“The wizarding world is one that I always wanted to get the chance to step into,” said actor Andrew Lincoln. The English actor will be narrating a guide called “Quidditch Through the Ages” from J.K. Rowling.
The guide will help describe the fictional game of quidditch from the books and films. Essentially, the game is a team sport that revolves around Harry Potter and company flying around on broomsticks.
As of now, pre-orders are currently available and the new project will officially come out on March 15, 2018.

This new project “allowed me opportunities to create something my kids love and enjoy,” added actor Andrew Lincoln. This is more and more common with actors who have children, where they can do voice work on animated movies or narrate.
According to the description, “Quidditch Through the Ages” is the “most checked out book in the Hogwarts Library.” Essentially, the project is a collectible for the Harry Potter super fan.
For fans that thought the world of Harry Potter was over, it’s clearly just begun. In fact, another film is coming out later this year.
After Eddie Redmayne achieved praise for The Danish Girl, he landed a role in the blockbuster Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This was the first screenplay written by Rowling and a major contender at the box office.
In fact, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is scheduled to come out in 2018. The new film is also written by Rowling and directed David Yates (Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts). Johnny Depp will also take over as Gillet Grindelwald.
Potter fans will also be excited to hear that this film has been listed as post-production, and there are already three additional sequels listed as announced. That’s five Fantastic Beasts films in total between now and 2024.
Unless something truly shocking happens, we assume that Eddie Redmayne will be in all five of these films. Zoe Kravitz, Jude Law, Katherine Waterson, and Ezra Miller will also be in the sequel this year.
So, are you looking forward to all of these new films in the Harry Potter world?
