Harry Potter and the gang start their third year at Hogwart’s School of Wizardry. Sirius Black has been a prisoner of Azkaban for twelve years, but he has recently escaped along with rumors that he is headed for Hogwarts for Harry Potter.
I started and finished the third Harry Potter book when I was in Dallas. When I was supposed to be mentally preparing myself for a speech I was giving in front of almost 700 people, I was reading the book because I had to know what happened! These books just get started with crazy stuff right away and there is always a little mystery of what is going on. Also, when I think I know what’s going to happen, something surprises me so I enjoy that a lot too. I hate guessing what’s going to happen all the time. Good thing I didn’t have the fourth book with me or I might have started to read that too. 😉
I have hope for the third movie since it has a different director. The other director was so concerned about sticking to the events and timeline of the books that I think he lost the spirit of the books. I thought the movies were kinda boring to watch when the books were so exciting to read. I hope the new director puts some excitement and humor into the movie. Also, it should be fun to see Gary Oldman as Sirius Black.
