With the release of LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 on the horizon, here are some early story details, which we can expect to see in the newest installment!
The new game is based on the three books (and four films) that resolve the Potter franchise, leading to the dramatic final battle with Voldemort. While not a direct movie tie-in, the game goes hand-in-hand with the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
The game will also feature new characters and locations, including Grimmauld Place, the Ministry of Magic, Godric’s Hollow and Malfoy Manor.

Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Neville Longbottom, Professor Lupin and Sirius Black have all been updated to match their appearances from more recent sets.
Years 5-7 follows the Harry Potter story as it all starts to get more sinister, and people find themselves strolling headfirst into death and destruction more often than they’d like.
