“Something mysterious, time,” said Albus Dumbledore. It’s the perfect start to Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts. Which begins with accepting an invitation from the film’s stars to celebrate its 20th anniversary. They boarded the Hogwarts Express and greeted each other with hugs and smiles.
Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) also enters the famous Great Hall first and hugs Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) tightly as the dancers swirl around her.
Another cast soon joined, including the rest of the trio, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) as well as the Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), Matthew Louis (Neville Longbottom), Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort) and a host of others, in addition to producer David Hayman and director Christopher Culfon Columbus. Newell and David Yates. When the gang reunites, it’s a whole house – or a castle.
Radcliffe revisited Diagon Alley with a wink.
In Dumbledore’s office, he was soon reunited with Christopher Columbus, director of the first two chapters. This marks the beginning of a series of chapters covering filming. And essential topics such as growing up and losing internationally.
Some of the most essential and beloved cast members include Alan Rickman, Helen McCorry, and Richard Harris. Around 2 p.m., the meeting covers the film from start to finish. By allowing us to peek at unprecedented moments and hear stories from the cast that have never been shared before.
It may also have been the 20 years since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone came to theatres. But the people who made this film united with love. And laughter and started chatting as if it all started yesterday.
Gatherings are complex animals, not to mention gatherings about something as big and influential as Harry Potter. Despite the odds against them. The 20th anniversary of Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts is a total victory, bittersweet and heartwarming.
That only a group of people who are genuinely proud of what they collectively can achieve. A special can easily be overly sentimental and sweet. But otherwise strikes a sweet and impactful balance, using quotes and videos to illustrate anecdotes shared by the cast and director and making us feel like we’re ready.
I’ll admit that I’m completely biased as a person who has fallen in love with reading thanks to these books and gone to the midnight screenings of most films. Still, whether you’re a casual observer or a diehard fan, Return to Hogwarts is exciting film production.
There’s something extraordinary about hearing from people who have shared their experiences:
Especially those who have been through the same thing as children. It’s a big part of what The Return to Hogwarts does so well; It’s great to hear the British legends in these films as adults, of course, but learning what the central trio and their friends go through as children sheds light on something that isn’t often discussed in this setting. Watson was so weighed down by it that she thought about giving up, and others shared how lonely it can sometimes be.
The vulnerability of these actors ensures that all the emotional moments and sentimentality in “Back to Hogwarts” feel deserved. Not dull or cheap; While the first few encounters were performative, the following conversations felt personal and honest. You have to be heartless lest you be touched by a weeping Radcliffe, Grint and Watson thanking each other for the whole experience. It’s touching, especially when backed up by the iconic John Williams score.
When Hogwarts Returns is over, you may feel inspired to watch the movie again and immerse yourself in this magical world again. The writer behind all of this and his views may be a massive disappointment in real life (except archival footage, he doesn’t show up at the meeting), but there’s no denying that this actor and director magic continues. To live. We are delighted that we captured it sensitively and memorably.
Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts is a bittersweet and magical journey through the Alley of Remembrance, offering everything you could want from an extraordinary encounter.
