    There are rumors from an "inside source" that a new entry in the popular LEGO series is in the works- Lego Harry Potter. This is just a rumor, though.

    Regardless, I find it an EXCELLENT and obvious choice for the series, but the idea might be getting a little stale. [​IMG] At any rate, the Harry Potter series is perfect:

    - large selection of stories/movies
    - I can see a LOT of potential for humor
    - plenty of "driving" sequences (flying cars and broomsticks)
    - TONS of characters
    - great opportunities for fun puzzles
    - lots of locations and the castle to explore
    - magic + legos = win (like the force on steroids)
    - perfect choice for hiding secrets

    The main problem is the story presentation. Those who know the books will know that they are HEAVILY reliant on non-action wordy story elements, as opposed to action heavy stories: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Batman. They may have their work cut out for them when putting the details in. That is, unless they decide to to the unprecedented in a LEGO game: voice acting.

    This would be a great game. Although people think harry potter and legos are for kids I could see this turning out AMAZING. I really hope they do not screw it up. I shall stay tuned.

    When LucasArts announced Lego Indiana Jones, I told myself that they're going to create a Lego Harry Potter.

    Might as well and after this Lego Spongebob Squarepants.
