Haven’t gotten enough Harry Potter yet? Of course not. Just because there won’t be any new movies doesn’t mean your love of all things Potter will be denied. To help satiate your thirst for the boy wizard’s continuing adventures, Warner Bros. has released a new “Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection” limited edition set that contains 31 whopping discs, all 8 movies in the series, and over 37 hours of special features, including never-before-seen bonus features and behind-the-scenes look at the franchise. And oh, if that’s not enough, there are also a handful of movie memorabilia designed exclusively for this release. Yikes. Got a week or two to kill?
The Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection is a limited edition set containing over 37 hours of special features, including all previously released special features for all eight Harry Potter films. Also included are nearly five hours of exciting, never-before-seen bonus features that offer fans an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the Harry Potter franchise. Wizards and witches everywhere will enjoy the all-new documentaries like “Creating the World of Harry Potter, Part 7: Story,” in which J.K. Rowling sits down with the series’ screenwriter Steve Kloves and discusses the process of translating the books to the big screen. “Creating the World of Harry Potter, Part 8: Growing Up” incorporates new and vintage interviews with the cast to understand what it was like growing up on the set of the world-famous films, and ends with Daniel Radcliffe’s emotionally charged farewell speech to the cast and crew.
Eight pieces of movie memorabilia, designed exclusively for the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection by the graphic designers from the films, give fans a unique chance to bring the artistic details of the world of Harry Potter into their own home. High-quality concept art prints and a colorful fabric map of Hogwarts and the areas surrounding it are perfect for framing. The hard-bound “Harry Potter Catalogue of Artefacts” and the artistic “Label Collection” offer fans a broad look at the intricate details of each film prop. Also included are a blueprint poster of Hogwarts castle, sketch prints from the production designer, a Horcrux locket prop replica and a certificate of authenticity.
