You all knew it was going to happen eventually, right?  Yep, Lego Harry Potter isn’t that far off, folks.  It was announced officially today.  Included with that announcement is a snazzy trailer that showcases some of the “Year 1” part of the title. Hidden in the vignette there is a “magic word” that can be used to unlock the extra super special VIP section of the Lego Harry Potter web site.

Here’s a description of the game in more detail from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment:

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will give gamers the chance to experience the magic and adventure of Harry Potter in a uniquely LEGO way. Playing as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley™ and Hermione Granger™, as well as more than 100 other favorite characters, gamers will have the opportunity to attend lessons, cast spells, mix potions, fly on broomsticks and complete tasks to earn rewards.  Throughout the game, players will also have the freedom to explore iconic settings from the wizarding world including Hogwarts™ castle, Diagon Alley, the Forbidden Forest and the village of Hogsmeade.

So, we have Lego games based on the Star Wars saga, the Indiana Jones movies and now Harry Potter. What’s next? Lego Twilight?
