  Harris won't be 'recreated' for Azkaban
Updated 19 December 2002, 08.18
Richard Harris as Professor Dumbledore
Richard Harris, the actor who sadly died in October, will not be computer regenerated for the part of Professor Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

There were reports in newspapers that computer technology would be used to recreate him.

But Warner Bros told CBBC Newsround this is completely false.

The reports said unused film footage of Richard as Dumbledore would be superimposed - using computer wizardry - onto his stand-in actor, Harry Robinson.

There's no word yet, though, on who might play the role.
