This movie, which arrives in theaters June 4, 2004, is spookier, darker and more emotional, with a more adolescent and angry Harry Potter, now 13, a new Professor Dumbledore and a more contemporary look for Harry and his pals, Ron and Hermione. All of this from a new director, Alfonso Cuarón.
Producer David Heyman says:
"Alfonso really understands the nuances of being a teenager, and that's vital to this film. It's much more grounded in reality. This is a magical world, but not a fantasy world. This film has the magic of A Little Princess, but the reality of Y Tu Mamá. But I can assure you that Harry, Ron and Hermione are not going off on a road trip. No ménages à trois."
The trailer which appears in theaters next Friday offers the first glimpse of the evil hooded Dementors.
