Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Best of the Web
Great archive of interviews that J.K. Rowling has done, from the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to the present. We're linking to the 1999 page, which is the year Azkaban came out.
Tons of information and media on Azkaban, the book. While you're there, have fun exploring the rest of the site – though beware of Harry Potter overload.
Rowling posts excerpts from her book and answers all sorts of fan questions.
The HP Lexicon ranks is one of the best Harry Potter data dumps on the web; part encyclopedia, part archive, part magazine, this site has essays, articles, and timelines for all the novels. The Azkaban content is particularly nice, especially the timelines.
We have to give a special shout-out to this Azkaban timeline, which tracks the events of the jam-packed night when Harry and Hermione travel through time. Have fun dissecting everything here, and then go check out the other cool timelines on the site.
We think there's a wiki for everything nowadays, and Harry Potter is no exception. This one has tons of information on everything you could want to know about the series. Go to town browsing the links and cross-references in the Azkaban article.
Wicked author Gregory Maguire reviews the Prisoner of Azkaban back in 1999.

If you were wondering where Voldemort was in this book, wonder no more. He was on the Lost island! Or his action figure was at least. Enjoy the action-figure insanity, which is admittedly funnier if you know something about Lost.

Interviews with various members of the Azkaban cast, as well as the director and producer.
