Dame Maggie Smith is set to return as Professor McGonagall once more!


Ever miss Dame Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall? Well, you’re in luck because she’s lending her voice to the role once more!

Dame Maggie Smith is one of the most beloved of the Harry Potter actors. Her take on Professor McGonagall has stuck with us and provided us with a love for the character that may have not existed otherwise. And now, it seems, that we’re getting her as Minvera once more!

Or, sort of. Jam City, a Los Angeles based gaming company is creating Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery and has gotten a lot of the original cast to come and voice their characters! Not only is Maggie Smith prepared to take on McGonagall once more, but many of our favorite professors are heading back to Hogwarts.

Other than Maggie, one of the most surprising is the return of Sir Michael Gambon as Albus Dumbledore. With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, it would seem relevant for them to get Jude Law (who will play Dumbledore in Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them: the Curse of Grindelwald) to voice the part.

Instead, fans get to relive the magic of their favorite characters. Warwick Davis is also slated to return to voice Professor Flitwick as is Sally Mortemore as Madam Irma Prince, Gemma Jones as Madam Pomfrey, and Zoe Wanamaker as Madam Hooch.

You get to play as a character attending Hogwarts, solving a mystery with your favorite professors and being the hero of the Harry Potter series that you always wanted to be.

Next: Maybe don’t say Hogwarts was the most well protected school

What’s so amazing about this game is that it just lets us, as fans, relive the magic once more. You can download the game on your iOS device this April 25. This is one magical adventure that you won’t want to miss out on and we can’t wait to play!
