Since the launch of the LEGO Harry Potter Wizarding World theme last year, the theme has proven to be one of the most popular LEGO licensed sets among Harry Potter and LEGO fans. It has become so popular that it is quite impossible to think that LEGO will be pulling the curtain to this theme anytime soon. With several awards and nominations under its belt, it is quite unreal to think that we will see the end of this theme very soon. As rumor has it, we definitely haven’t seen the last of the LEGO Harry Potter Wizarding World theme. In fact, Brick Fanatics managed to get some inside info that there will more 2019 LEGO Harry Potter sets slated to be released this summer, with five sets leading this particular release. According to their source, we can expect the following sets sometime in summer:
- Expecto Patronum
- Tri-Wizard Challenge
- Hagrid’s Hut (this is the fourth version of the set – 4707, 4738, and 4754 – if ever this rumor is verified)
- Knight Bus (a rehashed version of 2011’s LEGO Harry Potter Knight Bus 4866)
- Hogwarts Watch Tower
Except for Hagrid’s Hut and the Knight Bus, the rest are new to the theme. Expecto Patronum refers to the spell that Harry casts to summon an ethereal being to drive away Dementors. The Tri-Wizard Challenge sound promising, considering that the challenge itself consists of actually three different tasks: retrieving a golden egg from a not-so-friendly dragon, getting back someone who you’ll badly miss from the aquatic Merpeople, and getting the Triwizard Cup at the middle of an unforgiving maze. If this rumored set turned out to be true, then it’s cool to see all of these challenges merged into one LEGO set.
The Hogwarts Watch Tower is a bit of a mystery to me since I’m not sure what particular watchtower it is referring to. I need to polish out my Potterlore if I’m missing what this one is.
These rumored summer 2019 LEGO Harry Potter sets are expected to be released by July 1. And in case you’re planning to add the current LEGO Harry Potter sets to your collection, then you may want to check out shop.LEGO.com.
