An audiobook version of J.K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard will be out next month. To everyone's surprise, the book will actually feature the narrations of some of the actors from the Harry Potter films.
The official Instagram account of the Wizarding World recently posted a video with the caption that says The Tales of Beedles the Bard will be read by Harry Potter and Fantastic Beast stars. The audiobook is already available for pre-order on Audible.
As most Harry Potter fans would know, The Tales of Beedle the Bard book was released in 2008 and it contains the Tale of the Three Brothers, which is how the Deathly Hallows was created. Many years later, it finally gets an audiobook treatment and even by some of the film's stars.
Bonnie Wright, who plays Ginny Weasley in the movie series, will read Babbity Rabbity and Her Cackling Stump. While Evanna Lynch, who played Luna Lovegood, will be reading The Fountain of Fair Fortune.
Lucis Malfoy actor Jason Isaacs will read The Warlock's Hairy Heart, and Warwick Davis, who played Professor Flitwick, will be reading The Wizard and the Hopping Pot. The Tales of Three Brothers will be read by Noma Dumezweni, who played Hermione Granger in the original Cursed Child production.
The most prominent of the bunch is Jude Law, who was known for playing the young Albus Dumbledore inthe Fantastic Beasts films. He'll be reading Dumbledore's notes from the books. Last but not least, Sally Mortermore, Hogwart's resident librarian Madam Pince, will be reading the introduction.
The audiobook arrives on March 31 of this year and the proceeds for the book will go to Rowling's Lumos children's charity.
