As shown in the trailer, many members of the Harry Potter cast beyond those photographed for the poster also took part in the reunion, meeting in person on set at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London. Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange), Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), and Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort) are featured in the footage from the trailer, as is a dance sequence and orchestral performance reminiscent of the Yule Ball in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Actors Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Ian Hart (Professor Quirrell), and Toby Jones (the voice of Dobby) are also billed at the end of the trailer, as are producer David Heyman and directors Chris Columbus, Mike Newell, Alfonso Cuarón, and David Yates.
