If you’ve ever wanted to listen to your quidditch history, you’re in luck.
Quidditch Through the Ages was released as an audiobook for the first time Thursday, narrated by actor Andrew Lincoln (known most recently for his role in The Walking Dead) voicing author Kennilworthy Whisp.
Lincoln’s a longtime Harry Potter fan, as he established in a video published by Pottermore:
The audiobook not only features Lincoln reading Quidditch Through the Ages, it also includes 90 minutes of bonus material: Coverage of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup, which JK Rowling originally wrote for Pottermore in 2014. The audio bonus includes live play-by-play coverage of the World Cup final narrated by Rita Skeeter (actress Annette Badland, of EastEnders and Doctor Who fame) and Ginny Potter (actress Imogen Church).
Pottermore offered a taste of the audiobook Thursday, publishing an interactive version of that 2014 Quidditch World Cup coverage, which includes some snippets from the new edition.
This is the second Hogwarts library book to get the audiobook treatment; an audio edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, read by actor Eddie Redmayne in character as Newt Scamander, came out last year.
Rowling first wrote Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in 2001 as a set of Harry Potter’s textbooks to benefit the charity Comic Relief. Part of the proceeds from the new edition will support both Comic Relief and Lumos.
