The Harry Potter at Home website keeps getting better and better: The online hub for all things wizarding is now posting videos of actors and other famous personalities reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. A new chapter will be added every week—that means 17 weeks of Harry Potter read by Stephen Fry, David Beckham, Dakota Fanning and others.

Naturally, the series launches with "Chapter One: The Boy Who Lived." The exciting news for muggles like us? Daniel Radcliffe is reading! Fifty points for Gryffindor. 

Here are the chapters and readers so far:

The chapters will also be available in an audio-only format on Spotify Kids, the free streaming platform for young listeners that launched earlier this year. Parents take note: Each reading lasts longer than 20 minutes, adding up to hours of magical entertainment.

This is just the latest online Harry Potter experience to surface in recent weeks, joining a virtual tour of the incredible "Harry Potter: A History of Magic" exhibit at the British Library, a Harry Potter-themed escape room and a tour of real-life Harry Potter locations

So pull up your comfiest chairs, pop open a butterbeer or two and settle in for week after week of Harry Potter fun.
