Accio good news! The Walking Dead’s biggest star Andrew Lincoln has leant his voice to Pottermore’s upcoming Harry Potter audiobook Quidditch Through The Ages. “The wizarding world of Harry Potter is one that I always wanted to get the chance to step into,” Lincoln said in a statement. “What makes this project so special, is not only that it allowed me the opportunity to create something my kids love and enjoy, but it also supports great causes, like Comic Relief.” Watch Lincoln announce the news below:
Comic Relief is a charity based in the UK that strives to rid the world of poverty through donations and drives like Red Nose Day, which Lincoln has contributed to through Walking Dead and Love Actually parodies. This is the first time Quidditch Through The Ages, which was written in 2001 for Comic Relief, has been available as an audiobook. The book will be packed with an hour and half of extra content, including The History of The Quidditch World Cup (which was written for Pottermore in 2014 by JK Rowling) along with commentary by Ginny Potter (Imogen Church) and Rita Skeeter (Annette Badland).
The book, which was written by Rowling under the alias Kennilworthy Whisp, will “chart the game’s history from its early origins in the medieval mists on Queerditch Marsh through to the modern-day sport loved by so many wizard and Muggle families around the world.” Fans can pre-order it now for $14.95 or download it when it releases April 15th, 2018.
