As the world first started to focus on staying at home and healthy, Wizarding World announced the Harry Potter At Home hub. It features free ways to read and fresh entertainment for readers, including fun articles, activities, quizzes and more, with an emphasis on young readers and those who’d like to revisit the series from the start. With the news also came the release of the first book in the series for free via Audible in six languages and via the Libby and Sora apps in over 20 languages.
Now, the project is adding a super entertaining new phase– Celebrities reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s/Sorceror’s Stone at home, chapter-by-chapter!
Check out the trailer at the top of the post to take a peek at some of the celebrities who will read a chapter from home, including Eddie Redmayne, Noma Dumezweni, Dakota Fanning, David Beckham, and Stephen Fry.
In a bit of a thrill, the celebrity kicking it all off is none other than the Harry Potter of the big screen, Daniel Radcliffe, who hasn’t been particularly involved with any series celebrations since wrapping the films.
Click on the photo below to watch Daniel read the first chapter as fan art from around the world is displayed. But be aware– Daniel reads as quickly as he talks!
A new chapter read by a different celebrity will be released every week. You can register now to receive a newsletter with updates as they come out.
