Earlier this year, Promobricks reported that the Wizarding World theme would return in January 2021 with four textbooks. Each set will apparently be themed around a different Hogwarts house, with a classroom playset concealed inside.
Brickset has now updated its database with preliminary names of those four sets, adding further weight to Promobricks’ rumours. Here’s what we can expect to see in 2021:
What’s less clear at the moment is whether these books will be buildable, or if they’ll be more akin to this year’s LEGO Disney sets. Given their rumoured price point of €29.99, though, we’d gamble on the latter.
If you need a refresher of what these rumoured sets may contain, here’s the descriptions from Promobricks (translated via Google).
76382 Textbook with Transformation Classroom
Metamorphosis is known to be taught by Professor Minerva McGonagall. In addition to the Gryffindor Head of House with a black hat and green cape, the set also includes Ron and Hermione with short legs and grey sweaters. The book is brown-orange.
When opened, the book contains a school desk, a cupboard, a chest, a book, the teacher’s desk, a toad, a rat, a blackboard, and windows and paintings depicted with stickers.
76383 Textbook with Potions Classroom
The green book of the House of Slytherin contains Professor Severus Snape in a black robe with a purple shirt, Draco Malfoy and Seamus Finnigan, both with short legs.
The Potions classroom consists of a table with kettles, an armchair, a blackboard, several shelves, a textbook and stickers to represent vaults and walls.
76384 Textbook with Herbology Classroom
The Hufflepuff House is under Professor Pomona Sprout. In this yellow book, the Head of House with dual-moulded legs is included, as is Neville with short legs and one other student who could be Cedric Diggory. Both are equipped with earmuffs placed around their necks and appropriate work clothes.
The classroom is a mock greenhouse with eight windows and a glass door. It contains two beds, a tap, a table, a cupboard and a book. Masonry and plants are also represented here by stickers.
The blue Ravenclaw book contains the magic classroom. The matching Head of House Professor Filius Flitwick appears here for the first time with his appearance, as it was seen in the first two Harry Potter films. Instead of a brown mustache and brown hair, this figure has a white beard and a bald head. The two included students are Harry Potter and Cho Chang, each with short legs.
In addition to the teacher’s desk, the open classroom also contains two school desks with overlying springs, a chest, a display cabinet, a blackboard and shelves. Windows and wall panelling are shown here by stickers.
