AP Article on PoA Premiere
May 23, 2004
The Associated Press has posted this article about the premiere of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban today in NYC.
“Alfonso Cuaron (news) – director of the Mexican hit “Y Tu Mama Tambien” – took over as director for “Prisoner of Azkaban.” The result, the stars said, is a darker and more sophisticated movie than its predecessors.
Cuaron assured parents it’s still the “Harry Potter” kids love.
“It’s not violent. It can be spooky at points, but good spooky,” he said. “Kids like to be spooked a little.”
Adds Radcliffe, “I’ve seen it a couple of times, and the only ones scared were the adults.”
