Potter-heads, assemble!

Ladies and gents, chapter one, 'The Boy Who Lived' will be read by none other than... Harry Potter actor, Daniel Radcliffe, of course.

Talk about the perfect narrator.

During quarantine, many of us have been delving back into JK Rowling's magical book series, but this concept is something extra special.

The chapters read-throughs will be available from the Wizarding World: Harry Potter At Home hub.
