The Harry Potter fandom is well and truly alive this week ahead of this Saturday’s Return to Hogwarts reunion special, and the passionate shipping of one couple in particular has already been reignited.
Potterheads went wild when a behind the scenes clip from the making of the 20th anniversary special saw Emma Watson leap into the arms of her former co-star Tom Felton.
If you haven’t come across Hermione/Draco die-hards yet, then you’re sure to meet them sooner rather than later.
Waltzing around the room together while Emma wears a white dress, the pair have unintentionally created the dream Malfoy-Granger wedding that fans have always dreamed of.
Check out the behind the scenes clip here:
Draco and Hermione stans are already losing their minds over the clip, and pulling screenshots from the reunion to push the fictional relationship on Romione (Ron + Hermione) supporters.
We wish we knew exactly what was going on in this scene but, from the looks of it, without getting you too excited, the set almost resembles a recreation of the Yule Ball from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
If you weren’t looking forward to watching Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts already, we’re pretty confident these new pictures will do the trick.

Sharing a clip of Emma and Tom dancing together on the set of Return to Hogwarts, one shook fan wrote: “WHAT IS THIS I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.”
Another fan posted some screenshots of their dance, insisting that this is what a “Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger wedding anniversary would be like.”

Comparing the new photos of Emma and Tom dancing together to some much earlier snaps from the set of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, another fan wrote: “It feels like no time has passed and loads of time has passed.”
Equally as eloquent, another excited fan wrote: “OMG OMG I AM DYING.”
Confirming that these new photos of Emma and Tom have officially broken the internet, a third fan wrote: “Emma Watson and Tom Felton make everyone COMBUST into a pile of heart emojis.”

We’re not exactly sure where the fascination with Draco and Hermione first began, but an interview with Emma Watson back in 2018, where she confessed she used to have a “huge crush” on Tom Felton, definitely added fuel to the fire.
She told Seventeen magazine at the time: “He totally knows. We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that’s cool.”
We’ll see about that, Emma. This reunion dance looks pretty serious to us!
