Warner Bros and LEGO news from Licensing Expo 2016

The partnership between LEGO and Warner Bros has been strong lately, considering the shared license properties like Harry Potter, The Big Bang Theory, LEGO DC Super Heroes and the LEGO Movie. With 3 new major LEGO movies coming out over the next couple of years, and new Harry Potter related movies like Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, the bond should continue to strengthen and grow. It should be noted that no more Harry Potter or Fantastic Beasts sets have been announced, but we can continue to dream.
