It’s been almost five years since we last saw the “Harry Potter” squad on the big screen, and we’ve missed seeing our favorite wizards fighting the good fight together. Thankfully, there are always reunions to help ease our nostalgic pangs.
Recently, several cast members joined forces
to practice magic to attend the third annual “Harry Potter” celebration at the Universal Orlando Resort, home to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park.
Stars Rupert Grint (Ron Weasely), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) and Katie Leung (Cho Chang) kept the ~magic~ alive at the event, discussing all things “Harry Potter.”
The real winner, however, was Lewis’ mustache and sideburnsGerardo Mora / Getty Images
They’re for his role as Sgt. Drum Drummond on Season 5 of the BBC crime show “Ripper Street.”

And the boys talked about “Thatcher, ’Dumb and Dumber,’ Ice Cream Trucks and the Queen Mum” in an unscripted video.

But perhaps the best reunion moment was this sibling pic of Ron and Ginny.
“Family time ? #stillnoredheademoji,” captioned Wright while chillin’ at the Islands of Adventure theme park. This should be their Christmas card this year, just sayin’.
According to E! Online, attendees could “take a wand master class with the man who helped choreograph the wand duels.” Magic is real, everyone.
Even better, a featurette for the “Harry Potter” prequel “Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them” dropped over the weekend, and it’s making us absolutely giddy with excitement. Eddie Redmayne, we see you.
If you think you can handle any more scoop from the “Harry Potter” weekend-palooza, then you’ll be pleased to know that even the cast members can’t get into the sorting house they want.
“Well…,” captioned Leung. Cho Chang was definitely a member of the Ravenclaw house, but Pottermore decided she was meant to be placed in Gryffindor instead. Whoops.
