It's been almost a decade since Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint graced our screens as the likes of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, with the final instalment of the Harry Potter movie series hitting cinemas back in July 2011. Thankfully though, this weekend we saw the whole HP gang come back together for a reunion special – and wow, what an emotional special it was. Yep, we did cry approximately 3546349 times. No judging here, pls and thnx.

(Happy) tears aside, whilst most of us were transfixed by the show's cast reminiscing about what filming the movies was like behind-the-scenes, some fans spotted a hilariously, awkward mixup.

Taking to Twitter, one Harry Potter fan pointed out the error, and now we really can't unsee it. "GUYS HELP ME THAT'S LITERALLY EMMA ROBERTS NOT EMMA WATSON," the fan tweeted, alongside a screengrab from the reunion episode and a screenshot of Emma Roberts' Instagram account.

The photo in question was posted by American Horror Story star Emma Roberts back in 2012, and shows her eating breakfast while wearing a pair of Minnie Mouse ears. But the sweet photo was mistakenly used in the Harry Potter Reunion episode as a childhood snap of Emma Watson.

It didn't take long before other fans noticed the mixup, flooding social media with comments on the matter. "@hbomax a young Emma but not Watson," one viewer commented on Emma Roberts' Instagram photo, with another adding "@hbomax everything all right!?"

A third fan tweeted, "NO WAY" with another fan responding: "Bestie I’m dead."

Tbf, we can kinda see the similarities between the two, but we've got one question: How did Emma Watson miss this?
