It is finally out! The trailer of the highly anticipated Harry Potter Reunion special is out. On Monday evening, HBO Max released a much-anticipated preview of 'Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts' that takes fans down the memory lane along with the cast of the popular movie franchise.

The upcoming special will reunite the actors and filmmakers from the eight-movie series, which will stream on January 1.

The trailer shows the film's principal cast- Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint reminiscing their time on the sets. Watson says, "It feels like no time has passed -- and loads of time has passed." Radcliffe says that something that had scared him was "the implication that the most meaningful thing in our life was done", and that seeing everyone is "joyous", he realises "it wasn`t though".

The only person missing from the reunion will be JK Rowling, the author of the books on which the films were based. Rowling has been under attack for remarks she had made about the trans community a year ago after retweeting an op-ed article on 'people who menstruate'.
