Upcoming Harry Potter Mobile Game Has Some Familiar Voice Actors

If you, like me, are still waiting for your letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, then you’re in luck (no Felix Felicis required). The upcoming Harry Potter mobile game: Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will finally give you the opportunity to enroll at the wizarding school of your dreams.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery allows uses to become students at Hogwarts in the years between Harry Potter’s birth in 1980 and his first year of school in 1991.  So, no, you won’t be running into Harry, Ron, and Hermione on the way to Potions — but don’t be surprised if you see some other familiar, red-headed Weasleys around campus.

Harry Potter Movie Cast Reunion

Dame Maggie Smith and other cast members from the Harry Potter movies have all lent their voice talents to the game. Smith, who played Professor McGonagall is joined by Warwick Davis, who played Professor Flitwick; and Michael Gambon, who played Dumbledore; Sally Mortemore, who was Madam Irma Pince; Gemma Jones, who was Madam Pomfrey; and Zoe Wanamaker, who was Madam Hooch.

As reported by THR, Smith, whose Professor McGonagall was the head of Gryffindor House and who taught transfiguration, said, “If I could attend Hogwarts as a student, I would be most excited to attend the potions class taught by Severus because it is the most exotic.” Jam City CEO Chris DeWolfe said of the game:

Our goal with Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is to make players really feel for the first time like they’re attending Hogwarts. By including these iconic and incredibly talented actors in the game, we come one step closer to truly giving fans their own Hogwarts experience.

Players of the Harry Potter mobile game will be able to choose their own house, create friendships, interact with their favourite professors, learn spells and master potions all while earning points and unlocking new, magical mysteries. Fans of the hit series will no doubt be eager to download the game once it’s available, but you can already pre-register on the game’s official site so you’re one of the first to know all the updates.

While fans of the wizarding world of Harry Potter will be able to revisit some of Rowling’s magical world when Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theatres in November, this game allows fans to revisit the magic of Hogwarts as an active participant instead of just watching the magic onscreen.

This won’t be the only Harry Potter mobile game

This isn’t going to be the only Harry Potter-themed game released this year, either. Niantic announced late last year they will be partnering with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WB Games to launch Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. This is said to be a game where players, “will learn spells, explore their real world neighborhoods and cities to discover & fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies,” in a style similar to that of Pokemon Go.
