Potterheads, listen up! Do you want to know the difference between demiguises and nifflers? Perhaps you’d like to know just how to safely approach and capture an erumpent? Well, you’re in luck, because you can now learn about all the magical beasts in the wizarding world from Hufflepuff Newt Scamander!
The Pottermore Correspondent announced just yesterday that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them lead actor Eddie Redmayne has finished lending his voice to the audio version of the Hogwarts library book. Author J.K. Rowling is also delighting us with a new foreword from Newt himself, along with the addition of six new beast descriptions not in the original printed version. You might catch him recounting his memories of his first visit to New York City, and perhaps catch a few of the beasts making their presence known too!
Listen to the famed magizoologist and Hufflepuff as he teaches you about magical creatures
In this exclusive video excerpt from Pottermore, we get a chance to see Newt…I mean, Eddie narrating parts of the book. You can almost imagine sitting in his class, watching in amazement as he shows off the beasts he’s keeping in his magic suitcase. In fact, I think I’m going to go and check for my owl. I’m sure my Hogwarts letter is coming any day now…
The digital audio book of the Hogwarts Library book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, narrated by Eddie Redmayne, is on pre-order from Audible UK, Audible US and Audible Australia now and will be released on 14 March 2017.
