  Third Potter film is shortest yet
Updated 30 April 2004, 07.47
Alfonso Cuaron is the director of the next Potter film
The third Harry Potter film, the Prisoner of Azkaban, is the shortest one so far according to its producer.

It's reported to be two hours and fifteen minutes long, almost 30 mins shorter than the Chamber of Secrets.

Producer Chris Columbus said: "Every kid who saw the movies wanted them to be longer and almost every adult wanted them shorter."

Columbus added: "But I think this movie is so good that I don't think you'll get a lot of gripes."

There are lots of new characters in the film

Columbus directed the first two films in the series, but stepped away from the camera for the third one.

Instead Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron is making the decisions, and he's kept his film shorter.

All the trailers and pictures from POA look really cool, but news the film isn't as long as the first two may surprise some fans.

Filming on the fourth film, The Goblet of Fire, has already started, this time directed by Brit Mike Newell.
