The Buzz: Harry Potter

Elves, owls and flying brooms... young wizard, Harry Potter is back on the big screen with "Harry Potter and The Chamber Of Secrets".
A scene from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets"
"Pixies, laugh if you will Mr. Finnegan, see what you make of them."
Daniel Radcliffe, returns to the lead role, for more magic along with his familiar cast of friends.
And this time around actor Kenneth Branagh joins the cast.
Actor Daniel Radcliffe says, "It's a much darker story and I think Harry's character is very much very different from the first film.."
Actress Emma Watson, "She's kind of a little less obsessed with books and what and she kind of settles down a little bit. It doesn't take away her character but it sort of just softens it down a bit, which is good."
It's darker, scarier, and creepier than the first Potter movie when Harry fights for the future of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The group started filming the chamber of secrets right after they wrapped the first film and the cast says the experience has been unforgettable.
Radcliffe says,"I wouldn't swap this for anything it was really the best experience. I've developed as a person so much I think even the adults have developed..."
"Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets" opens on Friday.
