Zombies and wizards sound like a pretty cool combo. Powerful magic and the undead could wreak some serious havoc, but thankfully these worlds colliding is actually pretty great.

Best known for his character Rick Grimes on AMC’s The Walking Dead, Andrew Lincoln is done chasing zombies and is now chasing… a golden snitch? His latest project is to narrate the quirky audiobook version of J.K. Rowling’s Quidditch Through the Ages. It’s a book often mentioned as being part of the Hogwarts library as well as a documentation of the sport’s development from early medieval times to the modern day. So of course we’ll say it’s nonfiction. Although used to gore and apocalyptic settings, Lincoln seems to fit in rather well with the Potterheads, according to The Telegraph. He says:
The wizarding world of Harry Potter is one that I always wanted to get the chance to step into. What makes this project so special, is not only that it allowed me the opportunity to create something my kids love and enjoy, but it also supports great causes, like Comic Relief.
It was released in 2001 for the charity Comic relief to help those in need, but this new version has all new content that we haven’t seen (or heard) before, meaning it’s going to feel and sound like you’re at a heated Quidditch game or in the middle of a practice.

Since it was written under the pseudonym ‘Kennilworthy Whisp’ Lincoln must put himself in the student’s shoes. “His narration brings out both the charming humour in J.K. Rowling’s writing, and the vibrant characters that have inhabited the world of Quidditch throughout time,” says Ravina Bajwa, Pottermore’s audio editor.
It’s planned to be released in March this year; our ears will be waiting.
