A strong Sequence structure keeps the plot points of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on track.
The Prisoner of Azkaban keeps danger closer to Harry in the form of the Dementors and the threat from Sirius Black.
The Screenplay Summary shows how the storyline is mostly set-up of Harry's amazing world and challenges. The script is full of fascinating exposition. Note how the rescue of the Sorcerer's Stone (classic McGuffan) isn't initiated until the end of Act II.(hide)

The Sequence structure tells the story of James' brave and reckless journey through a series of bomb disposal incidents, attacks and deaths in Iraq.(hide)
