Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) return as teenagers to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for their third year of study. Year Three at Hogwarts means new fun and challenges as Harry learns how to approach a Hippogriff, transform shape-shifting Boggarts into hilarity and even turn back time. But the term also brings danger. Soul-sucking Dementors hover over the school; an ally of the accursed He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named lurks within the castle walls; fearsome wizard Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) escapes Azkaban; and Harry will confront them all. Directed by Alfonso Cuarón (Y Tu Mamá También, A Little Princess) and based on J.K. Rowling's third book, this wondrous spellbinder soars with laughs, shivers and the unique breathless surprise of a Harry Potter adventure.
