The highly-anticipated Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts made its magical premiere on HBO Max last New Year's Day and it got fans emotional as they see the original cast members reunite again a decade after the last film and its celebration of the legacy of the franchise that inspired millions of fans around the world.

However, some fans spotted a mistake in the special in which they showed a photo of a young Emma Roberts during the part where Emma Watson was reflecting back on her childhood. Soon after, the producers released a statement in which they promised that they are going to fix the error as soon as possible.


Now, Watson took to Instagram to address the error in which she posted the wrong photo along with the caption "I was NOT this cute" and a laughing emoji. She also tagged Roberts and used the hashtag "#emmasistersforever."

Roberts responded through her Instagram story in which she said, "Haha! I don't believe that!"


It is great that Watson and Roberts just laughed off the error, which has now been fixed according to some reports. As much as they try to avoid it, mistakes can happen and at least they acknowledged them and correct them in just a short amount of time. This is something that the actresses and the fans can just laugh about moving forward.

The reunion special received positive responses from both fans and critics because of its effective nostalgia and the celebration of the franchise by honoring all the people involved as well as giving the viewers an insight into how the magical world of Hogwarts came to life and how it became one of the biggest movie franchises of all time.
