7 Jan - "Harry Potter" fans were not the only ones who found the recent photo blunder on "Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts" funny, as Emma Watson has also taken to social media to laugh at the mistake.

It is noted that fans recently went on Twitter to poke fun at the HBO Max special, after it went and used a childhood photo of actress Emma Roberts instead of Emma Watson in one of the early segments where the latter spoke about her own childhood reading "Harry Potter" books.

Following the mistake, Watson decided to repost the said photo of a little Emma Roberts wearing a pair of Minnie Mouse ears, and wrote, "I was NOT this cute", and tagged Roberts in the photo.

She also added the hashtag #emmasistersforever.

In response, Roberts reposted Watson's post on Instagram Story, and wrote, "Haha! I don't believe that!"


The producers of the show have already fixed the said mistake, thanking eagle-eyed fans for noticing it.

It is noted that that was not the only error in the said special, as it also misidentified James Phelps and Oliver Phelps, who played the twins Fred and George Weasley in the movies.
