  Azkaban is all about teen angst
Updated 18 January 2004, 15.34
Alfonso Cuaron on the Azkaban set with Daniel Radcliffe
The director of the third Potter movie has said the film focuses on "classic teen issues" much more than the others.

Alfonso Cuaron said the Prisoner of Azkaban was a much older book than the first two, when the kids have to deal with the problems of growing up.

"Harry goes through a journey where he realises that demons aren't just things that go bump in the night," he said.

"But also can be painful emotions, worries about family, friends, the future. That's a classic teen issue."

More modern

Alfonso added that Harry, Ron and Hermione have to figure out the forces of darkness while also trying to work out what it's like being a teenager.

Mr Cuaron took over the directing job from Chris Columbus, who was in charge of the first two films.

He also said that he was trying to make the third film look more modern, as the children wear normal clothes under their Hogwarts' robes.

The Prisoner of Azkaban is out on 4 June.
