Gather friends, for we have wonderful news! To celebrate 50 years of Terry Pratchett, we’re releasing 40 magnificent new recordings of the bestselling series in audio.
Even better, this is Discworld like you’ve never heard it before, with an incredible cast of names from British stage and screen taking on Terry’s unforgettable characters.
Confirmed names include:
‘I’m honoured to voice the footnotes and bring to life one of the funniest, quirkiest and best-loved aspects of Terry Pratchett’s world.’ – Bill Nighy.
BAFTA-award-winning composer James Hannigan – whose credits include video games for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and the Lord of the Rings, and the audio production of Sandman – has composed theme tunes for the series.
This ambitious project, taking 40 unabridged books, containing nearly 4 million words, recording over 135 days and featuring over 420 hours of audio is being produced and directed by Neil Gardner – the multiple award-winning radio writer & director – who is a life-long Terry Pratchett superfan.
Rob Wilkins, who manages the Terry Pratchett Estate, has said:
‘We couldn’t be more delighted to have such a fitting tribute to Terry on the 50th anniversary of the publication of his first book and I can’t wait for listeners to experience this new Discworld in audio.’
The new audio editions will be publishing from April 2022 and are available to pre-order now.
