Rotten Tomatoes UK recently caught up with Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuaron and spoke to him about his feelings on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and asked the director if he had any interest in returning to direct the film of the last Harry Potter book. Saying he has just begun reading “Deathly Hallows”, Alfonso Cuaron gave the following answer about his feelings if he were to be offered a directing position for the film adaptation of the book:

“You know, it was such a great opportunity and such a beautiful two years and everything around Harry Potter – JK Rowling’s creation – is enveloped in this really beneficial energy. I got the benefits of that energy for those two years. So yes I’d be very tempted to do so even though, at this point, I feel a little bit like I have to try to do the films that are not going to exist without me. On the same token, I would be really tempted because it was really beautiful. I just started reading the last book and something I respect is the care the producers have put in the film franchise. It would have been so easy after the success of the series just to take the cynical approach of knowing that no matter what people are going to see those movies. Actually they’ve been taking a lot of care from beginning to end, so yeah I would be really tempted.”

Thanks much to Joe from RottenTomatoes!

He is the best man, definitively, I really loved the PoA movie, although the book was not that good. The first two movies were kinda lame, too long, not thrilling, boring, and GoF was awesome, but not as good as the book, and OotP, well, it was balanced, not a great book, a good movie.
I really loved what he did for the movie, the extra elements he put, the Dementors, Buckbeak, everything! And also the acting, you can see the difference between the first 2 movies, and then, the huge difference, he did that, he worked very hard to improve the acting of the cast.
I think he would be great, who cares if he change or cut something, I mean, the book is so big, any director would do the same anyway.
Also the music, I hope John Williams return, I don’t know why he was replaced, the music from the last 2 movies was so normal, nothing special, nothing to remember.

Harry knew that many of them preferred Professor Grubbly-Plank's lessons, and the worst of it was that a very small, unbiased part of him knew that they had good reason: Grubbly-Plank's idea of an interesting class was not one where there was a risk that
