When “Prisoner of Azkaban” kicks off, Harry receives lovely unsettling information: Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), a convicted assassin, has escaped from wizarding jail… and turns out to be looking Harry himself. That is already a sexy darkish storyline — and Sirius’ tale seems to be one thing else solely — however in accordance to Cuarón, the darkness may be intended to constitute Harry’s psychological enlargement as he turns 13.
“‘Azkaban’ is a coming of age,” Cuarón explains within the particular. “They are passing the edge between youth and the teenage years. Within the first two, Harry remains to be a kid. There’s a higher optimism across the tone itself. Nonetheless, when he turns 13, there’s a giant cloud that overshadows the whole lot round Harry. And we wanted to put across that stylistically.” This explains why such a lot of the movie is shot in opposition to grey landscapes — a great environment for the dementors, who convey darkish clouds with them and constitute despair and sorrow and make their first sequence look in “Azkaban.”
The “Potter” motion pictures and the reunion particular are each to be had to stream on HBO Max now.
