While there was so much to love about the “Harry Potter” reunion, even this nearly flawless film wasn’t entirely free of blunders. One section of the HBO special was devoted to the “Harry Potter” actors and actresses gushing about their adoration for the franchise, even before they were cast in the films. As Emma Watson fondly recalled discovering this fantasy series with her family for the first time, a supposed childhood photo of the actress simultaneously appeared on screen. The adorable flick portrays “Watson” eating breakfast with a large pair of Minnie Mouse ears on her head. While the photo is undoubtedly adorable, it’s unfortunately a picture of the wrong Emma. Yes, that’s right, the picture is actually a childhood photo of another famous actress: Emma Roberts (via Us Weekly). We’ve got to admit though, the resemblance is uncanny.
An eagle-eyed fan took to Twitter to call out HBO Max’s magical mix-up, which resulted in Warner Bros releasing an official response. “Well spotted Harry Potter fans!” Warner Bros. shared with Entertainment Weekly. “You brought an editing mistake of a mislabeled photograph to our attention. New version up shortly.” The savvy fan’s post already has nearly 7,000 likes and over one thousand re-tweets. Nice detective work, @vee_delmonico99. We must have a Ravenclaw on our hands, folks!
