Daniel Radcliffe Reads Harry Potter For First Video In New Series

Daniel Radcliffe last played Harry Potter in screen nearly a decade ago, but the actor continues to be most associated with the role of the boy wizard. Radcliffe has returned to the world of magic and Muggles this week by reading a chapter of JK Rowling’s first Potter book for a new online series.

Titled Harry Potter at Home, the series will feature various celebrities taking turns to read a different chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone to use the American title). Radcliffe kicks off today, May 5, by reading Chapter One, “The Boy Who Lived.”

A trailer reveals that other readers will include Eddie Redmayne, who stars in the spin-off Fantastic Beasts series, Stephen Fry, Dakota Fanning, David Beckham, Claudia Kim, and Noma Dumezweni. Check the trailer out below, then watch Radcliffe read “The Boy Who Lived” here:

There are 17 chapters of the book in total, and they will be released weekly throughout the summer. In addition, an audio-only version will be available on Spotify.

The third movie in the Fantastic Beasts series is currently set for a November 2021 release. Filming was due to start this summer, but with all major film productions currently suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s unknown if it will still make that date. The movie is currently untitled, and will star Redmayne, Jude Law, and Johnny Depp.
