Harry Potter at Home

As part of its "Harry Potter at Home" series, Wizarding World is giving Harry Potter lovers a new way to experience the first book in the series.

Celebrities from the franchise and beyond have come on board to read aloud one chapter each of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."

The first chapter was read by Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe.

Videos are being posted to every week.

Anyone interested in just the audio can find the Harry Potter at Home Reading Podcast on Spotify.

More Harry Potter actors on the roster to read future chapters include: Stephen Fry (Mr. Dursley), Claudia Kim (Nagini, Fantastic Beasts), Noma Dumezweni (Hermione, Cursed Child), Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander, Fantastic Beasts). Non-Potter celebrities on board with the project include David Beckham and Dakota Fanning.

Wizarding World promises that "more surprises and special appearances" are to come.

Besides just watching the actors read their chapters aloud, special artwork created by fans is being showcased. Looking ahead for the next 16 chapters, the Wizarding World team is asking for fans to continue submitting original artwork to its social media pages using the #HarryPotterAtHome tag and mentioning @wizardingworld.

Guidelines for submitting your artwork can be found here.

Anyone new to the Wizarding World website can also join to be sorted into their Hogwarts house, learn what your Patronus is, and more!
