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!

Way cool, but I’ll wait until all the films are out. And only if they do this for the Blu-Ray edition.

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.

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!

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.
