Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban opens in theaters everywhere
on June 4th.
Thirteen year-old Harry Potter (DANIEL RADCLIFFE) has reluctantly
spent yet another summer with the Dursleys, his dismal relatives,
"behaving himself" and not practicing any magic. That
is, until Uncle Vernon's bullying sister, Aunt Marge (PAM FERRIS),
comes to visit. Aunt Marge has always been particularly horrible
to Harry and this time pushes him so far that he "accidentally"
causes her to inflate like a monstrous balloon and drift away!
Fearing punishment from his Aunt and Uncle (and repercussions
from Hogwarts and the Ministry of Magic, which strictly forbids
students from using magic in the non-magic world), Harry escapes
into the night.
He is promptly picked up by the Knight Bus, a fantastic triple-decker
purple vehicle that whisks him off to the Leaky Cauldron pub.
Upon arrival, Harry is met by the Minister of Magic, Cornelius
Fudge, who inexplicably doesn't punish the teenager for his
errant wizardry and instead insists that he spend the night
at the Leaky Cauldron before heading back to Hogwarts for his
third year of study.
It quickly transpires that a dangerous and enigmatic wizard,
Sirius Black (GARY OLDMAN), has escaped Azkaban prison and is
believed to be searching for Harry. Legend has it that Black
was responsible for leading Lord Voldemort to Harry's parents
and ultimately to their subsequent deaths; it is also believed
that he is determined to kill Harry too.
To make matters worse, Hogwarts is playing host to the Dementors,
the terrifying Azkaban guards who are stationed at the school
in an attempt to protect the students from Black. The Dementors
suck the souls from their victims and, unfortunately for Harry,
they seem to have more of an effect on him than the rest of
his classmates. Their ominous presence chills the young wizard
to the bone, rendering him virtually helpless, until Professor
Lupin (DAVID THEWLIS), the new Defense Against the Dark Arts
teacher, trains Harry in how to use the Patronus Charm to shield
himself from the Dementors' paralyzing effects.
Meanwhile, Harry's third year at Hogwarts is filled with exciting
new creatures like Buckbeak, a magical half-horse, half-eagle
creature called a "Hippogriff"; eerie encounters with
Divination Professor Sibyll Trelawney (EMMA THOMPSON) and the
omen of death known as the "Grim"; and breathtaking
adventures, including clandestine visits to the wizarding village
of Hogsmeade, deciphering secrets hidden in the enchanted Marauder's
Map, and a terrifying trip to the Shrieking Shack (the most
haunted dwelling in Britain).
Along the way, Harry will try to make sense of Hermione's (EMMA
WATSON) puzzling appearances and disappearances, with the help
of Ron (RUPERT GRINT) and the giant Hagrid (ROBBIE COLTRANE),
who has taken on a new position at Hogwarts as the Care of Magical
A confrontation between Harry and the menacing Sirius Black
seems inevitable...but what exactly is Professor Lupin's relationship
with Black? What is the dark secret that Professor Snape (ALAN
RICKMAN) is so eager to reveal? And just why is Ron's pet rat
Scabbers so frantic to escape his grasp?
Harry will need all of the courage, magic and support he can
muster to answer these questions and uncover the truth behind
Sirius Black and his ties to the gifted young wizard's mysterious
