  First glimpse of the Harry Potter Knight Bus
Updated 12 February 2003, 19.08

The Knight Bus from The Prisoner of Azkaban
Who's on the Knight Bus?
Finally! Potter fans have a sneaky peek of what's in store for the third Potter film, Prisoner of Azkaban.

A photo of the Knight Bus from chapter three of Azkaban has appeared, even though we know for sure proper filming doesn't start until next week.

The bus, which can go anywhere, except underwater, was spotted in the London area. It was being used in some pre-production work also involving Harry himself - Dan Radcliffe.

Often pre-production filming takes place to shoot some special bits in scenes before official filming begins.

The Sun reports Dan had to have a stunt double for some of his shots because they were so dangerous!

No muggles!

The purple triple decker bus is used to transport stranded witches and wizards - so no Muggle passengers allowed!

Harry stumbles across the bus just as he's worrying about breaking Decree for the Restriction of Underage Wizardry.

We can't wait to see some more pictures when filming starts for real next week - keep checking back!
