“The Wizarding world is one that I always wanted to get the chance to step into,” Lincoln said in a statement. “What makes this project so special is not only that it allowed me opportunities to create something my kids love and enjoy, but it also supports great causes, like Comic Relief and Lumos.”
Originally published in 2001, Quidditch Through the Ages was written by Rowling and sold alongside Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (a first-year Hogwarts textbook) to benefit the U.K. charity Comic Relief. And although these books have been in circulation ever since, they haven’t had audiobooks until now; the audiobook for Fantastic Beasts, narrated by Eddie Redmayne (who plays Newt Scamander in the Fantastic Beasts films), was released last year.
A portion of proceeds from the Quidditch Through the Ages audiobook will still benefit Comedy Relief, as well as Lumos, Rowling’s own charity.
On top of Lincoln’s involvement, the Quidditch Through the Ages audiobook will also include commentary from a Quidditch match courtesy of Ginny Potter (Imogen Church) and Rita Skeeter (Annette Badland). It’s unclear if the Quidditch match commentary will be new material or use Rowling’s 2014 story from the Quidditch World Cup, which included commentary from both actors, the latter who was more interested in gossip and the happenings of the Dumbledore’s Army alum in their 30s.
The audiobook of Quidditch Through the Ages will be available on March 15.
