Harry Potter Return To Hogwarts producers admit Emma Watson-Emma Roberts mistake in retrospective special


Harry Potter fans, also known as Potterheads, were excited when HBO Max's retrospective special titled Return To Hogwarts premiered on January 1 to celebrate 20 years of the franchise's first film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. However, fans were perplexed after spotting a mistake involving Emma Watson and Emma Roberts. 

In a special segment, pictures of the cast before the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone were shown. Instead of using a picture of Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the franchise, the production team accidentally used an image of Roberts wearing Minnie Mouse ears while eating breakfast.

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Oliver Phelps, James Phelps, Tom Felton, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Gary Oldman, Bonnie Wright, Evanna Lynch and others participated in the reunion.
