Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, and Evanna Lynch, among others, will also be joining the tribute with in-depth interviews and cast conversations to touch on their enchanting journeys while filming the movies.

Earlier this month, a teaser was released, which featured Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid), Wright (Neville Longbottom) and Williams (Arthur Weasley) receiving their handwritten invitations and getting ready to board the Hogwarts Express.

Watson previously wrote about how "proud" she is to be part of the franchise, sharing a throwback photo of her and her fellow cast members.

"I am proud not just of what we as a group contributed as actors to the franchise but also as the children that became young adults that walked that path. I look at my fellow cast members now and I am just so proud of who everyone has become as people. I am proud we were kind to each other that we supported one another and that we held up something meaningful," she wrote. "Happy 20th Anniversary Potterheads! We hope you enjoy the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts which will stream New Year’s day, Jan. 1 on HBO Max. ⚡️ Lots to look forward to. 😊"

Radcliffe also reflected on the films, telling ET in July about rewatching the movies and sharing some of his favorite scenes. 

"They let me do the craziest stunt I was ever able to do," Radcliffe recalled of shooting a scene in the fourth film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, where Harry competed in the Triwizard Tournament. "It was like a 40 foot fall down on a roof. I was on a wire, but I was properly in free fall. It was only there to catch me at the end. And I was absolutely terrified. I worked a lot with the stunt department by then, and they were like, 'You can do this. Do you want to try it?' And I said yes. But then I got up there and was absolutely terrified."

"That was one of the things and we did it like two or three times, but it was for the fourth film," he continued. "I've realized since that that was very special circumstances in that set and I will never be allowed to do something like that again."
