Posted by John Admin

Home Media Magazine is reporting that the following two installments of the Harry Potter: Ultimate Edition DVDs will be released on June 14, 2011.

“Order of the Phoenix” and “Half-Blood Prince” are the next two films to receive the Ultimate Edition treatment just a month before the final film, “Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” is released in cinemas.

Pre-orders are expected to begin on May 10. The two-disc Blu-ray set will have a retail price of $49.99 while the DVD versions will be $39.92.

Just like the previous Ultimate Edition releases:

Each ultimate edition has a new hour of the “Creating the World of Harry Potter” documentary series, which will total to eight hours when completed. Additionally the sets include a digital copy of the film, more than four hours of special features and such collectibles as a 44-page photo book, limited edition character cards and a lenticular card.

But I think I'm going to wait until all of them are in one big box set with loads of special features (even though I've got the first 6 already).Avatar ImageExpectoPatronum512 says: sweet! XDAvatar ImageCDR says: Great!!!Avatar Imagemistypaws5 says: YES THAT IS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY!!!Avatar Imagemistypaws5 says: YES THAT IS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY!!!Avatar Imagemistypaws5 says: YES THAT IS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY!!!Avatar Imagemolly43 says: Wow! Great. I already have 1-4 and love them. Well I'm waiting for my son to come back to look at 3 and 4, but 1 and two were great. You get great pictures and a book with them. I hope the others are as nice. I like the packaging. Avatar Imagemolly43 says: So will there be two ultimat editions for DH?Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: This is a fantastic news.I can't wait to get them!!!Avatar ImageButterfly_Boy says: The Ultimate Editions are very good. molly43, I would think there'll be an Ultimate Edition for each of the Deathly Hallows films.Avatar ImageNoz says: And while movies 5 and 6 are announced in the US, we're still waiting for the release of movies 3 and 4, here in France... Come on Warner Bros, move your *ss and think about Europe a little !!Avatar ImageBeazle says: As ever - we are treated with distain. No extended cuts !!!!!!! Compare the way we are treated to the LOTR care, respect and love for its core fans. We obviously do not deserve fully intergrated extended cuts.Avatar ImageAnderja says: Think i will wait and hope the complete box set includes the extended editions. Was not happy with year 3 and 4 came out and did not have the extended versions like year 1 and 2 did.Avatar ImageAnderja says: Think i will wait and hope the complete box set includes the extended editions. Was not happy when year 3 and 4 came out and did not have the extended versions like year 1 and 2 did.Avatar ImageGermines says: mhh I have a question: is it true, that the 3th and 4th editions didnt have the deleted scenes put into movie 3+4 like it had been with the first two Editions? thats what I enjoyed about the first two ultimate editions the most (and why I havent bought the 3+4 yet) read that somewhere :/ its kinda sad if its true I would loove to see the Snape+Karkaroff chat and the Trelawney eating desaster aaand the *In Noctem* Scene from HBP <3 mhh guess they will have the SuperMerlinLike-Edition with all 8 movies and all uncut etc out anyway.. Maybe I should wait till then ahhh my impatience is killin me^^Avatar Imagehpfanaticfan2011 says: haha how convenient, that's the day before my birthday =DAvatar Imagerettophantom says: No Extended Cuts AGAIN?! But David Yates SAID he shot like and extra hour of footage for Order of the Phoenix! Including McGonagall getting cursed! So WHY is there no Extended? This is ridiculous. Avatar ImageSindi says: Awesome! I wish I could get them... better get to work x) Avatar ImageEmmaline10248 says: perfect i cant wait!!!!Avatar ImageGene L. says: Awesome, though why is Deathly Hallows still not out yet?Avatar Imagebudb says: Actually, unless they will be extended versions, or include more deleted/unused scenes, I will pass. Already have the first two-disk release, and as much as I might enjoy the "creating the world" bits, its not worth $39 for one hour of an extra to me to essentially get what I already have. I was so disappointed GoF "ultimate" didn't include an extended version that I returned it to amazon. Avatar Imagebudb says: Gene Lin, DH 1 comes out in April here in US. And rettophantom is right, Yates