The DVD and Blu-ray Ultimate Editions of “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” will be released on October 19th. The Ultimate Editions, which have already been released for the first two Harry Potter movies, feature expansive looks at the films. Each Ultimate Edition goes in-depth on a certain aspect of the Harry Potter movies, and the themes for the “Prisoner of Azkaban” and “Goblet of Fire” Ultimate Editions are “Creatures” and “Sound & Music”:

Creating the World of Harry Potter Part 3: Creatures
Never-before-seen footage of the Creature Shop! Explore never revealed
concept drawings, interviews with creators who describe the quest to
create real creatures with emotional power to move the adventure
forward. Go behind the scenes with Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and
Emma Watson as they interact with a marvelous menagerie from magnificent
Buckbeak to malevolent Dementors. Watch creatures develop from page to
sketch to model to screen. Discover how actors are transformed from
humans to rats and werewolves. Witness Voldemort’s evolution from
grotesque, infant-like creature to the Darkest Force of all.

Creating the World of Harry Potter Part 4: Sound & Music
For the first time, discover how musical themes for Harry, Hedwig, Luna
and Lord Voldemort define each character’s identity. Learn how sound
effects experts create the crunch of footsteps on snow and the whoosh of
a flying broomstick. Visit recording studios and see how each composer
brings his orchestral vision to the films. Plunge into fun as Daniel
gets the sound of underwater. Feel the magic as music is added to a
scene, intensifying the emotion and steering the story.

In addition, each Ultimate Edition comes with a photo book, and two “collectible character cards.” You can read more about what comes with the “Prisoner of Azkaban” and “Goblet of Fire” Ultimate Editions here.
