Epic Harry Potter Box Set Coming to Amazon Later This Year
03.02.12 by Mandy
Hey Potterphiles, do you have $350 burning a hole in your pocket? If so, then Warner Bros. have a deal for you! A new box set is available for pre-order on Amazon that includes a 31-disc set of movies and special features, collectible memorabilia, a map of Hogwarts, and one very cool box. There's no date given for when the Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Digital set will be available, but it is promised to be released before the end of 2012.
Some may be wondering how eight movies get spread out across a 31-disc collection. Apparently the Harry Potter Wizards Collection contains 18 movie discs, including both the theatrical releases and the extended cuts of Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets, and both 3D and 2D versions of Parts 1 and 2 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. We're betting that the 40 Harry Potter fans that actually own a 3D TV are stoked about that! The other 13 discs contain special features, though only 5 hours of the special features are of the "never before seen" variety.
This is the first new box set to be announced since Warners decided last year that none of the previously released DVDs, Blu-rays or box sets would be shipped out to stores after Dec. 29, 2011. If the plan is to release box sets such as the Wizards Collection, it seems like it might be a good time to grab one of those $80 sets that haven't yet sold out.
