STORY



PRODUCTION

Development

With the film adaptation of聽Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, production of the聽Harry Potter聽films switched to an eighteen-month cycle, which producer聽David Heyman聽explained was “to give each [film] the time it required.” Chris Columbus, the director of聽Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone聽(2001) and聽Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets聽(2002), decided not to return to helm the third instalment as he wanted to spend more time with his children. Even so, Columbus remained on as a producer alongside Heyman, as Columbus felt that such capacity offered him a better work-life balance, allowing him to not be present on the set all the time and spend time with his children.聽Guillermo del Toro聽was approached to direct, but had envisioned a more聽Dickensian聽version of the stories, and was put off by the first two films which he found too “bright and happy and full of light”.聽Marc Forster聽turned down the film because he had made聽Finding Neverland聽(2004) and did not want to direct child actors again.聽M. Night Shyamalan聽was considered to direct but turned it down because he was working on his own film,聽The Village聽(2004). Warner Bros. then composed a three-name shortlist for Columbus’s replacement, which consisted of聽Callie Khouri,聽Kenneth Branagh聽(who played聽Gilderoy Lockhart聽in聽Chamber of Secrets) and eventual selection聽Alfonso Cuar贸n聽in July 2002. Cuar贸n was initially reluctant to direct, as he had not read any of the books or seen the films. Del Toro berated him for his arrogance and told him to read the books. After reading the series, he changed his mind and signed on to direct, as he had immediately connected to the story.

Cuar贸n’s appointment pleased聽J. K. Rowling, who loved his film聽Y tu mam谩 tambi茅n聽(2001) and was impressed with his adaptation of聽A Little Princess聽(1995). Heyman found that “tonally and stylistically, [Cuar贸n] was the perfect fit.” As his first exercise with the actors who portray the central trio, Cuar贸n assigned Radcliffe, Grint and Watson to write an autobiographical essay about their character, written in the first person, spanning birth to the discovery of the magical world, and including the character’s emotional experience. Cuar贸n recalls, “Emma’s essay was 10 pages long. Daniel’s was exactly two. Rupert didn’t deliver the essay. When I questioned why he didn’t do it, he said, ‘I’m Ron; Ron wouldn’t do it.’ So I said, ‘Okay, you do understand your character.’ That was the most important piece of acting work that we did on聽Prisoner of Azkaban, because it was very clear that everything they put in those essays was going to be the pillars they were going to hold on to for the rest of the process.”



CAST

  • Daniel Radcliffe聽as聽Harry Potter: A 13-year-old British聽wizard聽famous for surviving his parents’ murder at the hands of the evil dark wizard聽Lord Voldemort聽as an infant, who now enters his third year at聽Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
  • Rupert Grint聽as聽Ron Weasley: Harry’s best friend at Hogwarts and a younger member of the Weasley wizarding family.
  • Emma Watson聽as聽Hermione Granger: Harry’s other best friend and the trio’s brains.
  • Robbie Coltrane聽as聽Rubeus Hagrid: The聽gamekeeper聽and new聽Care of Magical Creatures聽teacher at Hogwarts.
  • Michael Gambon聽as聽Albus Dumbledore:
    The聽headmaster聽of Hogwarts and one of the greatest wizards of all time. Gambon assumed the role after聽Richard Harris, who played Dumbledore in the previous two films, died of聽Hodgkin’s disease聽on 25 October 2002, three weeks before the second film’s release. Despite his illness, Harris was determined to film his part, telling a visiting David Heyman not to recast the role. Four months after Harris’s death, Cuar贸n chose Gambon as his replacement. Gambon was unconcerned with bettering or copying Harris, giving his own interpretation instead, but putting on a slight Irish accent for the role as an homage to him. He completed his scenes in three weeks. The producers originally offered the role to聽Christopher Lee聽and聽Ian McKellen, but scheduling conflicts forced Lee to decline whilst McKellen turned it down as he had played a similar character聽Gandalf聽in聽The Lord of the Rings聽trilogy. He also stated it would have been inappropriate to take Harris’ role, as Harris had previously called McKellen a “dreadful” actor. Harris’ family had expressed an interest in seeing Harris’s close friend聽Peter O’Toole聽being chosen as his replacement, but the producers felt that his age and health would become troublesome down the line.
  • Richard Griffiths聽as聽Vernon Dursley: Harry’s Muggle uncle.
  • Gary Oldman聽as聽Sirius Black:
    Harry’s infamous godfather, who escapes from the Wizarding prison聽Azkaban聽after serving twelve years there for being falsely accused of being the聽Death Eater聽who betrayed Harry’s parents to Voldemort. Oldman accepted the part because he needed the money, as he had not taken on any major work in several years after deciding to spend more time with his children. He was “surprised by how difficult it was to pull off”, comparing the role to聽Shakespearean聽dialogue.
  • Alan Rickman聽as聽Severus Snape: The聽Potions聽teacher at Hogwarts and head of聽Slytherin.
  • Fiona Shaw聽as聽Petunia Dursley: Harry’s Muggle aunt.
  • Maggie Smith聽as聽Minerva McGonagall:聽Deputy Headmistress聽of Hogwarts, the聽Transfiguration聽teacher at Hogwarts and head of聽Gryffindor.
  • Timothy Spall聽as聽Peter Pettigrew: A former friend of Harry’s parents said to have been killed by Sirius Black, but was later revealed to have been the real Death Eater who betrayed Harry’s parents to Voldemort.
  • David Thewlis聽as聽Remus Lupin:
    The new聽Defence Against the Dark Arts聽teacher at Hogwarts and a聽werewolf. Thewlis, who had previously auditioned for the role of聽Quirinus Quirrell聽in聽Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone聽(2001), was Cuar贸n’s first choice for the role of Professor Lupin. He accepted the role on advice from聽Ian Hart, who was cast as Quirrell, and had told him that Professor Lupin was “the best part in the book.” Thewlis had seen the first two films and had only read part of the first book, although he read the third after taking the role.
  • Emma Thompson聽as聽Sybill Trelawney: The聽Divination聽teacher at Hogwarts.
  • Julie Walters聽as聽Molly Weasley: Ron’s mother.
