Does anyone know of a D20 system that uses the Harry Potter Universe?

I want to try something new with a few of my friends. We really want to try and get away from the usual D&D for a bit and try to use the Harry Potter universe as a start. I could just build something from scratch based on our knowledge of Harry Potter and those sources (i.e. books, movies, comics, etc.) but I would really appreciate a good starting point as well.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Not d20, so not an actual answer, but related enough to mention - a Harry Potter-esque RPG ... looks like it's still in playtest, and that it focuses on narrating the experiences of kids in a wizarding school: – Simon Withers Jan 27 '12 at 17:00

After Googling, I found this:

Broomstix, the unofficial Harry Potter RolePlaying Game and Character Sheet, which is distributed for free.


And this is some people discussing the idea of a HP RPG.
