Harry Potter 2004 Plot:-
Harry Potter has been spending another dissatisfying summer with The Dursleys. When Harry’s Aunt Marge insults his parents, he loses his temper and silently wills her to bloat up and float away. Fed up, Harry then flees the Dursleys with his luggage. The Knight Bus delivers Harry to the Leaky Cauldron, where he is pardoned by Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge for using magic outside of Hogwarts.
After reuniting with his best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, Harry learns that Sirius Black, a convicted supporter of the dark wizard Lord Voldemort, has escaped Azkaban prison and intends to kill Harry. The trio returns to Hogwarts for the school year on the Hogwarts Express, only for dementors to suddenly board the train, searching for Sirius. One enters the trio’s compartment, causing Harry to pass out, but new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher Professor Lupin repels the dementor with a Patronus Charm.
At Hogwarts, headmaster Albus Dumbledore announces that dementors will be guarding the school while Sirius is at large. Hogwarts groundskeeper Rubeus Hagrid is announced as the new Care of Magical Creatures teacher; his first-class goes awry when Draco Malfoy deliberately provokes the hippogriff Buckbeak, who attacks him. Draco exaggerates his injury, and his father Lucius Malfoy later has Buckbeak sentenced to death. The Fat Lady’s portrait, which guards the Gryffindor quarters, is found ruined and empty.
Terrified and hiding in another painting, she tells Dumbledore that Sirius has entered the castle. During a stormy Quidditch match against Hufflepuff, dementors attack Harry, causing him to fall off his broomstick. At Hogsmeade, Harry is shocked to learn that not only had Sirius been his father’s best friend and apparently betrayed them to Voldemort. Please See More Information…….
Harry Potter 2004 Production:-
With Prisoner of Azkaban, production of the Harry Potter films switched to an eighteen-month cycle, which producer David Heyman explained was “to give each the time it required. Chris Columbus, the director of the previous two films, decided not to return to helm the third installment as he “hadn’t seen [his] own kids for supper in the week for about two and a half years.
Even so, he remained on as a producer alongside Heyman. Guillermo del Toro was approached to direct but considered the previous two films “so bright and happy and full of light, that wasn’t interested. Marc Forster turned down the film because he had made Finding Neverland and did not want to direct child actors again.
M. Night Shyamalan was considered to direct but turned it down because he was working on his own film, The Village. Warner Bros. then composed a three-name shortlist for Columbus’s replacement, which comprised Callie Khouri, Kenneth Branagh (who played Gilderoy Lockhart in Chamber of Secrets) and eventual selection Alfonso Cuarón. Cuarón was initially nervous about accepting, as he had not read any of the books or seen the films.
After reading the series, he changed his mind and signed on to direct, as he had immediately connected to the story. Cuarón’s appointment pleased J. K. Rowling who loved his film Y Tu Mamá También and was impressed with his adaptation of A Little Princess. Heyman found that “tonally and stylistically, [Cuarón] was the perfect fit. As his first exercise with the actors who portray the central trio, Cuarón 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.
Harry Potter 2004 Music:-
The Academy Award-nominated score was the third and final score in the series to be composed and conducted by John Williams. It was released on CD on 25 May 2004. In general, this film’s music is not as bright as that of the previous films, with distinct medieval influences in the instrumentation.
One of the new themes, “Double Trouble,” was written during production so that a children’s choir could perform it in Hogwarts’s Great Hall in one of the film’s earlier scenes. The lyrics of “Double Trouble” are from a ritual performed by the Weïrd Sisters in Act 4, Scene 1 of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The film’s trailer prominently features the cues “Anticipation” and “Progeny” by Brand X Music, a trailer music band.
