Tom Felton jokingly takes credit for the Weasley twin actors being incorrectly labeled in ‘Harry Potter’ reunion

Tom Felton jokingly takes credit for the Weasley twin actors being incorrectly labeled in ‘Harry Potter’ reunion…  The Phelps twins, who played George and Fred Weasley, were mislabeled in  “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts.”

Throughout the HBO Max special, Oliver Phelps, who played George Weasley, and James Phelps, who played Fred Weasley, had their names swapped on the screen.

On Sunday, Oliver posted a screenshot from the special on Instagram, noting the mistake.

He joked about the situation in the caption, which read, in part, “I guess after all those pranks over the years somebody decided to get their revenge.”

Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the films, jokingly took credit for the mix-up.

He commented, “It was my doing 🙂 #weaslebee #returntohogwarts,” adding a snake emoji is greater than a lion emoji to symbolize his character’s house, Slytherin (represented by a snake), and the Weasley twins’ house, Gryffindor (represented by a lion).

The “#weaslebee” is a reference to Draco’s insulting nickname toward the Weasleys in the series.

The mistake almost feels like a nod to the Weasley twins, whose first scene in the movie involves them swapping names to confuse their mother.

The error has since been corrected in the most recent version of the special.

The special also appeared to use a photo of Emma Roberts instead of ‘Harry Potter’ star Emma Watson

Fans also noticed that a childhood photo of Roberts was mistaken for Watson during the special.

The photo, which appeared on screen as Watson spoke about growing up loving “Harry Potter,” was posted on Roberts’ Instagram in February 2012. Multiple accounts tagged HBO Max’s Instagram on the post.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the special told Metro UK that the error would be fixed.
