Final 'Potter' Collection Goes Wide Nov. 1310 Oct, 2012 By: John Latchem
Warner Home Video is making the final “Harry Potter” Ultimate Collector’s Edition boxed set widely available Nov. 13 (order date Oct. 16). The $64.99 Year 7 set, which includes both Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1 and Part 2, is currently available exclusively at Target.
Warner began releasing the “Harry Potter” films as deluxe Ultimate Collector’s Editions on DVD and Blu-ray in 2009, containing a multitude of photo cards, a souvenir book and part of a larger documentary about the making of the saga. Fans who had eschewed the mega Wizard’s Collection of all eight films in favor of the UCEs can now complete their sets.
The Year 7 set includes both films on DVD and Blu-ray, making it the first combo pack in the collection. Previous sets were released as either DVD or Blu-ray editions. With no separate format releases of Year 7 slated, this box serves to complete both the previously released DVD and Blu-ray collections.
The set also includes access to UltraViolet copies of the two films. Extras include the final two chapters of the Creating the World of Harry Potter documentary: “Story” and “Growing Up,” as well as deleted scenes, a slew of behind-the-scenes featurettes, and the extended cut of “A Conversation With JK Rowling and Daniel Radcliffe.”
UCEs of the previous films are offered at $39.92 for DVD and $49.99 for Blu-ray.
