Are you or any of your household Harry Potter fans? Here in the team we have a fans in a range of ages and levels of fandom who are loving this little find!
The team at WizardingWorld.com have come up with a treat for all Harry Potter fans but we’ll let them explain this for you:
so many of us still staying at home, we are asking friends from the Wizarding World and beyond to read all seventeen chapters of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone for us.
Some of the best-loved faces from global entertainment, music and sport have lent their voices to the story they love by recording videos of themselves reading the timeless first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone.We, alongside J.K. Rowling, have announced seven of those readers from the stellar line-up today.Excitingly, Daniel Radcliffe, Stephen Fry, David Beckham, Dakota Fanning, Claudia Kim, Noma Dumezweni, and Eddie Redmayne are amongst the cast of narrators, with more surprises and special appearances from across the Wizarding World and beyond to come. Each will be reading different sections of this iconic book – with its themes of family, friendship, courage and overcoming adversity – to families around the world.And here is a sneak peek!
As the figurehead of the Harry Potter films for so many years, we hope you love watching this incredibly special video of Daniel revisiting Harry’s adventure – this time not on a film set, but through the pages of the first book.
While you can watch Daniel’s reading right here, you can also listen in audio form thanks to Spotify, who will be hosting all of our readings on their platform. You can listen via Spotify or Spotify Kids – so parents and carers can enjoy the series with younger fans too.
We look forward to new narrators every week as they take turns to read different sections of the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone, until we reach the end with Chapter Seventeen. Keep an eye out for some very special surprise cameos along the way too.’
