2021 really does seem to be the year of the long-delayed reunion, doesn't it?

We've already had the casts of Friends and (most of) Sex & The City reunite this year, but arguably the most anticipated of the late is the upcoming Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone, director Chris Columbus will be joined by Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint to discuss the making of the movie as well as the impact and legacy of the franchise.

They'll be joined by fellow Hogwarts cast mates including Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, Evanna Lynch and Ian Hart.

Before that proper reunion though, Potter fans can enjoy the Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses, which will be available to watch with your NOW Entertainment Membership from Wednesday, 29 December.

Hosted by Helen Mirren, the special four-part event will showcase the biggest and best Wizarding World fans who will put their Harry Potter knowledge to the test, for the ultimate honour of being named House Cup champion.

And to get you in the Harry Potter mood, all eight of the original movies are available to watch with your NOW Cinema Membership, and they'll soon be joined by the first two Fantastic Beasts movies, when they're added to the NOW streaming library on Sunday, 19 December.

Once you've got all of that watching done, you can then enjoy Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts on the same day it lands in the States: Saturday, 1 January.
