Granted, Lockhart might not be your first choice of companion on the dangerous mission of saving the Philosopher’s Stone from Voldemort and Snape/Quirrell, but that’s no reason not to enjoy Kenneth Branagh reading Chapter 16, “Through the Trapdoor”, along with Ruth Wilson and a closeted (?!?) Death Eater cameo.

Yesterday we posted a link to Chapter 15, read by Nagini (Claudia Kim) and Dakota Fanning. You can find all of the chapters released so far at Wizarding World Digital’s Chapter Hub. The video/audio narration of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is part of their Harry Potter at Home project, which is bringing us new content daily during the pandemic. Chapter 16’s Chapter Challenge and Quiz will test your recall of details from the chapter, and invite you to ponder such thought-provoking questions as how you would feel if you were Neville? He stood up to his friends, and they cursed him, but he later finds out what they were really up to, and how critical it was to saving the magical (and Muggle) worlds from Voldemort.

Only one more chapter left. Who do you think will be reading it?
