Some exciting news tonight as a new report is online regarding the much beloved Harry Potter LEGO line. Readers will recall that earlier this year we learned indeed there will be a brand new LEGO Harry Potter video game due out next spring. Arthur Parson of TT Games, makers of the video game with LEGO recently made an industry appearance where he spoke about the upcoming game, with the report saying:

"Arthur also said in response to another question that Lego are actually turning some of the ideas that TT came up with into toys, and are actually re-launching the Harry Potter range to coincide with the game and what is in it."

As we saw in this adorable trailer (screencaps here in galleries) the new game is based on Harry Potter years 1-4, and this interview also says that TT Games "really wanted to make Lego more core to the experience this time around, so being able to build just about anything you want out of Lego bricks has been transferred into the game, especially Harry Potter which is heavily physics based due to the magic involved."

Pre-orders for the new game are available here in our Cauldron Shop, with a reported release date of March 31, 2010.  We are working to confirm the re-release of the wildly popular Harry Potter LEGOs and will update on this when we can, stay tuned!

Lego Star Wars was pure gold. Lego Harry Potter must be good as well.

Oh, that would be so cool.. I like the lego games.. (We have the Star Wars game at home, but I don’t get parts of it, probably ‘cause I have only watched parts of the movies :P).
It would be so cool if they ha da Lego Luna. Oh, wait, it’s years 1-4. Oh, well..
Baby Harry looks really really funny :P

Omg i don’t think i could be more excited. I was an obsessive collector of the first LEGO releases and i even had the first game. I’ll definately be continuing this tradition.

I’ve been looking forward to this game since the moment LEGO Batman was released.

HOWEVER, the March release date’s probably not very accurate, as it’s a wednesday and most games are released on Tuesdays. That’s just the date that a lot of websites have been using as placeholders (Gamestop still has it at 1/1/10).

I still think we’re not going to see it until the holiday season of 2010 to coincide with the release of Deathly Hallows Pt 1.
