On January 1, HBO Max premiered the long-awaited special ‘Harry Potter, 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts’ commemorating the 20 years of the release of the first film of the wizard saga, ‘Harry potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.
the special is a beautiful celebration of what this film meant for many generations, as well as an opportunity to discover filming secrets, see unpublished footage of what was happening behind the scenes or learn the details of the kiss scene between Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint), which was very difficult to film between them.
Fans of the film waited like water in May for the meeting of the three main actors, Watson, Grint and Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter in the eight films of the saga. However, despite the success, the voices of many fans have been raised to denounce that the meeting was not real and that the three actors did not really meet; that they weren’t actually sharing a room to talk about the movies.
Many followers criticized on social networks that the poster with which HBO Max announced the special was a photomontage of all the actors, that the cast could not have gathered to take a special photo. But now it has been discovered that the scenes in which Ron, Emma and Daniel share memories have also been the result of video editing.
It has also been confirmed by Caitlin Cronenberg, the photographer who was asked to portray Rupert Grint for said poster. In her Instagram post she explains that “I was assigned to shoot Rupert Grint, who was shooting in Toronto and couldn’t travel to London for the shoot”:

The closing credits of the HBO Max special ‘Harry Potter: Hogwarts Returns’ confirm that there was a unit in the making. That is why some of the actor’s reactions appear poorly synchronized, because he was seeing Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe through a screen.
It is possible that the scenes Rupert Grint and Emma Watson share were shot at another time, bringing them together in a real way. The fans have discovered that Watson did not wear the same nail polish in different sequences, which would confirm that it was filmed in two different environments and occasions:

The project has been greatly praised by those responsible. “It has been an incredible journey since the debut of the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone film, and witnessing how it has evolved into this extraordinary interconnected universe has been magical, to say the least,” said Tom Ascheim, president of Warner Bros. Global Children, Youth and Classics. “This retrospective is a tribute to all the people whose lives were touched by this cultural phenomenon, from the talented cast and crew who poured their heart and soul into this extraordinary film franchise to the passionate fans who continue to keep the spirit of the Wizarding World alive 20 years later.”
Even executive producer Casey Patterson said the special was magical “with this amazing cast as they all come home to the original Hogwarts sets where they started 20 years ago. The excitement is palpable as they prepare to take their fans on a very special and personal journey through the making of these incredible films.”
