As the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter takes place in November, Chris Columbus, the director of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban revealed the one key detail he would like to change in the movie. In an interview with Polygon on the occasion of the film's 20th anniversary, Columbus revealed that the design of Harry's famous scar was very difficult to get right and the director still isn't sure if they ever did.

Fans of the Harry Potter franchise know how important the scar on Harry's forehead is, as it was the symbol of Voldermort's failure to kill him as a child. Columbus said, "Harry’s scar was so incredibly difficult to get right. I don’t know if we ever really did, to be honest with you. But we struggled with that for months. When you’re working with kids under 16, or something, you can’t really use prosthetics, or you couldn’t back then. We couldn’t really utilize a prosthetic scar, which is kind of what I saw, like a real scar. That’s the one detail, an important detail, that I wish I could go back and tweak."

Meanwhile, the cast of Harry Potter, Tom Felton, Rupert Grint, Bonnie Wright, and James Phelps who played the role of Ron, Ginny, and Fred Weasley, respectively recently reunited. Felton took to his Instagram and shared the picture of their mini-reunion and fueled the rumors of a Harry Potter 20th anniversary special. Additionally, Bonnie further fueled the excitement by posting a picture of herself on her IG story with the caption, ''I just filmed something very exciting that made me very emotional'' and added a lightning bolt emoji.
