Posted by SueTLC

A quick follow today regarding extended editions of the Harry Potter films coming to DVD. Rope of Silicon is now reporting that an extended edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets has been rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America. This follows earlier news that an extended edition of Sorcerer’s Stone was finally to be released on DVD. Earlier reports also had word that WB was going to release extended editions of all of the Harry Potter films on DVD very soon, however firm confirmation on an actual release date for these have not yet been released.

Thanks to Rope of Silicon and Matt!

Avatar Imagegizzmogeek says: You know, by the time is all said and done, I'm going to end up owning about 6 complete sets of the movies at this rate. Since I own a number of the books in different formats, I guess I really can't complain. Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy! awesum! 2nd comment!Avatar Imageaxlgirl says: Yay! Bring it on! =DAvatar ImageDumbles4ever says: I have VHS of 1 & 2 DVD of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Bluray of 1 & 3 (had free hP6 coupons) AND NOW EXTENDED blurays. And once thats done you can bet I'll have the Ultimate Complete Collector Set too.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy! awesum! 2nd comment!Avatar Imagemarymackie says: Is this going to be the one we see on ABC Family, extended version? I can't imagine there are any more leftover clips around!! Avatar Imagelexuslovesweasleys says: its going to be great to be able to see it with out having to watch it on abc family Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Well seein as I'm in the UK and don't get ABC Family I'm over the moon at this! Genius, the 1st 2 will definitly be out this Christmas. Mark my wordsAvatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: marymackie, you'd be surprised! They still have the original rolls of film that contain all of the outtakes, bloopers, and uncut scenes. Basically, everything that was on the script was filmed, although the final cut was a lot shorter. For example, Matthew Lewis confirmed a while ago that they filmed the entire ministry sequence from the book (including the brain room). But as we all know, they cut nearly everything out in the final cut. If they make a true-to-the-book extended edition of OoTP, they will likely include that scene. I'm looking forward to Peeves in PS/SS! I'm pretty sure they added him originally, right? But they cut him out?Avatar ImageBritski says: I really hope that there is a lot more content in each of the films that will be added to these extended versions! Avatar ImageFereverto says: My Lord! I'm going to have a fortune tied up in HP DVD's. Of course, that was WB's plan all along. ;pAvatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: I wonder how much will be added in? I think it would be cool if Peeves was in them (Britski's comment). I hope they do re-release extended versions for all of them, I would love to get Half-Blood Prince. I heard they cut out a lot from that one.Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Wow I want to buy one.Avatar Imagehpfan20 says: I'm just going to wait until they have the complete set of the Extended Versions out. That way i'm not buying a million different versions. I would love to buy these now but i can't quite justify getting them until they have Extended Versions for all of them in an Ultimate Set. :)Avatar ImageRhiannon7 says: Whhoooo-hoooo! I hope they are released for Christmas!Avatar Imagebeewell says: I am going to get this. Doesn't matter that at the end I have various sets of the regular or Blue Ray/HD. I can't wait until this one comes out. Hopefully at the end all of them will be extended versions. Love watching them on ABC Family but trying to record them in their extended versions is a nightmare when trying not to record the commercials.Avatar ImageHydrus says: So I should probably start seriously considering that Blu-ray player now, I guess.Avatar ImageBookwormjules says: I'm going to wait untill the have all 7 movies out, because they'll release a super special magical edition of Harry Potter, with never seen before extended scenes and bla bla bla.Avatar ImageKissa says: I am SO excited for this, words can't even begin to describe it! We have no channels that airs the extended versions here in Norway such as ABC Family does in the US, so I'm just over the top with excitement! :DAvatar ImageHPNAIV says: I totally agree with hpfan20{ROAR}. I'm just going to wait until they have a whole set out, that way I won't have mulitple DVDs... although that'd be nice. But money doesn't grow on trees...Avatar ImageFresca says: I would eally like the extended DVD's with deleted scenes on them, but would prefer to get all the movies in a set, instead of buying them piece-meal.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: That's cool! I think I'm going to wait though to buy the extended editions of the movies until they are all out... so I can buy some kind of collector's set since I know they are going to make one. lol :)Avatar Imagevespasian68967 says: I fear to look but I cannot turn away from buying them. Guess I'll need to get a Blu-Ray player too.Avatar ImageNearlyHeadlessNicole says: EFF. NO WAY!Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: Cant wait, guna get all of them Avatar ImageLunabelle7 says: Yes! I'm looking forward to seeing this. It kind of makes me sorry that I (finally) completed my DVD collection this year. If I'd waited, then I wouldn't have to feel strange about buying two editions of the same movie...but I have to be honest with myself and say that there's a good chance I'll buy the extendeds, anyway.Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: Yay, I love, love, love the first and second movies so this is really good news! =DAvatar ImagePompleMoose says: Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh, I can't wait for ALL of them to come out. That will be a happy part of life.Avatar ImageLemonFaerie says: Oh, I hope it's sooooooonnn! We've waited long enough, WB!Avatar ImageSmonocco says: I'm getting it, although I wish they didn't have to release so many different versionsAvatar Imageccking says: I HOPE THEY'RE RELEASED BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!! ohhmyygodd , I am soo happy i've got something to look forward too :)Avatar ImageCalamity Jamie says: It's unfair to wait until fans have bought one version of a film before releasing a more desirable one. I'm going to wait now, to get the last three films, until the extended versions are available. Fans have nothing near the income of the studio executive who play this sorts of games.Avatar Imageplacebowiz says: YAY!Avatar Imagescallenger says: I wonder if the new DVDs/BLU RAYS will have both versions of the film in the set together? You know, by using seamless branching like other DVDs use for different cuts of films (for example: the Alien films, the rated/unrated versions of many DVDs these days, the lmited Edition versions of Lord of the Rings, etc).Avatar ImageLulubelleI says: I can't wait to get them.Avatar ImageBlatcher914 says: I'm so torn I want the extended version instant gratification, but I know I'll regret it when the shiny new, all seven amazing fantastic never before seen filled, documentary stuffed insanity that will be the deluxe set.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: cool i cant wait!!!!Avatar Imagestregs12 says: sweetAvatar Imagelittlefurlo3 says: since i own like 3 sets of the books, it makes since that i am going to own a couple copies of the movie too, but still... i spend so much money on harry potter stuff...Avatar Imagediablitaroja says: They had it listed on Amazon a while back...Avatar ImageLexitheAuror says: I will probably wait until they all come out before buying them. I still only own SS & CoS on VHS, though, so I could get these two when they come out without feeling guilty of wasting money, right? Avatar ImageHermyGrnger says: AHHH YES!!! Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I cannot wait for these to be released. For ages I have imagined the opportunities that being able to view the deleted scenes, as integrated in the original film, would bring!Avatar Imagedeadtree says: argh,I guess I'll wait for them to release a box set-- I can't afford to keep buying all these! But then again, I say that now. As soon as we find out what specifically is in the extended scenes I'm sure I'll buy them ^^;Avatar ImageEeyore says: Oh, I really hope they release extended versions of all of them. I love watching the longer versions of the first two on ABC Family, and would love to see the deleted scenes in GOF and OP and HBP. I remember the kids talked about how much fun it was to film the DADA boggart scene with Lupin and Snape, but the things they talked about were mostly absent in the film. I hadn't heard they filmed more of the ministry stuff for OP. I hope so. And I hope there are more scenes with Kreacher. What they showed was good, but not enough.Avatar Imagealegria35 says: I'm hoping that the extended editions are really extended, not just a scene or two added to the film... Avatar ImageMikaMaxwell says: Oh my god, that means my second favorite of the films, Prizoner of Azkaban, is next on the list! Pleeeaaasssse let them release an extended cut...Avatar ImageHBPFan says: wow, sounds excellent! Really want to see it!!Avatar ImageHeartbreakDX says: NO WAY!!! THAT'S EPICQAvatar ImageScarStruck says: AWESOMENESS!Avatar ImageDawna says: sweet!Avatar ImageGranger10 says: oooo!!!!!!!!!!! thats sounds so great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I going to buy one for sure!