Dame Maggie Smith, Warwick Davis and Michael Gambon star in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

A string of famous actors from the Harry Potter films are providing voiceover work for Jam City's upcoming mobile RPG Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.

The cast includes Dame Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall, Michael Gambon as Professor Dumbledore and Warwick Davis as Professor Flitwick.

Sally Mortemore will voice Madam Irma Pince, Gemma Jones will play Madam Pomfrey, while Zoe Wanamaker will voice Madam Hooch.

Imminent launch

Jam City has also revealed the Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery release date as April 25th on both iOS and Android.

"Our goal with Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is to make players really feel for the first time like they’re attending Hogwarts,” said Jam City CEO Chris DeWolfe.

“By including these iconic and incredibly talented actors in the game, we come one step closer to truly giving fans their own Hogwarts experience.”

Described as a narrative adventure, Hogwarts Mystery has players creating their own character and experiencing life as a student at Hogwarts. Players will work they way through the years attending classes, learning magical spells and making friends and rivalries with other students.

It’s one of two big Harry Potter mobile games set to release in 2018, with Niantic’s location-based augmented reality title Harry Potter: Wizards Unite set to launch later this year.
