Even though Harry Potter author JK Rowling didn't attend yesterday's premiere of the movie, due to a family illness, she has seen it said David Heyman.

According to David Heymanopens in new window:

She gave me a long list of things that she loved and said the films were getting better and better.

Director, Mike Newell also discussed what may be on the DVD next year:

Jarvis Cocker and Radiohead play songs which are short in the film, but are in full on the DVD.

There will be some deleted scenes, how we did certain things, how the effects were done and behind the scenes interviews - probably greater access that we've ever had before.

David on Order of the Phoenix:

We start filming in February. [Director] David Yates has already done a pass through of the entire film in storyboards. He brings a real sensitivity and humanity to the film.

Luna is a key part. She's someone who's unconventional, a little eccentric, but utterly charming and irrestible.

In the fifth film we have the Black Family Tapestry. In the book there's a bit of information. But in the film we need to fill that out, and she'll provide us with that information.

Filming for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix begins in February 2006.
