Back in early April, LEGO opened up a new section on LEGO.com, dedicated to prospective tie-in merchandise to Warner Bros. and JK Rowling’s Wizarding World multimedia franchise, covering Harry Potter and the Fantastic Beasts prequels. Over a month later, there’s still no content on the page, but that might change.
Interestingly, the spoiler of a new Harry Potter set was made on a banner for one of LEGO’s original product lines, Elves. A banner on the Elves section has a blurb describing the action on one of the upcoming 2018 sets, but the accompanying image…is a familiar flying Ford Anglia.
Said vehicle, prominent in the second Potter book/film The Chamber of Secrets, has already appeared in past LEGO sets such as Escape from Privet Drive (4728) and Hogwarts Express (4841). This Anglia, with Harry and Ron minifigures naturally, might figure in any one of two new sets coming this year: Aragog in the Forbidden Forest (75950) and Whomping Willow (75953).
Now, whether or not these new updates on 2018 Wizarding World LEGO sets will be put on their dedicated theme page any time soon, we’ll just have to wait and see. Goodness knows; there’s so many of them announced already.
