  Chris Columbus: 'HP DVD has 18 mins more!'
Updated 13 November 2002, 17.27
Chris Columbus chats to Lizo
The second Harry Potter movie isn't even officially out yet - but already the director has got us going about the DVD!

In an interview with CBBC Newsround's Lizo Mzimba, he revealed that the DVD will have about 18 minutes of extra footage.

That includes the completely-shot scene in Bourgin and Burks.

Chris Columbus told Lizo it was a "fun" scene, and that there will even be two versions on the DVD.

He also revealed that he thinks the special effects, such as Dobby and Quidditch, are much better this time.

This is partly because they filmed them first and had nine months to get them right.

With Philosopher's Stone they shot them last.

He agreed with Rupert and Emma, who we spoke to earlier this week, saying that the young actors were all more comfortable this time round.

Time for his children

And he said it wasn't a hard decision to turn down the third movie.

He says he hasn't had supper with his children on a weekday for over two years.

"I have four children and I have to give them some time now", he said.
