Wizarding World Welcomes Natalie Dormer with New Audiobook

Natalie Dormer, best known for her roles in Game of Thrones and Hunger Games, is stepping into the Wizarding World this fall. She will be narrating Harry Potter: A History of Magic, the new audiobook due out October 4.

The non-fiction book is based on real world tales of magic throughout the centuries. It will highlight how these tales influenced the world of Harry Potter. Dormer will also be joined by some familiar faces, or should we say voices? Listeners will be treated to interviews with Harry Potter audiobook narrators Stephen Fry and Jim Dale, illustrators Olivia Lomenech Gill and Jim Kay, and curators from the US and UK Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition.

Topics range from potions to transfiguration spells, echoing the structure of a Hogwarts curriculum. Delve into the historical documents of well-known real world magic such as the Salem Witch Trials while discovering various ancient artifacts and spells.

Dormer teases the audiobook content in a recent promo saying, “a charm to make yourself invisible, tips on how to capture a basilisk and a crystal ball that belonged to a witch known as Smelly Nelly.”

 

 

Potter fans are in for a magical treat just in time for Halloween. Harry Potter: A History of Magic is available for preorder on Audible now.
