Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – Film Synopsis
In their third year at Hogwarts, Harry, Ron, and Hermione meet escaped prisoner Sirius Black, learn to handle a half-horse/half-eagle Hippogriff, repel shape-shifting Boggarts, and master the art of Divination. Harry must also withstand soul-sucking Dementors, outsmart a dangerous werewolf and deal with the truth about Sirius and his relationship to Harry and his parents.
Earning an Oscar nomination for the score, John Williams composed the spellbinding and masterful music that has become a celebrated classic; conjuring beautiful, soaring motifs that continue the adventures of Harry Potter and his friends on their magical journey.
