Two Unscripted Specials Headed to HBO Max in Honor of First ‘Harry Potter’ Film’s 20th Anniversary





It’s been two decades since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone premiered on film, and Warner Media Kids and Family is making sure the milestone doesn’t go unnoticed. The company is planning a five-night unscripted event featuring a Harry Potter fan quiz competition series and a dedicated retrospective special on HBO Max, Cartoon Network and TBS later this year.

The unscripted game show will feature superfans testing their knowledge of all things Wizarding World-related. The limited series will include four one-hour quiz challenges, hundreds of trivia questions and special guest surprises, followed by the film retrospective. There’s even a play-along component so you can test your knowledge at home. The series is being produced by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon.

Think you’re a superfan who’s got what it takes? “For those who demonstrate bravery similar to that of Godric Gryffindor and are looking to assess their Harry Potter expertise on camera, casting is now underway in the U.S.” WarnerMedia states. You can learn more about the show at

“To celebrate the dedicated fans old and new who have passionately kept the Wizarding World magic alive in so many forms for decades, these exciting specials will celebrate their Harry Potter fandom in a must-see multiplatform TV event,” said Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics. “All Potter fans can gear up for this ultimate one-of-a-kind celebration by embracing their inner Hermione Granger and studying their Wizarding World knowledge. For fans who have always wanted to discover what it might be like to take the O.W.L. exams, this is as close as they are going to get!”
