Actors who have performed in Harry Potter screen and stage adaptations will narrate a new audiobook from the Potterverse.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard appears in the Harry Potter series as a collection of stories told to young wizards and witches; J.K. Rowling fleshed it out and made it available to Muggles as part of her Hogwarts Library tie-in series in 2016.

And now, on March 31, the book will be available in an audio version, narrated by:

  • Noma Dumezweni, who played Hermione in The Cursed Child on the West End and Broadway.

  • Jason Isaacs, who played Lucius Malfoy in the original Harry Potter movies.

  • Evanna Lynch, who played Luna Lovegood in the original Harry Potter movies.

  • Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the original Harry Potter movies.

  • Jude Law, who played Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movies.

The Bookseller reports that 90 percent of proceeds from the audiobook will benefit the Lumos Foundation, which Rowling created to “have children worldwide out of institutions and in loving family care by 2050.”
