The first book in the mega-successful Harry Potter book franchise has a total of 17 chapters, and each chapter will be read by a different star, and then released to the Internet every week.
Radcliffe’s reading of the first chapter is already posted online, with the Wizarding World breaking the news through its official Twitter page.
As mentioned earlier, the star who played the Boy Who Lived is not the only celebrity being tapped by the franchise for the streamable chapter readings.
As noted by a news post on the Wizarding World website, the next few chapters will feature the participation of Stephen Fry—who did the audiobook voice reading before, Dakota Fanning, David Beckham, Noma Dumezweni—Hermione Granger in the original Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Broadway production, Claudia Kim—Nagini from Fantastic Beasts!, and even Newt Scamander himself—Eddie Redmayne.
It goes without saying that fans who grew up loving the Harry Potter books now have something to look forward to every week, despite being stuck at home. The same goes for those who haven’t read the books yet (tsk, Muggles). Even the author herself couldn’t help but tweet about it.
It’s times like these when everybody could all use some excitement, comfort, and a bit of magic—as delivered by stars—while sheltering at home amid a global health crisis.
Harry Potter At Home is not only a gift to Potterheads everywhere, but also something that parents can use to keep their kids from being bored or from spending too much time in front of that computer, smartphone, or tablet.
According to the Wizarding World, Harry Potter At Home will not only bring streamable chapter readings of Harry Potter, but also serve as a hub that offers puzzles, quizzes, engaging videos, and features, courtesy of Bloomsbury and Scholastic—the companies that published the Harry Potter books in the United Kingdom and the United States, respectively, as well as Warner Bros (film partner) and Audible (audiobook partner).
