Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Has 'Spellbinding Characters'

"It's not often that you get to play as a dog in games...especially a LEGO dog," says one of TT Games' dev team in this latest behind the scenes trailer for LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4. We can't argue with that. We honestly can't remember playing as a LEGO dog before. A dog, yes. A LEGO dog? No.

Focusing on LEGO Harry Potter's characters...sorry...'spellbinding characters', the video shows the difference between each character's abilities, from Harry's Nimbus 2000 prowess to Ron's rubbish, floaty control over the broomstick and Hermione's complete lack of flying skill. 

There's also a quick rundown of all the best HP characters, from Hagrid to Voldemort and Dumbledore (who needs unlocking) to charming LEGO dog, Fang, who can climb ladders. A ladder climbing dog? Count that as another first.

Check out the trailer right here. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will be out at the end of the month, and there's a demo available now on Xbox Live

I love the lego games. Sure they are all pretty much the same but they are damn fun and easy (although deceptively time-consuming!) achievements.

Loved the demo. It seems the game is going back to it's roots a bit after the last few games (mainly the return of gold bricks). I'ver hopeing for this game since finishing LEGO Star Wars II. Can't wait.

At around the 1:14 mark, is it just me or are the 360 controllers blurred out?

@7 yeah the controllers are blured out, hope this is more like Indy 1 and not like 2 they sort of ruined it by making a HUB with too much to do with

Already pre-ordered. Love the Lego games in general as a great family social gaming experience, I'm sure this will be no different!

Let's see I'm a giant fan on Harry Potter. Lego games are awesome. Pretty sure I preordered this game, I got the friggen' collectors edition too, which really was a waste of money, but I get a Harry Potter avatar item!

I'll probably get it when its $20. Anything more then that is not worth it.
