Well-known voice talent has been announced for Hogwarts Legacy. Developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Games, Hogwarts Legacy allows players to experience life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You will live the unwritten history and embark on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world.
In Hogwarts Legacy, actor Simon Pegg plays Phineas Nigellus Black, the cantankerous Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. From a long lineage of Slytherins, Headmaster Black is hated by the students. Wildly ill-suited to his job, his goal is to do the least amount of work possible and avoid exposure to the student body. He prefers to focus on his status in the wizarding world and his surgically manicured beard.
Hogwarts Legacy – Let’s welcome this new student body
As fifth-year students entering Hogwarts for the first time, Sebastian Croft and Amelia Gething play the two voice options for the game’s playable avatar. Which can be highly customized, enabling players to choose the witch or wizard they want to be.
Lesley Nicol voices a key character in the game, Professor Matilda Weasley. She is a Gryffindor, as well as the Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts. She aids the player in catching up with the other students by giving them the Wizard’s Field Guide. Not only that she reveals to them the Room of Requirement. There is also Kandace Caine who will play Professor Onai who was once a Divination teacher at Uagadou, the largest wizarding school in the world. She is also a gifted Seer. Her faith in her sight was shaken by the fact that she did not foresee a certain tragedy.
Deciding to leave those painful memories behind, she accepts an invitation by Professor Weasley to teach Divination at Hogwarts. The professor of Astronomy, Professor Satyavati Shah, is voiced by Sohm Kapila. Raised in the Muggle world, Professor Shah is devoted to the sciences and tends to talk down to her students in winding and pretentious aphorisms.
And longtime franchise fans will be thrilled to recognize Luke Youngblood. He is played by Lee Jordan from the film series as he returns to provide the voice of Everett Clopton. He is a Ravenclaw and a half-blood underachieving rule-breaker and prankster. Asif Ali voices another Ravenclaw student, Mahendra Pehlwaan, a muggle-born and an avid rule-keeper, whose aggressive adherence to rules and guidelines even the professors have grown a bit weary of.
Two returning heroes of the franchise
Jason Anthony voices both Nearly Headless Nick and the Sorting Hat. Nearly Headless Nick, the Gryffindor house ghost, is friendly and entertaining if a bit pompous. He may be the key to helping the Gryffindor player find answers crucial to solving a significant mystery. If they are willing to do him one small favour involving a bit of rotten roast beef. Then finally, there is the iconic Sorting Hat. We all know it as the sentient, magical hat, that uses knowledge from the student’s past. Players will also get to determine which Hogwarts house will be the right fit.
