Chris Columbusopens in new window, past director of the Harry Potter movies & current producer of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban told SCI FI Wireopens in new window that he's impressed with how director Alfonso Cuarónopens in new window has assumed the director's chair for the next movie.

Columbus, who has already seen Azkaban three times says this about the movie:

"As a director I've always been excited about sequences. In Azkaban, that kind of scene for me is the first attack on the train by the Dementors. It's such a beautifully directed scene that Alfonso has done. I remember that scene immensely. And there's also Harry's (Daniel Radcliffeopens in new window) first ride on the hippogryph, which is just magical and poetic. I keep thinking about those scenes constantly and [also about] how proud I am to be involved in them, but mostly how wonderful a job Alfonso has done as a director.
