With every Harry Potter movie Warner Bros. make there is an ever-growing pile of footage piling up on the cutting room floor, so after 9 years of accumulation they’ve decided to add it all onto the end of the previously released movies, and sell it.
The first two of these Ultimate Editions are obviously Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which will be released next month alongside the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. They are now available to pre-order from Amazon:
Along with new scenes the Ultimate Editions will also show never before seen footage from behind the scenes, and the videos below show how Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint got their lead roles in the biggest movie franchise of all time.
I’m actually the same age as these guys, so it’s been cool to see them grow up with me (or me with them). Anyway, here’s a trailer for the whole Ultimate Edition series:
While I’m please Warner Bros. have done this, I’m a bit confused as to what to do with the Half-Blood Prince DVD. Do I buy it next month, or so I wait months, possible another year, for the Ultimate Edition? Warner Bros. aren’t getting twice the money from me!
In related Harry Potter news, Deathly Hallows Part I will be released in exactly 1 year.
