Rumor Alert: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD Due November 19th?


Apr 25, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

With the sixth Harry Potter film due in theaters this July, there are already rumors of when the DVD might be released. A German BluRay website is reporting today that possibly the Blu- Ray disc of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released in late fall to be part of the Christmas holiday shopping season, with a possible November 19th release date. In addition, many websites are starting to add “notify when available for pre-order” links to Half-Blood Prince DVD, such as Amazon. Please note, as exciting as this date may seem, this most certainly has not been confirmed by Warner
Brothers yet, and should be considered a rumor for the time being.

XDAvatar ImageName Unknown says: Fingers crossed! I could get it for my birthday!Avatar Imageblind_pilot says: That would be so awesome! I would make sure to get that for Christmas! :DAvatar Imagethenexthermione says: Hang on. Won't that clash with the release of new moon? Some people can't afford to both go to new moon and buy the dvd! At least i can't :PAvatar ImageHPNAIV says: OMG, I totally forgot about New Moon! LMAO. I bet HBP would crush Twilight with just the sales of DVDS. Hahahahaahaha. Let it be released in November!! :)Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: ooooo.....this is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: I hope it's true!!! *although I'll be watching HBP like 10x or more in cinemas* :DAvatar ImageBeatrice Alice Potter says: Je suis vraiment excité aussi! :D Avatar ImageFereverto says: Ohhh, I want it too! I don't have Blu-ray, but that's okay, I can't afford it anyhow.Avatar ImageLemonFaerie says: Hmph. I distinctly remember having a "November release date" for OoTP and then about a month before getting the news that the DVD would be released in the UK and some European places in November, but in the US we had to wait until December 5th. (And all my UK friends cackling and crowing over it while we suffered and waited!) After all the other date changes and everything, I'm not going to believe a WORD about that DVD until I have the thing in my hot little hand.Avatar ImageMatea says: just one day before New moon. how interesting.Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: whoa. it'd be pretty neat if this were true.Avatar Imagepotter2005 says: That will be sooo cool if we do : ) and hopefully it will come with a sneak peek of something relating to DHs as an added bonus Avatar Imageavrenim says: that would be cool, but i'm sure they'll change the date again :P (hopefully not from november to july this time, though!)Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: That is really cool! My 5 Harry Potter DVD will become 6 in sooner time. :D Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: i hope it crushes twilight! >:)Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: If the movie is out in theaters this summer than the DVD will definitely be out by christmas. The summer movies are ALWAYS out by the end of the year. It makes the most sense to capitalize on all those blockbusters around the holiday season. Not much of a surprise.Avatar Imagearkapain says: Oh yeah there was a November DVD release for OotP. Except it was in DECEMBER. Shouldn't the DVD have been out by now if the movie had been released in november, though? =(Avatar ImageRaWr...WeReWoLf says: i hope this is true!!Avatar ImageRaWr...WeReWoLf says: i hope this is true!!Avatar ImageAutumnWizard says: Huzzah!Avatar Imagejonfrog says: hopefuly there wont be another potterless christmas. since the books came out there was always a bit of potter for my christmas, first the books and maybe something else potter related and then the new movies that would come out. Avatar Imagehbp will be betterthan tdk says: amazing Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: That would be so cool! That is the same day as one of my best friend's birthday, and four days before my birthday! :)Avatar Imageameema says: that'd be cool if it were true. but blue-ray is too expensive :(Avatar ImagemOOn-stArs-sUn says: I really hope this rumor proves to be accurate. It would be brilliant to have it released in November! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. . . . Avatar Imageharrypotterfan5324 says: YES!!!!!! PLEASE COME OUT IN NOVEMBER!!! I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL DECEMBER LIKE WE WE HAD TO WAIT FOR OotP!!!Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: can't wait! :)Avatar ImageLinnyish says: I wonder if my parents might swallow their HP-Hate and get me it for Christmas.. Hmm, I think I'll have to get it for myself again lol.Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: we will get lots of dates when the disc will be out but wait till WB releases the true dateAvatar Imagespicefan1978 says: That would be great! Just in time for Christmas! I hope this to be true!Avatar ImageBrad Ausrotas says: Just in time for my birthday. Sweet deal.Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: WHOO!Avatar Imagetreebeliever says: So soon? Whoa. Avatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: They're definitely trying to kill New Moon. Gotta love WB and their cockiness, right? But seriously, I'm not complaining. November 19 is like a month earlier than usual.Avatar Imagerichkid50000 says: Sweet this is awesome if it happens!!!!!!Avatar ImageBway759_ says: Awesome!! That's the least Warner Bros. can do after delaying the movie for 9 months!Avatar Imagedecarus says: I don't think that Harry Potter needs to worry about Twilight. The two are not related. I saw the first twilight and didn't like it. They aren't even similar kinds of films except that they are both for kids. Avatar ImageVideoKID says: Yay thats amazing :)Avatar ImageLilly-Angel1 says: Wellll..... I am a bit ANGRY. Is it ONLY gonna be released in Blu-Ray. Really, DO WE NEED ANY KIND OF STUPID STUFF LIKE THAT? WE JUST NEED TO WATCH THE DARN THING. Well, I hope it will be avaible for Regular DVD format, too. And why are you guys worried that Harry Potter might not crush Twilight? OF COURSE IT WILL. DUH. GOOSSHHH!!!! LOL, Anyway, Unless they, like, rellease the DVD like, a month after the movie comes out, I am still gonna be *ANGRY* beyond belief at WB. I HATE them. They had no right to do that. Nov. To July? Really?!?! I was, excuse the language, *PISSED* when I found that out. And then they relize they made a mistake and relese it two friggin days earlier??!!! Oh, wow. BIG IMPROVEMENT THERE WARNER BROTHERS!!!!! Dumb load of s**t. I hate WB,Avatar ImageLilly-Angel1 says: :PAvatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: It would be marvelous if the DVD were released just before the Thanksgiving shopping weekend!Avatar Imagesunshine123 says: ooooo. thats cool but we haven't even seen the hbp in the cinema yet let alone on dvd. but still squee. thats one xmas prezzie sorted outAvatar Image00AMR00 says: oh no, i wanted the DVD to be released after the movie directly it's so cool to watch the movie in cinema then go back to watch it at home especially on Blu-Ray :) i hope.Avatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Awesome! I hope this is true! :) Avatar ImagePewterWolf says: If that's true, the DVD will be released 4 months after the film's release... surely Warner will put it more in the middle of HBP release and DH1 release... unless they want to get everyone in the Christmas spread-mode...Avatar ImageErinM says: If that were true, it would surely shorten the time we need to wait between movies again! Avatar Imagechrissyweasley says: uh this is crazy lol. the movie hasnt even come out and we're getting the movie dvd release date rumors xDAvatar Imagefloridianhp says: hope its true.Avatar ImageThe Giant Toadstool says: HBP is going to be a killer! XDAvatar ImageThe Giant Toadstool says: EVERYTHING is going to be sold out!! Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: This will be great if it's true.Avatar ImageCourtney Quirke says:'d have been funnier if it had come out on the 21st.Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: hahah isnt that sickly ironic that the dvd will come out 2 days before the movie was orrigonally due in theaters? funny, but im not really laughing :)Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: coolAvatar Imagecallicott3 says: @Gemma Sparks....I guess you'd have to "chose your battles"! LOL I hope it's right....four days, after my birthday!!!!!Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: I would love for WB to follow Disney's 3-disc release format: Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Copy. That would be awesome.Avatar ImageHROAR Mudblood Proud says: They should! It's the least they can do for making us wait so long, I think.Avatar Imagelisajean65 says: Awesome! I'm going to Amazon right now!Avatar ImageTamyris says: Oh God Dont tell me about the DVD I am still dying to see the film in the theaters! The film is just so far away! July,why July? The capitalism is really cruel!Avatar Imageoldenoughtoknowbetter says: Just in time for Christmas... now my kids will know what to get for me!Avatar ImageGraymayne says: HBP DVD out for Christmas! You do surprise me!! (heavy sarcasm).Avatar ImageDilltheMuggle says: Ya I figured it would be out before Christmas time. But a release this would be really awesome.Avatar ImageLifeInAPizzaBox says: Super Awesome early Hanuka Gift!!!!! yayAvatar Imagejoelface says: Haha, suffer New Moon! Nah, I'm just excited to see HBP at all - I already know it's going to be a superior movie in every aspect compared to anything the Twilight people can produce...Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: That's wierd...does it normallly take that long for a dvd to come out?Avatar Imagemouse68 says: It's perfectly normal. Most big releases come out four months after the release of the film in the cinema.Avatar Imagejessh324 says: Same day New Moon is released! Awesome!Avatar Imagehaha123 says: hey does anyone know how long the half blood prince movie is because like for once i wish the movie director makes it atleast 2 and 1/2 hours for the harry potter fans out there cause as far as length of movie goes it's been dissapointing Avatar ImageAugury Feather says: That will be amazing! *crosses fingers*Avatar ImageRunwild101 says: Need it, want it, gotta have it!! I need to continue to increase my collection. But I know I'm going to buy the entire collection once all the movies are out on Blu-Ray....UGH!!Avatar Imageweasleyalltheway says: okay good. i heard somewhere that WB was ONLY releasing all of their movies on blue-ray, and that would suck cause i don't and will not likely own one in the near future. nobody i know has one, and maybe they'll be like DVD players and get less exppensive, but that takes YEARS. Avatar Imagebutterbeer bottle says: Yay! I hope the DVD does come out then, the earlier the better. But I'd doubt I'd wait for somebody to give it to me for Christmas. Maybe I can get my parents to buy it for me as an early Christmas present.Avatar ImageCatherine says: oh i