A Harry Potter cast WhatsApp group exists in real life (we're not kidding)

Try not to hyperventilate

If the hilarious outtake of Emma Watson's funniest habit on the set of Harry Potter didn't make your day, this news definitely will.

It looks like one of the celebrity WhatsApp groups we hoped existed IRL actually does, as Emma Watson has revealed there is an ongoing group chat between her and other members of the Harry Potter series.

Life. Made.

The big reveal took place during a Q&A session with Entertainment Tonight, after Emma was asked whether she still keeps in touch with her Harry Potter co-stars.

'We actually have a WhatsApp group' she said, explaining she set the chat up to ask them to screenings of her new movie, Beauty and the Beast. The film is featuring Disney's first ever gay character, so it's pretty monumental.

It's so nice to think that some of our favourite child actors remain friends years later, isn't it?

However, Emma revealed that it's proving difficult to get all of the film series' main cast in the same place for a meet-up. 'It's kind of like Pokémon,' she said. 'I'm trying to catch them all right now.'

A Harry Potter reunion though? We really hope she pulls it off.
