Meanwhile, Emma Watson shared her memories of Hogwarts and the film and she wrote: "Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favorite fictional character of all time. I think a journalist once said it was irritating how many times during an interview I mentioned how lucky I was and started counting... But I damn well knew!And still know." She signed off her extensive post with these words: "I still miss the crew who made these films all the time. Thank you for all of your hard work too - I know your contributions sometimes get overlooked. Happy 20th Anniversary Potterheads."
The Harry Potter series of films, distributed by Warner Bros, were based on JK Rowling's famous novels. We are so ready to get into the Hogwarts Express.
