Soon to graduate from Brown University, Emma Watson will soon receive her degree in English Literature at the graduation ceremony on May 25. With another chapter of her life coming up, the 24-year-old British star is set to reunite with her "Harry Potter" costars, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.

After promoting her epic movie "Noah" with Australian actor Russel Crowe and "Perks of the Wallflower" co-star Logan Lerman, the Ivy League educated actress is reportedly going to star for the first time in Bollywood. Best known for her role as Hermione Granger, Watson spent some time at England's Oxford University before finishing her studies in Brown.

The English actress was cast as one of the three leads in the "Harry Potter" series when she was nine. Now, after eight films against the franchise she established a long list of acting roles in her young age.

The three originals are reuniting once again not because they are making a new sequel but to appear in a new footage that will play in the newest ride at Universal Studios in Orlando. The new 3-D "Harry Potter" ride is called Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts and it is scheduled to open this summer.

The ride will feature a recreated scene from "Harry Potter's" final installment "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" and it will serve as the main attraction inside The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. During the film clips, "Harry, Ron and Hermione break into Gringotts bank to retrieve a magical object that will help defeat Lord Voldemort," according to the Universal Studio website.

Although the three long-time friends rarely speaks to each other, each of them are happy for the success of the other. The reunion is another opportunity for the three friends to catch up after breaking free from their child roles.

"I haven't spoken to her in quite a while," says Radcliffe in an interview posted on Perez Hilton. "I'm sure we'll see each other at some point. We were all together for 10 years, so we're excited to meet new people now."
