Pottermore has announced that Eddie Redmayne is set to record the audio for the updated Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them book.
The digital audio book is available for pre-order from Audible UK, Audible US and Audible Australia now and will be released on 14 March 2017.
Redmayne, who plays Hufflepuff Magizoologist Newt Scamander in the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, popped by Audible HQ to narrate the audio book. But, with so much happening in the Wizarding World since its original publication, J.K. Rowling couldn’t resist updating some of the text.
Like the updated print and eBook editions, the audio book contains a new foreword from Newt Scamander himself, hinting at some of what happened when he visited New York City in the year 1926 and since. It also details six new beasts, along with all of Newt’s already well-known discoveries. It comes with wonderfully mastered sound effects, too.