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageAsta says: Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Avatar ImageAsta says: When are they releasing it?? I can't wait for it. I'll buy one...Avatar ImageAsta says: When are they releasing it?? I can't wait for it. I'll buy one...Avatar Imagebudb says: I apologize for not remembering who first pointed this out, about a month ago: the words being used by HP/WB executives are "Ultimate" collection and "Extended" collection....its not yet clear if these are one and the same, or two different sets..... In the past, some films have been re-released in multiple versions, "the director's cut", the "extended version", and so on. I don't expect that to happen but we should recognize it as a possibility Since we have a release date for HBP, I would guess that these re-releases will become available late spring or early summer 2010 as part of the run up publicity to the release of DH 1. Avatar Imageane_drew says: I hope they're not just adding the deleted scenes but actual scenes we haven't seen anywhere else.Avatar Imageshellybasson says: I hate this. Why would I want to have two copies of each film? Why not sell the extended editions in the first place! The answer: MOOLA!!Avatar Imagelizziebennett says: very true shellymione. i mean how many people on this very site have said that they already own versions, will buy the extended versions, and then will buy the collectors set?! It's a tremendous source of money. I do have to wonder though whether there is also an element of time. Maybe it just takes longer to seem the movie back together once its been edited to bits for the big screen. Even so I hardly think it would take 10 years, which is practically how long its been since the first movie. I do hope its something more than the ABC version. Though its fabulous to watch, there's a sense of been there, done that.Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Here's hoping they put some more stuff in that's true to the books. God, I'm going to have soooo many Harry Potter DVDs/videos!! YAY!! I guess I can't really complain! :)Avatar ImagechrisbDTM says: yayAvatar Imagecghambright says: YES!!! I can't wait to buy it!!! I hope they're doing the same with Sorcerer's Stone! :DAvatar ImageFifi says: Cool!! That's absolutely gr8t!!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: It sure is about time!Avatar ImagetaystarHP says: I am so getting them. DUH!Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: I wonder if these will be the final editions to be released for these movies? I hate buying multiple copies!Avatar Imagehp29 says: This sounds really aweomse, I can't wait to buy one and see what it's all about :) Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: This is exciting!Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Well it's about time. Squee!Avatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imageearyn says: It's like Lord of the Rings all over again; I have 3 copies of all three movies. But I guess this is what being a fan is all about : )Avatar ImageTheGriff says: I'm gonna end up with loads of copies of Harry Potter haha. Not that i'm complaining. I'm really excited for the extended editions, one of my favourite scenes in the first film was a deleted scene where Neville gets his legs locked together by Malfoy and comes hopping into the great hall haha. I hope thats in the extended edition. Avatar Imagehelenlonergan says: i can't wait hope first 2 are out before christmas {uk} pritty sure they will do the rest in the same format not and personal i am looking forward to see what they cut perticually from half blood prince i though there was lods of stuff miss that is need for the last filmsAvatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: I want these! But I'm sure my parents won't agree I need more than one edition...Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: that is so Cool!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageFire Wings says: That would be so cool, but it totally reminds me of Lord of the Rings....Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: Oooh, extended editions<3. Hope I save up money..Avatar ImageJaneMarple9 says: I'd like to have the exteneded editions :-)Avatar ImagexAnaheyy says: YAY ! more to love ♥Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: eeeeeeeeeeee... Idk... maybe I should wait for the "ultimate addition" Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: Dear Santa... I would like one of these please!!! :DAvatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: um, do we have any word on the price???Avatar Imagehrslvr529 says: Thank God!!! I've been wanting to watch the extended versions for a long time!Avatar Imageenchantedsocks says: I really hope Warner Bros doesn't do a Disney and only release these for a short amount of time and then pull them from stock. Like others here I would like to wait until the final, ultimate collectors edition DVDs of all 8 films are released.Avatar ImageCody says: Hopefully they will release extended Blu-Rays too.. Should of known as soon as I bought the series on blu-ray they'd come out with extended versions.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: yay! i am excitedAvatar Imageccking says: I haven't gotten around to getting these yet !!!!Avatar Imageccking says: I haven't gotten around to getting these yet !!!!Avatar Imageccking says: I haven't gotten around to getting these yet !!!!Avatar Imageccking says: I haven't gotten around to getting these yet !!!!Avatar Imageccking says: I haven't gotten around to getting these yet !!!!Avatar Imageccking says: I haven't gotten around to getting these yet !!!!Avatar Imageccking says: I haven't gotten around to getting these yet !!!!
