The first Harry Potter game for iOS and Android now has a release date, and several big names from the original film series are adding their voices to the app.

Jam City and Portkey Games have announced that Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery’s release date is set for Wednesday, April 25. And there’s more: Maggie Smith (Professor McGonagall), Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore), and Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick) have all recorded dialogue for the game.

Actresses Sally Mortemore (Madam Irma Pince), Gemma Jones (Madam Pomfrey), Zoe Wanamaker (Madam Hooch) are also a part of the app.

“If I could attend Hogwarts as a student, I would be most excited to attend the potions class taught by Severus because it is the most exotic,” said Dame Maggie Smith in a press release.

“Our goal with Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is to make players really feel for the first time like they’re attending Hogwarts,” said Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City. “By including these iconic and incredibly talented actors in the game, we come one step closer to truly giving fans their own Hogwarts experience.”

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is set in the 1980’s, when Bill and Tonks were students, and it’ll let players attend all seven years at the school. They’ll be able to take classes, duel, make potions, and take on other wizardly activities.

Hogwarts Mystery is the first of several planned games for mobile and consoles under WB’s new Portkey Games banner. A Pokemon Go-like game is also in the works and is expected to debut later this year.
