The cast of Harry Potter gathered to give fans the reunion they’ve been waiting years for, but some viewers noticed a couple of blunders which the producers of the 20th anniversary episode have now addressed. 

Daniel Radcliffe, Ruper Grint, Emma Watson, and co welcomed us back to Hogwarts for the ultimate trip down memory lane for the 20th anniversary of the first film.

Landing on Sky and NOW on New Year’s Day, fans got stuck straight in after the festivities of the night before wore off, to catch-up with their favourite stars.

However, there appeared to be a couple of minor hitches after a photo of Emma Roberts was mistakenly used, and the Phelps twins were mislabelled during the reunion.

At one point, an adorable childhood photograph – supposedly of Hermione Granger star Emma – was shared with fans.

In the snap, the youngster is wearing Minnie Mouse ears – but some on social media pointed out it was actually a picture of Emma Roberts.

Fans soon took to Twitter to express their confusion over the error.

One sleuthing Potterhead even managed to find the photo on Roberts’ Instagram page from 2012.




Elsewhere, George Weasley actor Oliver Phelps couldn’t resist showing off a mistake which showed himself and his brother James wrongly labelled.

He captioned the screen grab: ‘I guess after all those pranks over the years somebody decided to get their revenge

‘It was fantastic to be part of the HP reunion. Hope you all enjoyed it #ReturnToHogwarts.’

Neville Longbottom star Matthew Lewis, who also took part in the reunion, summed up how all fans of the franchise were feeling in the comments.

He commented: ‘This is legit hilarious. Dude. Wtf? Haha.’

The producers of the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts special have now responded to the confusion, reassuring fans it will soon be updated.

A statement read: ‘Well spotted Harry Potter fans!

‘You brought an editing mistake of a mislabeled photograph to our attention. New version up shortly.’

Meanwhile, the reunion brought back a lot of memories for fans and the cast alike.

Those watching got an insight into some behind-the-scenes romances as Emma admitted her teenage crush on co-star Tom Felton, who played her nemesis Draco Malfoy.

The actress said she ‘fell in love’ with Tom as a youngster, adding: ‘I used to come in every day and look for his number on the call sheet, it was number seven, and if his name was on the call sheet, it was an extra exciting day.

‘He was three years above me and so for him he was like, you’re like my little sister.’

However, they insisted nothing ever happened romantically, but the pair are still the best of friends to this day – adorable.
