Harry Potter star teases cryptic Hogwarts Legacy announcement

Harry Potter's Draco Malfoy actor Tom Felton has teased something to do with RPG game Hogwarts Legacy, with a livestream taking place involving them soon.

Some sort of Hogwarts Legacy Draco Malfoy collaboration is on the way, as the Harry Potter film actor Tom Felton has appeared in a brief teaser to do with an upcoming YouTube video for the RPG game. While the cryptic tease still doesn’t reveal what is planned for Hogwarts Legacy with Felton’s involvement, it’ll definitely send the rumour mill into overdrive.

While I wouldn’t be surprised to hear about some sort of Hogwarts Legacy mod that adds Malfoy into the game exists, Felton’s involvement is as close to the real thing as we’ll get. So while Felton isn’t a part of the Hogwarts Legacy cast, with this official announcement that might change.

“It’s true then,” the official Hogwarts Legacy Instagram account teases. “Tom Felton has come to Hogwarts. Check back in on May 9 at 9 am PT to watch.” That’s also 12pm ET, 4pm GMT, 5pm CEST, and May 10 at 3am AEDT as well.

As of right now, it’s unclear exactly how Felton will be involved with Hogwarts Legacy, but this looks to be some sort of YouTube video or livestream. Felton’s Draco Malfoy character is alive around two centuries after the time period in Hogwarts Legacy, so I wouldn’t go in hoping for Malfoy to appear in the actual game, but we just don’t know yet.

The teaser starts off with Hogwarts Legacy companion Sebastian’s introduction to the player character in the game, with Felton turning his head to the camera and replying, “Hello Sebastian,” but that’s all we get.

The creator of the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years. While WB Games says “JK Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game”, it is based on her work and it’s still unclear if she will receive royalties from its sales.
