While we understand that staying at home is the need of the hour, it certainly hasn't been easy. To ease our lockdown blues, Wizarding World got several actors, including Daniel Radcliffe, to read the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Surprise! We've got a treat for you…From today, amazing friends of the Wizarding World are going to take turns reading Harry Potter book one.— Wizarding World (@wizardingworld) May 5, 2020
And to start us off with Chapter 1, we think you’ll agree we have the perfect narrator...⚡️ #HarryPotterAtHome
Which is how loyal fans of Hogwarts got a chance to see 'The Boy who played Harry Potter' read the chapter, 'The Boy Who Lived'.
Naturally, Twitterati now wants a special train to take them back to their childhood:
