Harry Potter adaptation 'film of the decade'

17th March 2011

The big screen adaptation of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban has been named the film of the decade at the First Light Awards.

Producer David Heyman collected the award at a ceremony at London's Odeon Leicester Square and said he was 'honoured and privileged' that the film was held in such high regard.

Based on the third novel in the Harry Potter series, the film sees Harry, Ron and Hermione being tracked down by convicted criminal Sirius Black, who has escaped from the notorious Azkaban prison.

Heyman said it was 'especially exciting and moving' that the award was voted for by the public, who have grown up alongside the characters in the films.

'We made the film for children of all ages, really, but clearly a core part of our audience is young people and to be honoured is a privilege,' he added.

Last week, the Royal Mail launched a series of special stamps featuring magical characters from literature, with Lord Voldemort and Albus Dumbledore representing the Harry Potter series.
