Holiday parties are usually a good excuse to get all of your friends together, and it seems the Harry Potter cast used the season’s festivities for a little Hogwarts reunion. On Wednesday, December 18, Tom Felton (known to HP fans as Draco Malfoy) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) posted photos on Instagram that showed a few members of the old crew from the beloved film franchise had joined forces for a party—and even reignited old arguments about which house is better.
In the photos Felton poses with Watson, Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), and Matt Lewis (Neville Longbottom). He hinted in the caption that there had definitely been some discussion about past rivalries at Hogwarts: “Seasons greetings from my school mates. @mattdavelewis & I mid debate x #gryfindorVSslytherin,” he joked in the post.
Watson added her own little tribute on Instagram, but she was much more diplomatic. She posted one of Felton’s photos in black-and-white and wrote simply, “Merry Christmas from us,” adding a smiley face. Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) aren’t in any of the images, but we’re guessing they were with the cast in spirit.
In addition to just being really sweet, the photos have continued fueling some of those Watson-Felton dating rumors. Fans have been begging the two former costars to date after they were spotted hanging out a few times and posting on each other’s social media accounts. Most recently Felton shared an image taken while he was teaching Watson to play guitar and raved that she was a “quick learner.”
The two of them spending part of the holiday together is an interesting development, to be sure, but then again, these friends have known each other since they were kids—maybe they were just feeling nostalgic about their Hogwarts days.
