If the LEGO Star Wars Solo set announcement earlier this week wasn’t enough for you, LEGO Systems, Inc., in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products have announced a collection of sets inspired by the Wizarding World. The sets which will be available in the second half of 2018, will let fans recreate storylines from both Harry Potter™ and Fantastic Beasts in LEGO form and feature a cast of fan-favorite wizards, Muggles and magical creatures in LEGO form – from Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger to Newt Scamander and more.
Fans of all ages will also be able to collect their favorite Wizarding World characters in new LEGO BrickHeadz building sets.
So let’s take a look at the first set announced in the series – Hogwarts™ Great Hall
