Harry Potter Movie Actors to Voice The Tales of Beedle the Bard Audiobook
A new audiobook from the enchanted world of Harry Potter is coming this spring. A bunch of actors from the Harry Potter movies (and one from the stage) are going to voice a Tales of Beedle the Bard audiobook. J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World took to Instagram to announce the project involving the popular collection of Wizarding children’s fairy tales.
“Immerse yourself in wizarding world fairy tales this spring, as The Tales of Beedle the Bard is released in audio for the first time,” the caption reads. “Written by J.K. Rowling, and read by Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts stars, this brand-new audiobook arrives 31 March 2020 from Audible. Pre-order yours via the link in our bio. #ListenToBeedle.”

The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a book of children’s stories written by J.K. Rowling. The book features five stories, one of which plays a pivotal role in the Harry Potter series. The other four receive only cursory attention, though.
Fans will get the chance to hear some familiar voice in the upcoming audiobook. The project will involve Lucius Malfoy’s Jason Isaacs, who will be reading The Warlock’s Hairy Heart while Professor Flitwick’s Warwick Davis takes on The Wizard and the Hopping Pot. Luna Lovegood’s Evanna Lynch reads The Fountain of Fair Fortune while Ginny Weasley’s Bonnie Wright will be reading Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump. On top of that, The Cursed Child‘s Noma Dumezweni (Hermione) reads The Tale of Three Brothers.
The Tales of Beedle the Bard audiobook will be available on Audible starting March 31. What do you think about the upcoming all-star audiobook? Will you give it a shot? Let us know in the comments section below.
