For fans of the Harry Potter universe, this year promises to be great as we will see the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The film promises to be the next installment in the series and will feature more of Johnny Depp’s dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald and Jude Law’s young Albus Dumbledore. Besides the basic premise for the film we still don’t know much about the overall plot. But now thanks to a number of leaked LEGO sets we now may have confirmation of a return to an iconic Harry Potter location, Hogwarts.
This list is our first look at the supposed names for the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald LEGO sets and based on the list we will see a return to Hogwarts, the main setting for the Harry Potter films. Besides the second set, Newt Scamander’s Briefcase, the other sets are all callbacks to past films.
As fans of the series know, Aragog is the name of the giant spider that lives in the Forbidden Forest and was in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The next callback is the fourth set called Ford Anglia Escape which as some will remember is the same vehicle Harry and Ron Weasley drove in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. And finally the most exciting of the sets is the last one Hogwarts Great Hall. This is very interesting as it means we will see a return to the famous wizarding school either in a flashback or during the films actual timeline. This return isn’t too much of a surprise since we are confirmed to see Albus Dumbledore, who is currently a teacher at the school.
It is important to note that until we get official confirmation these sets are still just rumors. But based on the source of these set names I feel it is safe to believe these are real due to their track record with confirmed leaks.
It will be very interesting if we do get to see a return to the iconic wizarding school especially if we can see what it looked like in the past.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald lands its way into theaters November 16, 2018.
