  No Oliver Wood in Prisoner of Azkaban
Updated 08 March 2003, 15.31
Will there be Quidditch in the third film?
Quidditch in the third Harry Potter film is in doubt after Sean Biggerstaff revealed he's not in the new film.

The actor played Gryffindor captain Oliver Wood in the first two films, but in a statement on his website, Biggerstaff said he won't be in Prisoner of Azkaban.

His website says: "Oliver Wood will not feature in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Obviously this means I won't feature in it either.

Oliver Wood isn't in the third film
Sean says we haven't heard the last of him
"When putting a novel of the scale of POA into a two-hour movie, cuts have to be made. This time Oliver was one of them."

There are two Quidditch matches in the third book, and it would seem to be really difficult to show those without the Gryffindor team captain.

But we won't know for sure if Quidditch has got the chop from the film until a later date.
