The new issue of Newsweek Magazine contains an interview with Harry Potter film producer David Heyman, where he discusses both the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix film as well as the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows novel.
Of the movie he briefly mentions the trio, as well as remarking again the call he made to author J.K. Rowling for information on the Black family tapestry which will be seen in the “Order of the Phoenix” movie, saying he e-mailed Jo and “About 15 minutes later we received a family tree that goes back six generations with names, birthdates, family crests, a motto. It was all in her head.”

Noting he can not wait to read “Deathly Hallows,” Mr. Heyman goes on to reflect on what the arrival of the final installment in the Harry Potter book series will mean for Harry Potter fans around the world.

“It’s a combination of sadness and excitement, I think—for Jo, and for all of us,” he says. “This world has become a huge part of millions and millions of people’s lives. We all love it so much, and I think, afterward, there will be a little hole in our lives for a while.”

Thanks to all who emailed!
