Fourth Potter flick footage on air soon

Los Angeles: In ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’, the fourth film based on the best-selling JK Rowling books, Harry and his wizard pals, Hermione and Ron, are coping with the angst that accompanies being teens. The second film, ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’, makes its network television debut Saturday on ABC with 13 minutes of additional footage, plus a glimpse of the upcoming fourth film, which opens Nov 18.

In ‘Goblet of Fire’, the young wizards are “much more complicated,” says director Mike Newell, the first British filmmaker to helm a Potter movie. “In the first three films, their characters were defined by what they were up against: a werewolf, a basilisk, a dementor. But this time, the story is how they’re developing as people. So the school’s Yule Ball is a torture to Harry and Ron because they have to ask girls out, and they don’t know how.”

In ‘Goblet’, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) again faces his mortal foe, Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). Radcliffe had to learn to scuba-dive, then act underwater, as the physical requirements of the new film were much tougher. — USA Today
