Rumor Alert: More on Possible Lego Harry Potter Video Game

Rumor Alert: ComputerandVideogames.com is reporting today that they believe Lego is developing the Harry Potter novels for a video game. With very little information or sources given, the site is saying that Warner will do the publishing of the Lego game, "even though EA has the rights to do the PC and console movie tie-ins. Warner published Lego Batman too, it's worth noting." Additional Quotage:

"First it was Star Wars (the good ones AND the bad ones), then came Indiana Jones followed most recently by Batman. But the next big property to be reborn in little plastic blocks will be Harry Potter, CVG has learn[sic]...We've got no solid details on what form the game will take but an action-adventure type of romp taking its lead from the books (or movies) would be the safe bet. Expect lots of Hogwarts, and big fat Hagrid and a little boy with Lego hair then.

If we had to pin the tail on a release date... Well, there is a new movie out next year (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince if you need reminding). We've contacted Warner in the UK for comment. More soon."

Please note: The rumor of a possible Lego Harry Potter game has been floating on the net for years and had surfaced again several months ago. Please keep this very much in the rumor category for now. We are working to find out more about this and will update when we can.

Thanks Gavin

Does anyone know why there was only one LEGO set for ootp?? Lack of interest? Could it possibly be because ootp was a summer film instead of fall so they would not get any christmas sales? Either way.. they should make more! (Please?!)

I’ve got all the Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Batman for the 360. They are all unique and fun to play. I’d say Harry Potter would be a great fit. It is an interesting point that was mentioned, how each episode would be different since 3/4 of the HP universe takes place in and around Hogwarts. I’d imagine a LOT of creative license would have to take place to make each level fun and exciting. But I can totally see Harry flying around on his broom in a Quidditch stadium level, ala the Snowspeeders or X-Wing boards in Lego Star Wars…etc. I hope Traveller’s Tales does the game if it comes out, they have made the Lego games fantastic thus far. I always thought it would be cool to have a Lego He-Man video game. Think of all the unique characters and vehicles that would be in THAT game?!
