How the Harry Potter game show Trivia attracted guests like Tom Felton and superfan Pete Davidson
Harry potter is back! Well, sort of. Prepare for gorging on movie series again, because there is a new Harry potter game show hosted by the great Helen Mirren called Harry Potter: Hogwarts Houses Tournament coming to TBS and Cartoon Network. Not only is it more Harry potter amazing content (even if it’s in the form of a trivia game), but there are some pretty nice famous guests. The next Harry potter the game show may have attracted guests like Tom Felton and Pete Davidson, who is apparently a superfan, and now we know how successful the project was.
The 20th anniversary of Harry potter and the sorcerer’s stonethe release of s is approaching, which marks the first moments we have seen Harry potter come to life on the screen. That’s a big deal for fans, so it makes sense that a franchise-based game show would be given to us around the same time, along with a fairly sweet reunion.
And the Harry potter meeting is not the only thing that Harry potter veterans like Tom Felton and Matthew Lewis, who played Draco Malfoy and Neville Longbottom respectively in the movies, will show up, as they are definitely involved in Hogwarts Houses Tournament. In an interview with Hollywood journalist, show producer Yasmin Shackleton explained how they got former cast members to participate in the game show, saying:
Apparently, the cast of the new trivia show doesn’t just focus on franchise alumni, and has also brought some seriously famous Harry potter superfans on board too, including SNL cast member Pete Davidson. In the same interview, Yasmin Shackleton explained the thought process behind choosing Davidson for the show, citing his many tattoos – some of which are surprisingly dedicated to Harry potter. Here’s what Shackleton said:
Having not just one, but multiple tattoos on your body forever dedicated to a fandom is honestly pretty badass and takes some major dedication. Personally, I hope Pete Davidson and Tom Felton appear in the same episode and are about to fanboyer. Harry potter together, because I would like to see who knows the most about Harry potter: the superfan with the tattoos or the superfan who was actually in the movies.
Hogwarts Houses Tournament premieres in a few days on November 28, with Gryffindor vs. Hufflepuff being the first episode. You can watch each of the four episodes when they premiere on TBS or Cartoon Network at 8 p.m. ET. Harry Potter 20th Anniversary Reunion, you will have to wait until January to connect.
