We've even been treated to a reunion.

Emma posted the snap with her fellow Hogwarts co-stars, Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Bonnie Wright (Ginnie Weasley), and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) along with the caption "Merry Christmas from us."

And it was recently announced that the world's biggest Harry Potter store would be opening...

And it's right here in the States!

It's in the heart of NYC.

The store will host the 'the largest collection of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts products in the world under one roof with everything from personalized robes and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans to a brand-new range of house wands with a design exclusive to the New York location’. And it's going to be set right in the very heart of the Big Apple, located next to the iconic Flatiron building on Broadway.

Okay, so now we've established just how popular the magical franchise is...

It'll come as no surprise that during lockdown, people have been watching the smash-hit movies once again.

And obviously, people began to speculate which characters were involved.

Rus Wetherell was the man in charge of the credits sequence.

And, after the speculation rose online, he explained the scene to Huffington Post: “There was an alcove in the artwork, it was kind of like an opportunity to have a couple of students hiding in there. "So I just threw a couple of feet down. It was just something there that was amusing for the adults in the audience and kids wouldn't really understand."

As for the characters involved?

Well, he explained that it was only supposed to be a "behind the bike shed" moment that "wasn't meant to be any particular character from the movie." Oh, and according to Wetherell, the couple's feet "are in an embrace" and "not having sex as everyone says."
