Avada Kedavra! New Harry Potter screens

Harry Potter
fans area dedicated bunch. They've already locked in their orders for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the 7th and last book in the series. The movies and games, unfortunately, lag far behind their literary brethren thanks to very long production schedules. As such, we're just now rolling around to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix -- the 5th book -- on the big screen and in video game form. Still, if the early screens (courtesy of X360 Daily) are anything to go by, the game looks to be shaping up quite nicely. The character models are very detailed, and the spell effects look decent too. We also know that the game is getting a sandbox-style makeover, so fans should really get a kick out of exploring Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
