With the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them in cinemas this weekend, the wizarding world as conjured by J.K. Rowling is very much alive again – and thanks to LEGO, fans can now relive the magical experience with LEGO Dimension’s Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Story Pack (71253). Check out’s Jason review of this set right here.
However, if playing through the entire movie via your gaming console seems not enough for your usual Muggle fix, then you may want to check out this offering from Warner Bros International. Somewhat like a smaller cousin of the remastered LEGO Harry Potter video game collection, WB has also launched a corresponding mobile version of the game made available for Android users. Similarly named as LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 and Years 5-7, avid LEGO fans of the film franchise may now bring the game with them wherever they go.
