  Azkaban is given a PG certificate
Updated 11 May 2004, 15.31
Gary Oldman as Sirius Black in Azkaban
The final version of The Prisoner of Azkaban has been finished and given a PG certificate by the British Board of Film Classification.

The film's darker storyline hasn't stopped it being given the same rating as the first two Harry Potter movies.

Unlike the book of Azkaban, which is longer than the previous two adventures, the film is actually shorter than the last two.

It's official running time is 135 minutes.

Philosopher's Stone clocked in at 152 minutes long, and Chamber of Secrets was a whopping 160 minutes long.

The film has its world premiere in New York on 23 May, and its British premiere a week later on 30 May. Fans will get their chance to check it out shortly after that.
