Emma Watson is known for many things, but she was first introduced to the world as Hermione Granger. The actress made her on-screen debut in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone when she was a child, and Watson reprised her role throughout the acclaimed Harry Potter series. When the final film debuted, Watson was a bonafide star who has now starred in multiple movies – but she definitely hasn’t forgotten her roots.
Last week, the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters, and Watson apparently loved the flick. The actress took to Twitter yesterday to ask fans where they had seen Fantastic Beasts yet and if they loved it as much as she did. Watson ended her tweet with a series of animal emojis, but it is only a matter of time until someone makes a magical beasts keyboard for Potterheads to download.
Shortly after the tweet was sent, Watson got a very special reply. Author JK Rowling responded to the actress’ tweet with a heart emoji, and fans everywhere awed over the adorable interaction.
Clearly, Watson is not the only person who fell for Fantastic Beasts. The film has garnered praise from both fans and critics, and its opening box office was a thing of beauty. The film raked in $75 million and stands to earn even more cash over the holiday weekend.
