Seven years after the last Harry Potter sets were released, LEGO has unveiled a number of exciting new Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts themed builds. The centrepiece of the new products is an epic 6000+ piece (!) Hogwarts Castle and grounds.

The new sets feature iconic scenes from the 8 ‘Potter’ films, as well as two Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sets (including an exciting new Crimes of Grindelwald build)A number of new minifigures are also included with the new releases.

The new sets include Aragog’s Lair, the Whomping Willow and castle, The Great Hall, the Hogwarts Express and a Quidditch Match. The Fantastic Beasts sets include Newt’s Case (complete with a number of magical creatures) and Grindelwald’s Escape (in what looks to be a Thestral-and-cart), a new scene we’ll learn more about in the Crimes of Grindelwald film.

The epic highlight of the new sets is a 6020-piece Hogwarts Castle, LEGO’s second largest set (behind the Star Wars Millenium Falcon). The castle showcases a number of iconic scenes from the ‘Potter’ films, and includes 4 minifgures (the four Hogwarts founders) and 27 character microfigures.

You can purchase the new sets on the official LEGO website, or learn more about the history of Harry Potter LEGO in our dedicated LEGO section.

Scholastic, the US publisher of the Harry Potter books, will republish all seven novels with new cover artwork by Brian Selznick. The new editions will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the US and will be released in June.

Selznick’s seven black and white drawings combine to form a single image, “telling Harry’s story from his arrival at Privet Drive to the Battle of Hogwarts”.

Brian Selznick’s seven covers combine to form a single image

Says the artist, “I’m a huge Harry Potter fan (a proud Hufflepuff!) and to be asked to illustrate the 20th anniversary edition covers was an absolute honour … one of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of the process was drawing seven independent covers that would stand on their own, while making sure that they also lined up to create one single satisfying image. It took dozens and dozens of sketches to get it right, and I am thrilled to share my great love for the books with these new illustrations”.
