Prisoner of Azkaban Escapes on DVD

Alfonso Cuarón stepped into the directors chair for HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, the third and darkest entry so far in the smash movie franchise, which arrives on DVD Nov. 23, 2004 (Warner Home Video, $29.95). Not surprisingly, along with the creepier plot and creeping sense of doubt, the vfx are up to the task, particularly the CGI creatures such as Buckbeak and the Dementors. Dazzling work all the way around from ILM and those Soho stalwarts MPC, Cinesite (Europe), Framestore CFC and Double Negative.
