Emma Watson just gave the funniest response to the Harry Potter revival mix-up.

The long-awaited 20th anniversary reunion of the Harry Potter franchise had fans sitting on the edge of their seats to revisit their favorite child wizards. The program brought back the iconic cast who portrayed the Harry Potter characters in the eight-movie series.

It starred boy wizard Harry Potter himself, played by Daniel Radcliffe; Rupert Grint, who nailed the part of best friend Ronald Weasley; and, of course, beloved actress Emma Watson who personified Hermione Granger.

The special, on HBO Max, made headlines earlier this month for making a critical error when it came to Watson, the iconic actress who brought the quick-witted Granger to life.

During the special, titled Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, a photo was displayed on screen that had fans scratching their heads.

Now Watson is addressing the photo, as seen below.

The photo, which was taken in 2012, shows an adorable blonde girl sitting at a table and wearing a pair of Mickey Mouse ears.

The problem with the photo? It's the wrong person.

Funnily enough, while the photo intended to be a childhood photo of Emma Watson, it was actually a childhood photo of American Horror Story actress Emma Roberts.

The hilarious blunder left fans howling as many called out the producers of the special on their critical error. Fans waited to see how Watson would respond to the mix-up of the Emmas.

Watson came back with the funniest response to the error on Instagram.

She wrote:

"I was NOT this cute 😂 @emmaroberts #emmasistersforever"

Watson's response has fans loving her even more as it shows her humor and exemplifies her humble personality.

The post has gone viral, garnering over four million likes and 20,000 comments.

The reunion grabbed hearts and minds of Harry Potter fans around the globe, many of whom expressed relief at the absence of Harry Potter author JK Rowling who faces credible, substantiated allegations of transphobia, racism and antisemitism in her writing and personal life for over 20 years.

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is currently streaming on HBO Max.
