After all this time? Always.
It's been six years since the eighth and final Harry Potter movie in the famously magical series debuted. It was the widely-loved film franchise that launched the careers of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson — who most recently stars as Belle in Disney’s live-action revival of Beauty and the Beast.
Though it’s been several years since Potterheads and J.K. Rowling fans everywhere watched with awe and anticipation as the Boy Who Lived defeated the Dark Lord once and for all, fans still remain relentlessly dedicated to the stars, the characters, and the Wizarding World.
In what is potentially the franchise’s greatest magic trick of all, the actors made famous for their mystical roles seem to only be improving with age. They’ve certainly changed a lot over the years — after all, they grew up in front of our eyes, as if we were creepily watching through Sirius Black’s two-way mirror.
It’s magical to see just how much Harry, Ron, Hermione, and their friends have transformed in the years since the first movie premiered in 2001. We’re taking a note from Hermione’s book and using a Time Turner to go back in time and take a look at photos of the HP cast then and now.
