Harry Potter LEGO Sets

It’s been years since any Harry Potter themed LEGO sets were manufactured. There were a variety of sets available when the original film franchise was at the height of its popularity, but ever since the original franchise came to an end in 2011, the creation of any new sets has been stagnant. But that’s about to change.

A new line of Harry Potter LEGO sets will be released starting in the second half of 2018 with the Hogwarts Great Hall playset. The new sets will bring to life scenes and characters from both the original Harry Potter franchise and the more recent Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise. Get a first look at the first of the new Harry Potter LEGO sets below. Read More »

fantastic beasts movies settings

The wizarding world of Harry Potter is about to get a whole lot bigger. While the original children’s fantasy franchise remained firmly in the close-knit magical community in Britain, its spin-off series, Fantastic Beastshas made a concerted effort to move beyond the comfy confines of Hogwarts.

First, the series went West, with the franchise setting foot on American soil for the first time in the New York City-set Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Its sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, will go a tad more international, primarily taking place in Paris. But this isn’t the only globe-trotting that our intrepid magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) will be doing — the next three Fantastic Beasts movies will all take place in a different city.

Harry Potter mobile game

While fans can walk around inside a physical recreation of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios theme parks, there’s nothing that simulates the experience of being a student at the school from the Harry Potter books and movies. But a new role playing game called Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery aims to change that by allowing players to create their own characters and “choose their own path as a student at the school.”

This is different from the augmented reality game that was announced recently, so it looks J.K. Rowling’s magical world is about to break into the gaming space in a big way next year. Read more about the newest Harry Potter mobile game below.
