potter” memories: in the first trailer for the special program “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson look back on the fantasy series with emotion.

The US streaming service HBO Max put the almost two-minute trailer online, and it was quickly viewed over 1.3 million times. HBO Max wants to show the special with many actors from the eight-part film franchise on New Years.

In the video clip with film scenes and interviews, Radcliffe, Grint and Watson affirm their friendship. “It’s a close bond that we will have forever,” says Grint, hugging Watson. “We are a family and we will always be part of others’ lives,” agrees Radcliffe. In dark, difficult times, “Harry Potter” somehow enriches life, says Watson. Co-stars like Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes also have their say in the trailer.

The first Harry Potter film celebrated its world premiere in London in November 2001, and seven more films followed. In addition to Radcliffe in the role of the famous student sorcerer, Watson appeared as Hermione Granger and Grint as Ron Weasley. The series is created by the British writer JK Rowling. dpa
