Watch Daniel Radcliffe Narrate “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”

If you’ve ever wanted to have DANIEL RADCLIFFE read “Harry Potter” to you . . . well, thanks to the coronavirus, it’s happening.

 

 

It’s for an ongoing series called “Harry Potter at Home“, which J.K. Rowling announced last month, to provide, quote, “a bit of magic to keep children amused and interested while we’re on lockdown.”

 

 

It’ll feature special guests reading the first “Harry Potter” book, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” . . . (a.k.a. “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”.)

 

 

Daniel reads the first chapter, “The Boy Who Lived”.  Future chapters will be released each week throughout the spring and into the summer.  There are 17 chapters in all.

 

 

Not all the readers have been announced, and not all of them are actors from the movies.  Some of the future readers will include David BeckhamDakota FanningEddie Redmayne, and Stephen Fry, who read the British version of the “Harry Potter” audiobooks.

 

 

To see Daniel reading the first chapter, go to WizardingWorld.com.  You can also sign-up to be notified when future chapters are released.  There’s also an audio-only version on Spotify.