hope its true! its so close to bithday! Avatar Imageswimmersgirl says: anytime during 2009, i'll gladly take :D potter2005-- a sneak peak of DH would be sooooo amazingg <3Avatar Imageashes2phoenix says: That would be so cool if it was true. :DAvatar Imagedragonsmaidan says: That would be awesome if it came out like four months after the movie was released.Avatar Imagejoeys_mommy says: That would Be Awesome! I Wish the Movie was out NOW!Avatar Imageshellybasson says: :)Avatar Imagequoddy says: MAI BERTHDAY?! *shiney eyed* Just as long as everyone in the world doesn't go buy it for me! xDDAvatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: WOW That would be so awesome and just one day before New moon. how interesting! Avatar Imagemish149 says: Talk of release of the DVD and it hasn't even come out yet =P Still.... EXCITEMENT!!Avatar Imagekylee says: Am I the only one whos looking at this as a way to once and for all put an end to all the stupid harry potter vs. twilight rumors? If the dvd is really coming out the day before new moon is released we will be able to see who is more popular and who will make more money. Obviously Hp is better, but its nice rubbing it in their faces =)Avatar Imageanukritis says: Ye!!! that's 3 days after my birthday!!Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Cool! If it is the right date, I'll be more excited about this that New Moon hahahaha!Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Crossing my fingers :DAvatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: @Gemma Sparks. I think the release of New Moon is the 17th of July. I'm not sure, but sorry if I'm wrong. Twilight is attempting to sabotage HP! I can't wait for the DVD. Forget Xmas lists. I'm buying it the day it comes out!Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: It is still a bit early to be hearing about this. This date will probably change.Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: Please let it come out!!! Oh wait ... darn not close to any b-days Nooooooooooooooooooo Please let the date change ...wait What am i saying???????!!!!!!!Avatar Imagebadger666 says: I'll believe it when I have the DVD in my hands. I'm never going to trust any HP release dates again, sigh. It will probably come out in December like OotP did.Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Aw, yeah.Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: I hope it comes out soon. We'll all go the the movie and by the disk anyway! Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Wow, if it's going to be released in november, that would be a lot sooner than we got OotP!Avatar ImageVioletPhoenix says: That would be so cool! The sooner the better. They will probably change the date around a few times, just to make sure they can make enough money off its he heAvatar ImageGobbledygook says: I'M so asking for this for my B-day!!!Avatar ImageMiss Freewind says: I know that some are excited, but I am just more pissed off. WB delays the movie release for theaters almost a year (for no reason other then to try to make more money) and then we still have to wait months more for the DVD. What has WB been doing during all this time? Could they have not had all this DVD stuff prepared months ago and ready for shortly after the theatrical release? *Note to WB- The way you have treated the fans has caused me to limit the money I will be spending HP movies and their related items (but I will make sure to see New Moon multiple times because they are distributed by Summit Entertainment).*Avatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: that's my second last day of school... EVER!!! Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I would love to have it before Christmas!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: cant wait!!!!!!!!!! yay just in time 4 xmas!!!! but i think i may buy it be4 xmas. hehe!!!!!!!!! i cannot wait for New Moon. dont judge me!! i've been a huuuuuuge harry potter fan ever since i was like 5 or 6!! if its one day before new moon then it like 2days of my favourite things ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hehe!!!!Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: They would be fools not to make it available for December. I want it I want it I want it! lol, we haven't even seen the thing yet...Avatar ImageHeavenly_Horcrux says: That would be so cool if we do!Avatar ImageJersey says: Wow thats a pretty quick release on DVD. The movie will be barely out of the theater. Their greed knows no boundsAvatar ImageDragomir Despard says: pumpedAvatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: Sweet! it will comeout before new moon. HE HE! I think we should wait to start counting down to the DVD release until the movie comes out!! :9Avatar Imageiconshero says: AWESOME if its true!Avatar Imagejessica911jc says: I really hope this is true. Because my friend is going to want is for her birthday and well that is what all get her and also that I will want to watch it again one it comes out.Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: Its showing on July then the DVD is due on on November?? WHY so long?? can't they make it like, for 2-3 months?? please.... :)Avatar ImageEvanna Lynch says: Waiting... waiting... I can't stand it, it better be out NOW!!!Avatar Imageemerald_eyes910 says: whoah if its coming out then, then you wont be able to find it anywhere cuz of the Christmas season.. Everyone will want it for Christmas, like me :)Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: It makes sense they would release it before Christmas for extra sales.
