Harry Potter producer, David Heyman believes the Potter franchise remains a force to be reckoned with and that the recent outpouring of fans at the premiere of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban shows that it is alive and well.
David on the turnout for the premiere in New York:
"Judging by the response outside of Radio City Music Hall, it was alive and well. It was amazing. So it's hard to tell. I hope that it's alive and well. I think that it is. You see and hear the enthusiasm from friends second hand and third hand. I see the response of the fans in the street [at the premiere], and so it seems pretty good."
Asked about what part of Goblet of Fire he was most excited to see, Heyman replied:
"Well, there's a lot involved. I look forward to the 'three tasks,' and I'm particularly looking forward to the 'unexpected task.' I think that this is a film where boys and girls begin to interact in a much more concrete way. I'm looking forward to seeing that come to life. I think that it'll be a really funny film. I think that it'll also work as a thriller, because it is a thriller. And Lord Voldemort is back."
