The cast of Harry Potter is set to reunite for the franchise's 20th Anniversary961.com

It's been twenty years since the first Harry Potter film came out in theaters and went on to become one of the most successful movie franchises of all time. To celebrate the iconic series' 20th anniversary, the Harry Potter cast will be reuniting for a new special, which is set to premiere on HBO Max on January 1st of 2022. The special will be titled "Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts."

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and much more are expected to come together in a special that will "celebrate the unparalleled legacy of the Harry Potter film franchise and its indelible impact on the hearts, minds, and imaginations of families and fans around the world."

Other names from the franchise set to appear in the special will be Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Issacs, Gary Oldman, Tom Felton, and director Chris Columbus, just to name a few.

As it stands now, the Harry Potter franchise is the 3rd highest-grossing film franchise of all time with 9.2 billion dollars accumulated. That's including the "Fantastic Beasts" spin-offs as well. There's no doubt that the series has had a massive impact on pop culture as a whole, spanning movies, books, video games, and theme parks.

The author of the book series J.K. Rowling is notably missing from the lineup, whether that's due to her being unavailable or because of her comments on the transgender community in recent years is unclear. Maybe she'll make a surprise appearance.
