The British actress also spoke about the matter. “I knew that one day I would get a role in Harry Potter, and I’m thrilled to be part of the franchise’s 20th anniversary celebration. The films have inspired such enchantment and wonder for many of us, and it will be a pleasure to rekindle that magic for the countless fans who continue to revel in this fascinating world,” said Mirren.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses is scheduled to take place at the end of September. Episodes of the series will be broadcast later this year on American television and will soon be available on HBO Max.
