When you first get on the island, there will be paparazzi there taking your picture saying your famous. After a couple of second they realize you aren’t famous and run off to a celebrity named Willy Bingleman, which was going into the Queequeg’s coffee shop (on the far right), go inside the coffee shop.

Queequeg’s Coffee Shop

When you get inside go talk to the homeless man. He said his name was Willy Bingleman!


He asks you alot of questions, like, have you seen my movie or have you ever heard of me, but you say I haven’t seen/heard of you before. So, he says I will star in a big movie one day, again. Leave the coffee shop, and go one shop over to the left called One-of-a-Kind Talent Agency

One-of-a-Kind Talent Agency

Once you get inside, go all the way to the right. There will be a woman at the deck, she says you look like a star, and you say, me, a star? Then she says if you pay a thousand dollars, we can get started on your career.


You say what!?! A thousand dollars, I don’t have a thousand dollars! Then she says, If you are looking for money, you should go see Harvey Scoops, he’s looking for help. Now, leave the building and head right to the next area, called Sunrise Street.


Sunrise Street

Once you get there, head past the theater and souvenir shop to a wall with a guy standing next to it, click on him and he says he’s Harvey Scoops!


He’s says in the next question he’s investigating the place because rumors have swirled that someone’s been working in there! In the last question you ask if you can help, and he says yes. But, he said why don’t you climb this building and get a picture and gives you a camera!


Now, go all the way to the far left on Main Street, you will see this guy with camera in front of the Celebrity Wax Museum. Now, click use on the Telephoto Camera and he will give you some Camera Film.


Now, go back to where Harvey Scoops is at and climb the building. Go to your list, and click use on the Camera Film. It will combine with the Camera and it will work. Now, click use on the camera and take a photograph of a man with a beard, in the building next to the Souvenir Shop. Once you take it you an earthquake will happen and you will fall into the property.

Grand Majestic Studios

After you wake up from being unconscious, run right and click on the door to enter the stage.


When you click on it, the assistant director of the movie will come out. She asks are you security, and you say no. So, she says thank gosh, because she doesn’t want the movie to be interrupted. Then you ask what movie, and she says it’s being made by Carson Willis, the greatest filmaker of all time who has been missing. After you finish talking to her, enter the building.

Stage #1

Once you get there, run left onto the stage, Kirk Staryer is acting. He gets mad that someone always interupts his scene, so he runs off with Carson Willis chasing after him trying to get him to continue the movie. So, I went go talk to the cameraman for some answers and here’s what he said.

You're kind getting wishy-washy now.

You’re kind getting wishy-washy now.

After, Kirk leaves, follow them. Once you get outside, the assistant director is freaking out about the schedule, she’s like we need Kirk back, then she says to me you need to go get him. First, in my mind, I refused, but I realized I got a sweet ride in the deal! My own……. Golf Cart!

It's all mine baby, It's all mine! MWHAAAAA!

It’s all mine baby, It’s all mine! MWHAAAAA!

Once you leave the first stage, you need to look for Kirk’s trailer. So, go straight down until you reach the far bottom wall, they turn around and go up to the right a lttle bit and you will see his trailer. If you don’t see it, here’s a picture to help you out.


Kirk Strayer’s Trailer

Once you get there, click on the star door, you will knock. He will say, go away, then you ask, what is it going to take to get you out of there? He says he wants a Half-Caf Leviathen Latte-Expresso on the double. Then a cup comes out of the skylight on the trailer. Now, hop on your golf cart, and head back to Stage 1.

Once, you get back to Stage 1, go all the way to the left and open the gate so you can get out and get his coffee.


Once you leave, run all the way back to Main Street, and enter one of the two Queequeg’s Coffee refill Kirk’s cup. The guy at the register will tell you he is out of that particular drink so you will have to choose another. Choose the coffee shown in the picture below.

Now exit the coffee shop and run to the left until you get to the other coffee shop. Talk to the lady at the register and she will also tell you she is out of that particular coffee. Order as shown in the picture below.

Now open your menu items and choose the Infant Sized Coffee. Pour both cups of coffee into the larger cup and you will have made the coffee that Kirk wanted.

Go all the way back to Kirk’s trailer after you have done this. Knock on his door again and you will tell him you have his coffee.

Jump back into the cart and go back to Soundstage #1. Once the old guy stops talking, jump up the wooden stairs and use the camera.

When using the camera, just make sure to keep Kirk in the middle of the screen at all times like in the picture below.

