The Leaky Cauldron is reporting that a LEGO Harry Potter video game is confirmed to be in the works, and Warner Brothers has released a press release on the subject.

LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will give gamers the chance to experience the magic and adventure of Harry Potter in a uniquely LEGO way. Playing as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley™ and Hermione Granger™, as well as other favorite characters, gamers will have the opportunity to attend lessons, cast spells, mix potions, fly on broomsticks and complete tasks to earn house points. Throughout the game, players will also have the freedom to explore iconic settings from the wizarding world including Hogwarts castle, Diagon Alley™, the Forbidden Forest and the village of Hogsmeade™!

The game will be made by a partnership of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Traveller’s Tales, who partnered with LucasArts to develop the hit LEGO Star Wars games.

If the game ends up anything like the LEGO Star Wars series, with the same unique brand of humor and fun gameplay, it’s sure to be a hit.

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is currently set for a 2010 release. You can view a trailer for the game here.
