Back in 2011, we watched through teary eyes as Harry Potter finally defeated the evil Lord Voldemort, and ultimately brought the magical world of Hogwarts to a close.
But... What's happened since the end of the magical Harry Potter franchise?
Yes, we've been teased with a couple of spin-offs (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, to be precise...) but apart from that, we've been sat, twiddling our thumbs, eagerly awaiting the return of our favorite witch and wizard gang.
But the reunion we've all been waiting for may have just happened... And we completely missed it!
Last weekend, certain members of the original Harry Potter cast were pictured together, sparking rumors of their potential return to their old characters. But, quite remarkably, nobody realized until the following day once the pictures were posted online.
