Audible, one of the largest platforms in the world of audiobooks, will be releasing the audio version of J.K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard. A bit meta, as the stories are mentioned in the Harry Potter franchise, The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a collection of magical short stories told within the wizarding world.
Releasing March 31, you will be able to hear the voices of Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Noma Dumezweni (Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick), and Sally Mortemore (Madame Prince). Each segment tackles different tales or parts of the book, bringing it all to life. It is certainly lovely that Audible is keeping it in the Harry Potter family for us fans!
Similar to when the book was initially released, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Lumos Foundation, a charity founded by J.K. Rowling herself to help children all over the world living in orphanages and institutions. The goal is to find them all loving families. You can pre-order the audiobook through Audible now!
