Earlier this year we reported that Amazon France was offering a limited “Prestige edition” collection of Harry Potter DVDs housed in a special container set at the base of a replica of Hogwarts. Today, the French Amazon website has been updated with the news that this set containing DVDs of all six Harry Potter films, including Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will be released on November 16, 2009. Also the regular editions of the discs, Standard, Blu-Ray, Double DVD (note: these show different cover art than the UK editions released last week) contain November 18th and a November 25th release date. As readers will recall, the latest reports had a HBP DVD release date of December 8th here in the US, so we do not know if this means we may seen a bumped up release date for the disc, why there are so many different dates for the French release of Half-Blood Prince DVDs, or what all this may mean. We are trying to learn more and will update when we can.

The Prestige collection of French language Harry Potter DVDs appears to contain the Noble Collection replica of Hogwarts (or something quite like it), along with a velvet drawer with slots for all the DVDs, including two spots for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows DVDs. It is currently available for pre-order in Standard and Blu-ray formats.

Thanks Tracy!

Avatar ImageLulubelleI says: Yeah, first! This thing looks so awesome. Christmas present. I hope.Avatar ImageLulubelleI says: oops, didn't notice that it is French. Still pretty cool, though.Avatar Imagebiggestharrypotterfan says: i can't wait! it looks amazing.Avatar Imagejaiboi2 says: ok are you lot nuts why would you bother buying a dvd boxset before the final films have finished i mean come on whats the point in having 4 or 5 dets of the same movie. why not just wait till the special extended 7 year boxset comes out. you know that your only feeding the greedy bosses at warner bros more money thats the only reason they bring out a boxset every year coz of dumb people go out and buy them again and again, use ya brains people just wait for the special extended editions to come out once the films are over you know there gonna bring a super delux special extended version of all the films and do wht they did with lord of the rings and that is to probabley to put all the deleted scenes back in and also scenes that they filmed and didnt make it into the deleted scenes section on previously seen hary potter dvds. be smart guy dont go nuts just wait a bit longer. why buy the bosses another mansion or ferrarhi make them greedy gits wait to for there money. let em wait till the bring out the best boxset ever with every film included and all the bits that were cut to be in it. who agrees with me i think it makes perfect sense.Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: WOW THIS IS AMAZING! I wonder if this will be available in different countries.Avatar ImageBlatcher914 says: I am going to wait too ,but it will certainly take some willpower, if I see anymore awesome sets like this french one. Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Hmm...I will wait until extended editions of all eight films are released. Now that will certainly be worth my money.Avatar ImagetheREALGinnyWeasley says: OH MY GOD I WANT IT!!!!!! Bet you it will cost like 300 dollars though...... *tears*Avatar Imageevannaa says: Hm, I think it doesn't really make sense to buy a set of only 6 of the 8 movies. The Hogwarts replica is really cool, though.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Oui Oui!!!Avatar ImageHP578 says: This isn't bad even though its a box set it has two empty slots for when DH comes out on DVD. Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Wow, I wish I had the money! The castle looks amazing! But I'm just going to get a set after all the movies come out. Why get 1-6 when there will most likely be a 1-8 after all this is over?Avatar ImageCatherine says: wow! that is so cool!!!!! but im going to wait for the final films! i like the new HBP covers for the dvds! so mujch better than the previous ones!Avatar Imagegingersnap188 says: it sounds amazing!Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: *faints* Its beatiful! I needs it... I wants it, my precious! Ignore my Gollum reference.Avatar ImageDawna says: It is very cool looking, and I like the idea of the extra slots for the 2 DH movies. But I think I will also wait for the exteneded collector's edition before I buy another collection. I will buy HBP in the meantime, though!Avatar Imageparselmouth94 says: Oh I want it but its French... I can speak some French, but I can't understand it... I guess I should wait until they are all out in an extended boxed set and buy that.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Amazing set with the Hogwarts castle but I still don't get why they are releasing these sets before the last movies are even out yet?! I, like many people, are just going to wait until all the movies are released before I get a set like that. Avatar Imageaxlgirl says: Omg - that display box is amazing!!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Well of course I'm in the waiting-til-all-8-are-out-before-buying-a-box-set camp. (Til all 8 are out, that still sounds weird) But this set is incredible, I'd wait til I had a permanent residence before buying, I'd hate to have to move that around every year. On the DVD release side of things it might like OOTP again where we get it over here in November and US gets it in December. Which I'm really hoping for, I can't be the only person who acquaints November with Harry PotterAvatar Imagehepburn says: Oooh! I'm French but I won't buy it because I want to wait until the last movie comes out. Otherwise, what's the point?Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: great!Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: OMG how cool i wish i would come out here in the US at the same time.Avatar Imagejaiboi2 says: i rest my case you lot need ya heads seeing to this is just another ploy to fill the big bosses at warner bros pockets. use ya brains wait till the final box set comes out it will have more to it and all the deleted scenes will be included. whats the point in having 4 versions of the same movies total waste of mone save ya cash and wait for the movies to finish then buy the dvd boxset 1-8. has anyone got brains on this site.Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: the castle is very nice but I would rather have all the DVDsAvatar Imagedobbyis_free says: this is soo cool, but i'm waiting for the seventh edition one :)Avatar ImageLos_Boy says: First, I am assuming that these discs are the French Region which means they WILL NOT play in England or the U.S. If I knew how much that fr means in American Dollars I might be tempted to get it anyway since it does have those two empty slots and I could just put my US version in and take out the French discs and get rid of them. But, how do we know that expected big deluxe extended, etc, set won't be on more than one disc, with all the extras they will add in. So those big sets may not fit. It's a damning thing. I will wait and see. But I do love the look of this box and castle and it even has a clear plastic display case lid to protect as well. It's an amazing package and I am willing to be the US version will be nowhere near this. Avatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: I agree with jaiboi2. I have the first two for VHS, and the first five for DVD, and that's it. I'm waiting for the "Special Magical Deluxe Extended OMGLYKESRSLY" Editions to come out before buying a boxset of all of the movies.Avatar Imagesholstom says: thats cool, althoguh im sure after DH part 2 there will be something betterAvatar ImageH.P.2009 says: would this be something available for U.S. eventually? Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: Ok i want that good thing i'm taking french at school maybe if i bought that i would learn some french from the movie i hope there is english subtitles@@Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: does anyone know how much that would cost in us dollors?? Avatar ImageBad-Muggle says: Way cool, but I'll wait until all the films are out. And only if they do this for the Blu-Ray edition. Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I hope they do something like that for when all the movies come out on DVD. Avatar Imageplacebowiz says: wowAvatar Imagemini bagel says: Looks great. A replica of Hogwarts, what a great idea! Can't wait to get all of them on DVD.Avatar Imagefriendofblob says: *wishes more than her name was french* *suddenly decides to learn french so she can get it because it's than cool and beatiful*Avatar Imageearyn says: OMG that looks awesome! I hope we will get something like this in the US.Avatar Imageselene21 says: looks great, but I think I'll wait until DH comes outAvatar ImageRaeWhit says: Oooo, if you're really going to go for the French coffret intégrale, be aware that these are Zone 2 DVDs, and if you're in the U.S, you can't play them unless you have a multi-zone configured player.Avatar ImageFelixMarauder says: You know, this is a beautiful box set. I understand everyone's point in waiting for the final films to come out and for them to do special editions. However, notice at the end of the article it mentions that there's also a place for the two Deathly Hallows to be placed when they come out. Looking forward to the special features available on future special sets is definately exciting but I really hope they release a set much like this in the US after all the movies are out. It is a beautiful collector's piece!Avatar ImageTheGriff says: wow thats pretty cool. To all those people saying that we are paying greedy warner brothers, you cannot deny a harry potter fan things like this! They'll just end up getting this and the deluxe full box set at the end as well :P Plus if you give money to warner brothers, they will put more money into the harry potter films and merchandise which is why you can get some really cool stuff and the films are so good. Avatar ImageHBPFan says: would rather wait till they're all out.Avatar Imageele0206 says: Oh god....it's absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hogwarts castle!!! Gotta have it.Avatar ImageFifi says: Amazing!!!!!!!! : DAvatar Imagehermionenluna says: that is so awesome!!Avatar ImageMrs.Brisby says: That's quite a fancy box there. :) Very nice.Avatar Imagemjkalldaway says: i'm probably going to buy the movies 1-8 set, although this sounds amazing tooAvatar Imagepolyjusposhun says: I have to admit, that is an interesting way to display the DVDs. However, I am not (willpower, willpower, willpower) buying any more box sets until the final, final film. I did get the trunk set issued in US before. It is too bad they probably will not issue holders that would fit that trunk for HBP and the 2 final films. If you remove the bookmarks that came with it, it seems like there is room for other holders.Avatar ImageNobbyPotter says: Just want to say that the version dubbed in Québec is way better then the French version, voice-wise and everything. I've seen the French trailer and they say Drago Malfoy in English not Malefoy like in the books which is how it is prounounced in the Québec version. Also we pronounce Grangé "à la française" not Granger "à l'anglaise". For those who are worried, it is not dubbed in "québécois" but in international French, no Québec accent, no French accent, just plain French.Avatar Imagedcsbelle says: Yeah, it looks pretty and all but you KNOW there will be another set after all eight films have been released. How many times do they expect us to buy the same movies?Avatar ImageProsophules says: I'm going to wait until all the films are released. I think they are going to come up with something even nicer.Avatar Imagelonerwolfygirl says: That's freaking amazing...I want one!Avatar Imageda_member0808 says: that is sooo freaking aweseome!!!! i so wish i could buy that :( Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: omygodddddddd! that is so amazing! i want it! but i feel terrible buying the box sets without th last 2 moviessss! holy craappp its so amazing, i wonder if they would do something like this for all 8??!Avatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahaAvatar ImageJananae says: How epic is that? :PAvatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awesum!!Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Looks cool. But I'd rather wait until the 7 year ultimate edition boxset comes out!! :DAvatar Imagenesserz says: I'm so so definitely waiting for HD2 to come out, cant wait to see what they will come up with XDAvatar Imagetayler18 says: oho, lucky french
