The Trivia of: Harry Potter (30 person items)

" Mike Newell (director of The Goblet of Fire) decided against the studio's original idea of adapting the extremely long book into two separate films to be released several months apart, figuring that he could cut enough of the book's bulky subplots to make a workable film. It was Alfonso Cuarón, the director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, who convinced him."
