Potterheads were overjoyed as the Harry Potter reunion special was aired on the first of the New year 2022. However, some eagle-eyed viewers found a major photo blunder in the episode. 

Mistakenly, the makers had used the childhood image of actress Emma Roberts, instead of Emma Watson, who rose to fame as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films. 

Reacting to the goof-up, producers of the show admitted their mistake and released a statement promising a new version will be up soon.

"Well spotted Harry Potter fans!" reads the statement via EW. "You brought an editing mistake of a mislabeled photograph to our attention. New version up shortly."

In the sequence of the special, Watson, is talking about how she was obsessed with Harry Potter from a young age. As Watson is describing her love for her role and recalling her obsession with the JK Rowling's books, and how her father used to read books for her and her siblings, a photo of a young girl wearing Mickey Mouse ears features. However, viewers were shocked as they find out that the girl in the photo is in fact Emma Roberts, not Emma Watson.
