After the original Dumbledore actor, Richard Harris, died in 2002, the role of Dumbledore had to be recast. Ian McKellen was approached for the role, but having just portrayed Gandalf in Lord of the Rings, he stated, "I had enough trouble living up to one legend. Two would be too much to hope for." He also didn't want the role because Harris had previously called him a "dreadful actor," and the role eventually went to Michael Gambon.

While Hermione's (Emma Watson) cat torments Ron's (Rupert Grint) sickly rat, causing a rift among the trio, a swarm of nasty Dementors is sent to protect the school from Black. A mysterious new teacher helps Harry learn to defend himself, but what is his secret tie to Sirius Black?
