I just posted the second report from my set visit last September. This is also just a teaser, since I am still forbidden to do a full and detailed report until the film is released. I hope this gives you a little more idea of the creativity and fun that goes into the making of the Harry Potter films.

I’ve also added some “on the set” details to the page about the Head’s Office. I’m hoping to add this kind of detail to more pages soon. In the meantime, let me just say that I am SO excited for the release of Order of the Phoenix. From everything I’ve heard and from the people I’ve talked to who have seen a rough cut of the film, it’s clear that this one will be truly incredible, maybe the best one yet.

    thanks, Steve!

    can’t wait to read the Black tapestry report 🙂

    Steve, thank you very much. I appreciate your work with all of my heart, dude. And another thanks is due for the reworking of the pensieve. I can final read the comments without a magnifying lens. Haha, you’re the best!

    I see new book titles.

    Does this mean you’ll be updating the book page?

  • Kerri

    Steve, I cant say enough how much we appreciate the work the Lexicon team puts into maintaining our Harry Potter world. Thanks for an update on the sets! Im curious though, what was the one thing that made you jump up and down in excitment more than anything else?

  • Bandersnatch

    Terrific little teaser, Steve. I can’t wait to read your full report when the movie opens.

    You are so lucky to have seen all this! I am so desperately impatient forthe full set report, and even moe impatient for teh movie, which comes out July 11!!!!!!

  • Cricket

    We will not be able to see the movie until around the first of August, and maybe not even until its release on DVD. Lotsa family stuff going on, but
    there is always the Lexicon! Thank you for letting me come and play from time to time.

    I heard that the movie was coming out 2 days earlier. It says that it’s coming out on July 11th now.

    Steve, if you do manage to get a job at “the magic factory” can you put in a good word for me too? I’d ditch my job at the Law School in a minute to help bring the HP books to life. The detail on Umbridge’s clipboard form is astounding! I’m secretly hoping that some of these items find their way on to e-bay….
    Thanks for the awesome report/teaser! It’s so great to get a first-hand report from someone as passionate (or possibly more so) about Harry Potter as I am.

    Just read the second report. My sister’s friend decorates sets (here in the States), and I definately agree with you; it would be fun to think up all this way kewl stuff…give weight and substance to the story.

    Nicely done.

    When will the promised full report come? I have at least not seen anything of it. Besides, as I understood it, they had a more complete familytree with two extra generations on, where are that information? I have been waiting for quite a while now.

  • Caitlin

    where IS the full set report?????

  • Heidi

    I haven’t been able to find the full set report, either. Was it ever completed?
