The latest Lego version of a cinematic success, Lego Harry Potter, is appearing in the shops over the next few days, and to mark the occasion Warner Bros. have released a trailer detailing what can be expected from the game.

Coming out on Nintendo Wii, DS, PlayStation 2 & 3, PSP, Xbox 360 and PC, the game sees Harry and friends make their way through the various adventures detailed within the first four JK Rowling books. All of this occurs within a typical Lego style, with building blocks flying to and fro as heroes and villains encounter each other in-and-around Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Though now part of a Lego video game family that includes

Star Wars, Batman

, and

Indiana Jones

, the

Harry Potter

novels are certainly not the first to find themselves reborn in both cinematic and video game form.

Lord Of The Rings

Online has started trialling a free-to-play mode, and

The Chronicles of Narnia

stories have been given video-game tie-ins when they started hitting the

big screen from 2005 onwards.

The post-apocalyptic S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games were heavily influenced by Andrei Tarkovsky's

Stalker

, which in turn heavily drew upon Strugastskys'

Roadside Picnic

novel.