has said there was a lot of unused footage from OotP.Avatar ImageGreen says: I loved the first two ultimate editions but.... 3 and 4 are not the same, they do not have the book, collector cards or extended versions of the movies, the reason I wanted them in the first place...Extremely disappointed indeed... so I didn't buy 3 and 4 but will definitely buy 5 and 6 as it looks as though they are the same as 1 and 2... Yay. Avatar Imagecattyrae says: why arent these coming out in australia? i have 1 and 2 but cant get 3 and 4. whats going on? Avatar ImageFiniteincantatum says: OH MY GOSHH I WANT THEM ALL :))Avatar Imagetwilightdew says: I asked my husband for the Ultimate Edition of the first film for Christmas but he bought the 2nd one instead (and be honest, I really liked the first film a lot more than the 2nd.) At this point I'm going to do what others have said and wait until all of the films have been released before I worry about special editions. I'm guessing that at some point down the road they are going to release some sort of Expanded Mega Fan Collection, probably housed in something that looks like Harry's truck, just like they did for the books. Avatar ImageSEHAL says: DEATH IS BACK CANT WAIT Avatar Imagemolly43 says: Wait a minute. Now that I'm hearing all this about ultimate editions 3 and 4 I'll have to look at my boxes (blue ray editions). Ultimate edition 3 says it includes movie says includes movie and 4 hours of special features, 48 pg photo bk w/rare images from yers 1-7, yr 3 lenticular card (two in a series and Edition 4)says it includes 5 hours of special features, 44 pg photo bk w/rare images from yrs 1-7; yr 4 lenticular card; both editions include a bonus digital copy of that expires oct 17, 2011. I haven't opened it yet (still waiting for my son to look at it w/me) and don't know what the special features are. But even knowing tht there is no extended versions I'm still happy with it for all of the other features they contain and the way the package looks. I'm also glad you guys gave me the "heads up" on it not being there. I won't be so disappointed when I open them. You guys are really great. I’m off to wk now will ck back with the site tomorrow.Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Jumpin on the how-dare-they-not-have-UK-versions bandwagon here: seriously we've had no indication of them coming. What the heck are you at Heyman?Avatar ImageLoonyLuna4 says: AWESOME!!! I can't wait Order of the Phoenix is my favourite film of all time! are there UK editions???Avatar ImageAgrippa1 says: Sweet! I thought we'd have to wait until Christmas! Love the first 4, even if 3 & 4 didn't have the extended version with all the deleted scenes in place like 1 & 2. I recorded Goblet of Fire from TV so I'd have the extended scenes in place. But I love all the great stuff in these ultimate editions!Avatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: I have the double-disc edition of all the saga movies!! I want the 7thAvatar Imagekatherine102678 says: I can't wait!Avatar ImageTarsieS says: The last two sets have been released in Late November/early December. I wonder with this early release of 5 & 6 if that means 7 & 8 will then be released late this year/early next year? ***Rubbing hands in anticipation***Avatar Imagehewy says: Molly43, I just checked my blue-ray Ultimate editions of 3 & 4 and the book and the cards are there. Did the person who said they weren't buy them used or already opened? I do not think you will be disappointed. Am waiting for 5 & 6 but like everyone else was truly disappointed that the deleted scenes and additional footage were not added. Surely by now these numbskulls at WB realize that we diehard fans want it all and we want it NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagemolly43 says: That's righ hewy. We want it all.Avatar Imagekmac23va says: Did anyone look at the cover of OOTP's ultimate edition? They used the backdrop of the opening broom ride to #12, but instead of the guard it's the Ministry Six. So yes, we have Hermione Granger riding a broom with a bad mo-fo look on her face (luckily for Rupert the later covers have a serious looking Ron...remember the POA original cover where Harry and Hermione looked like buttkickers and Ron looked freaked?). But I should say Ministry FIVE...the Trio are there, Neville's in the bottom background, and far in the top background is Luna...no Ginny though! I could make a joke or twenty here, but I won't. ;) I noticed Ron got the closer foreground to Harry in the HBP UE cover too...first time in awhile for that.
