Followup: December 29th Last Day WB will Ship Current Harrry Potter Film Titles

Home Video / DVD

In a followup to Leaky's September 20th news that Warner Bros. would cease shipment of all eight "Harry Potter" films on BluRay and DVD starting December 29th, Deadline.com has posted a snippet containing further information about the decision.  They report:

"[Warner Bros. will stop] shipping all Harry Potter theatrical film titles (including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ – Part 2, and Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection) as of December 29, 2011 (moratorium does not include digital – Electronic Sell-Through & VOD – or games).
This means that following the November 11th (December 2nd in the UK) release of these two new editions, fans of the series will have little over one month to purchase their copy of the eight film collection.  Fans, however, will still be able to purchase digital copies of the films through their preferred online medium.

Thanks to all who emailed!

This is riddikulus. They are only doing this to increase holiday sales and then sell the special editions way over priced in a year after we’ve all bought the non-special editions. :P

According to MuggleNet’s podcast, there will be another new boxed set available for purchase next year. I have all of the movies on DVD or Blu Ray as I have bought each one as it is released. If you don’t have the movies, WB has them on sale for VERY affordable prices. It seems to me that they have given us all plenty of time to buy the movies & are going to give us another opportunity when they release the new boxed set again in 2012.

I do agree that WB is being a little stupid, but personley, I’m not worrying, as I own all of the movies that are already out, and have ordered the last one.

I’m not worried because I own the editions I like to watch and really can’t stomach the movies “directed” by Yates and so won’t pay money for them. I am not, however, selfish enough to say “Well, I already have the movies so they can do whatever they want.” Between financial and geographic concerns, there are many fans negatively affected by this decision and I am absolutely appalled. Corporations are all about profits, yes, but there is a way to do things and this is not it. I will never give WB any more of my money. If there is something I want that is put out by them, I will purchase it used on ebay or at a thrift store or flea market. I will give my money to another consumer. Not to this corporation who has taken things way too far.

I have a question does this include all of the Ultimate Editions that have been released so far?

I wonder is this just a way to make DH 2 one of the fastest selling DVDs/Blu-Rays ever…

Not that it matters to me, I’d have bought it the day it comes out anyway.

I agree with Valeria-Johanna. I hope that most of us will be able to get our copies in November. I wonder too if WB isn’t then planning to rerelease all the films in a gussied up box.

It was a sphinx. It had the body of an over-large lion: great clawed paws and a long yellowish tail ending in a brown tuft. Its head, however, was that of a woman. She turned her long, almond-shaped eyes upon Harry as he approached. He raised his wand, he
