Alfonso Cuaron, who directed the third Harry Potter film, gave fans hope that they may see another Potter film of the quality of his "Prisoner of Azkaban." During a press conference for his Christmas Day opener "Children of Men," Cuaron addressed the children’s magic franchise.

"I would love to have the opportunity of revisiting the ‘Harry Potter’ universe," he said. "It’s an amazing experience to do those films because while you’re doing those films, you’re surrounded by this amazing beneficial energy."

That energy goes beyond just the Hollywood films. ‘Harry Potter‘ is an entire world of media and human interest. "Everything that surrounds the J.K. Rowling creation, I’m not talking about the film franchise but the creation of J.K. Rowling, is impregnated with this amazing beneficial energy. So for me it was two amazing years of my life. I wouldn’t mind at all revisiting that."

The next film in the franchise, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," is directed by David Yates and will hit theaters July 13, 2007.
