Rowling’s Wizarding World announced on Twitter that all 17 chapters of “The Sorcerer’s Stone” will be read in a series of video and audio recordings — for free. It’s all part of the Harry Potter at Home series.

Dakota Fanning, Stephen Fry, Claudia Kim, Noma Dumezweni and Eddi Redmayne are all expected to share in reading some of the chapters.

Radcliffe, who starred as Harry in the film adaptations, kicked off the series — reading the first chapter “The Boy Who Lived.” The first chapter can be found on harrypotterathome.com.

Other videos are posted weekly on the website, with audio recordings available for free on Spotify.
