Warner Bros. Games and Avalanche Software Reveal Voice Over Talent for Hogwarts Legacy

BURBANK, CA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Warner Bros. Games and Avalanche Software today revealed some of the well-known voice actors for Hogwarts legacy, the upcoming open-world action role-playing game set in the 19th-century wizarding world. Developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Games under the Portkey Games label, Hogwarts legacy allows players to experience life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry like never before as they live the unwritten and embark on a perilous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world.

In Hogwarts legacyactor Simon Pegg plays Phineas Nigellus Black, the quarrelsome Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Headmaster Black comes from a long line of Slytherins and is hated by the students, whom he also despises greatly. Completely unfit for his job, his goal is to do as little work as possible and avoid contact with the student body – preferring to focus on his status in the wizarding world and his surgically manicured beard.

As fifth-year students entering Hogwarts for the first time, Sebastian Kroft and amelie thing Play the two language options for the game’s playable avatar, which is highly customizable, allowing players to choose the witch or wizard they want to be.

Lesley Nicole voices a key character in the game, Professor Matilda Weasley. As Gryffindor, she is the Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts who helps the player catch up with the other students by giving them the Wizard’s field guide and showing them the Room of Requirement. Kandace Caine stars Professor Onai, who was once a Divination teacher at Uagadou, the world’s largest wizarding school, and a gifted seer whose faith in her sight was shaken when she failed to foresee the loss of her husband. She decides to put those painful memories behind her and accepts an invitation from Professor Weasley to teach Divination at Hogwarts. The professor of astronomy, Professor Satyavati Shah, is voiced by Son Kapila. Raised in the Muggle world, Professor Shah is devoted to science and tends to berate her students in tortuous and pretentious aphorisms.

And longtime franchise fans will be delighted Luke Youngbloodwho played Lee Jordan in the film series when he returns to provide the voice of Everett Clopton, a Ravenclaw and half-breed sub-par rule-breaker and prankster. Asif Ali says another Ravenclaw student, Mahendra Pehlwaan, a muggle-born and avid rule-keeper whose aggressive adherence to rules and guidelines even the professors have grown a little weary of!

JasonAnthony Both Nearly Headless Nick and The Sorting Hat agree. Almost headless Nick, the Gryffindor house ghost, also known as Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, is friendly and entertaining, if a bit pompous. He could be the key to helping the Gryffindor player find answers crucial to solving an important mystery – if they’re willing to do him a little favor that involves some rotten roast beef! Finally, the iconic Sorting Hat, a sentient, magical hat, uses knowledge from the student’s past along with player input to determine which Hogwarts house is the best fit.
