“I knew someday I’d get a Harry Potter role, and I’m so pleased to take part in the 20-year film celebration,” said Mirren in a statement. “The films inspired such enchantment and wonder for so many of us, and it will be such a treat to reignite that magic for the countless fans who continue to revel in this spellbinding world.”

As Mirren reveals, the event programming celebrates the 20th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the first film in the eight-film franchise based on the beloved book series. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses will premiere later this year as a simulcast event on Cartoon Network’s ACME Night and TBS. Following the simulcast, viewers can stream the show when it premieres on HBO Max.
