Simon Pegg stars in the upcoming Harry Potter game Hogwarts Legacy
WARNER Bros. has announced the cast of the upcoming game Hogwarts Legacy, based on the world of Harry Potter.
Starring the cast is Simon Pegg, best known for Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
He will play the headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black, who fans will remember from the books and films as one of the portraits in Dumbledore’s office.
The game is set 200 years before the books and Phineas is long gone when the Harry Potter story begins.
He is also Sirius Black’s great-great-grandfather, although he is the polar opposite of his descendant.
Phineas is a proud pompous-looking Slytherin who only took the position of Headmaster for prestige.
Luke Youngblood, who played Fred and George Weasley’s best friend Lee Jordan in the films, will voice a Ravenclaw student with a cheeky attitude.
Nearly Headless Nick will be included as a character known as the house ghost for Gryffindor.
One of the surprising announcements is that the Deputy Headmistress will be named Matilda Weasley and is believed to be an ancestor of Ron’s.
Matilda doesn’t appear in the books, but the Weasley name is a very unique name that doesn’t appear outside of Ron’s family.
The full list of professors has not yet been announced, but we do know that there will be Divination and Astronomy teachers at the school.
The cast list is very limited right now, with Warner Bros. keeping things secret even a month before the game’s release.
Here’s the full list of characters and voice actors we know of so far.
- Simon Pegg – Phineas Nigellus Black (Principal)
- Sebastian Kroft or Amelia Gethin – protagonist
- Lesley Nicole – Professor Matilda Weasley (Deputy Director)
- Kandace Caine – Professor Onai (Divination)
- Son Kapila – Professor Satyavati Shah (Astronomy)
- Luke Youngblood – Everett Clopton (student)
- Asif Ali – Mahendra Pehlwaan (student)
- JasonAnthony – The Almost Headless Nick and the Sorting Hat