Once you are done filming, exit Sound stage #1 and jump into your cart again. Go all the way to the right until you get to Soundstage #2.

Enter the soundstage and talk to the lady there. Now exit the soundstage and go back to Soundstage #1. Jump to the top of Soundstage #1 using the ledges on the left.

Talk to the guy on top od the building. Now go to the left and go back to the top of the green building. There will be a screenplay page on the antenna there.

Continue left and get to the top of the theater building. You will find another screenplay page on top of that building. To get to the top, use the object in the picture below to boost you up there by jumping on it!

Keep going left until you get to the coffee house. Another page will be there. Keep going left until you get to the Celebrity Was Museum and the last page will be on the far left of the top of that building.

Once you have all of the pages, go all the way back to the right and talk to the guy on top of the Soundstage #1.

Give him the pgaes and jump back into your cart. Go back to Soundstage #2 and talk to the lady again. Now its time to put the script pages in order. Open the scripts from your menu.

The 3rd one is 1st, the 4th one is 2nd, the 1st one is 3rd and the 2nd one is 4th.

Now you will get an actress headshot and its your job to find someone that looks like her to play the part in the movie.

Exit the soundstage and go back all the way to the beginning of the island and enter the One-Of-A-Kind Talent Agency. Give the lady at the desk the headshot.

The lady at the desk will surprise you and is actually Lacy Williams.

Now head back to Soundstage #2. Once you are here, you will have to play the role of the navigator. Go to the left and jump up to change into costume.

The first thing you say in the film is “But-”. When it comes up, offer her a compass. Next, say “safe journeys! I’ll never forget you!”. Next thing to say is “Noooooo!”.

Now exit the soundstage and go to Soundstage #3 which is all the way to the right and to the bottom of the road map.

Enter the stage and talk to the lady on the left. Now you will have to put together 3 puzzles. Watch the video for how to do this!




Now run to the right and jump above the door and grab some hats. There will be a white and a black cowboy hat.

Now exit Soundstage #1 and go back to the beginning of the island so you can find some actors.

The first will be in the first coffee shop and will look like the guy in the image below. Give him the black cowboy hat.

The second will be in the Digital Dreamscapes store and looks like the guy in the picture below. Give him the white cowboy hat.

Now you need to get back to Soundstage #3. Once you get there, talk to the lady again. You will not be the stunt coordinator.

All you need to do here is press on the buttons that relate to whatever the director says. Watch the video walkthrough if you need help.

Once you are done, exit the soundstage and go to Soundstage #4 which is all the way to the right and down a bit.

Enter this soundstage and you will now dress up as an ape and your role is to destroy the city. Simple jump on the buildings popping all of the balloons and destroying all of the lights to do this!

At the end you will have to fall off of all the buildings. Once you are done filming, exit the soundstage and go to the Post Production building which is the one across the street to the left.

Talk to the old guy and then head to the Film Editing computer to the left. You will have to cut some shots out. To find out how to do this, watch the video! Its hard to explain.

When done with the film editing, go to the sound editing screen to the right. Watch the video on how to do this as well!

Once you are completely done editing the film, talk to the old man again. He will give you film reels.

Now head all the way back to the beginning of the island and go to the theater. Talk to the lady standing outside of it. Say “He’s a strange guy, What’s his deal?”.

Enter the theater and run to the right. Now jump up and use the seats to go all the way to the left to the projector room. Use the film reels to add the movie to the projector.

Once the movie is over, exit the theater and talk to the lady once again. She will give you your gold medallion! Congratulations, you’ve completed Back Lot Island!

Bonus Quest

poptropica bli bonus quest


But wait…there’s a bonus quest to be had. Sofia tells you that a camera was left on in Soundstage 1. The bonus quest description: “Sneak into the studio and evade security to win a new prize in this island’s bonus quest! Plus, get a bonus prize pack of costumes and items.”

Enter the studio and go to Soundstage 1. Jump up to the camera to grab it. Just as you do, the Warren sisters, the owners of Grand Majestic Studios, will catch you and accuse you of trespassing. You hightail it out of there.

Avoid Back Lot Security

“Avoid and outlast the Back Lot security.  Collect (rockets) for speed boosts.  Collect (green balls) for extra protection.”

You’ll be in your cart and need to dodge the security carts that come after you. The trick is to just stay to the outside roads as much as possible. Don’t try grabbing the rockets or green balls, just keep moving. It’s a little challenging, but not super difficult.

The reward is a cool hand-held camera! Congrats!
