Today we bring exciting news from Pottermore Publishing and Audible! A huge feat in audio storytelling is coming soon – with all seven Harry Potter books set to be retold with a full-scale ensemble cast, using spellbinding innovations in audio production.

Anyone got any Extendable Ears? You might need some extras for this big upcoming project.

Scheduled for late 2025, get ready to enjoy the Harry Potter audiobooks in a whole new way – as this latest project plans to cast over a hundred voice artists to take on some of your most beloved wizarding world characters.

Each of the seven English language audiobooks will be released sequentially for a global audience, and will sit alongside and complement the iconic single-voice English language recordings by Jim Dale and Stephen Fry.

Here’s a little announcement video to get you even more excited.

The project is set to be a real tour de force in audio production. Alongside a new ensemble cast, the audiobooks will be further enhanced with high quality sound design in Dolby Atmos, alongside a stunning original score and real-world sound capture, all created to make your experience of the wizarding world feel even more authentic.

And as for casting? Audible and Pottermore Publishing will be working with casting directors and agents to find the best voices for all the characters.

Neil Blair, Chairman of Pottermore Publishing called the project a “sophisticated, immersive audio experience”.

“We are delighted to be collaborating with Audible on what will be a ground-breaking audio edition of the beloved Harry Potter stories,” he said.

“J.K. Rowling’s storytelling lends itself perfectly to the application of new audiobook technologies, and we’re certain this sophisticated, immersive audio experience will not only add a new listening dimension for existing fans but will introduce a whole new generation of listeners to the wizarding world.”

This new listening experience will be exclusive to Audible, which is also home to all the existing Harry Potter audiobooks and their spin-offs. This new upcoming project is part of Audible’s bountiful library of family-friendly selections, and will certainly make your enjoyment of the Harry Potter stories all the more magical.

All together now: Sonorus!
