The short clip sees Robbie Coltrane, Matthew Lewis and Mark Williams all get ready to travel back to Hogwarts.

Viewers also think the woman spotted reading the newspaper at the start of the teaser is Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange, while others think the woman walking through the station is Emma Watson as Hermione Granger.

One thing we know for sure is that the show will feature interviews with leading stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma.

Other stars of the reunion will include Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, and Evanna Lynch, and ‘many more’.

The Twitter caption reads: "The invitation you've been waiting for has arrived. Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: #ReturnToHogwarts is coming to HBO Max on New Year's Day."
