Created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of the first Harry Potter movie, the special featured almost every major player involved in the movies, but it didn't take fans of the franchise very long to spot that there had been one or two boo-boos overlooked.

It resulted in a fun back-and-forth between the two Emmas, with Watson posting the image to her Instagram account along with the caption saying "I was NOT this cute", to which Roberts replied on her account "Haha! I don't believe that!".
