Spotify and Wizarding World have joined forces to bring Harry Potter to headphones. The Harry Potter at Home series is a collection of weekly audio recordings of the much-loved novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
In true Hollywood fashion, Harry Potter at Home will host a star-studded line-up of some of the biggest names in entertainment and the Wizarding World.
Daniel Radcliffe, Stephen Fry, David Beckham and Dakota Fanning are among a handful of celebrities who have lent their voices to the series. Each week, the stars will narrate parts of this iconic book aiming to surprise and delight fans and families around the world.
Motivations to create the series are fairly apparent given the current times, and it arrives just in the nick of time as family-themed content grows by 19% between April 27th – May 3rd according to the latest figures from Podtrac.
Starting from 5th May, the audio chapters will be available exclusively on Spotify, Spotify Kids and harrypotterathome.com for both free and Premium users. All 17 chapters of the book will be released by the middle of the summer.
