The 31-disc Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection Blu-ray/DVD box set will be released on Sept. 7 in the U.S. and Sept. 10 in the U.K., it’s been announced.

This definitive collection will include all eight Harry Potter films, plus over four hours of never-before-seen footage. The massive box set weighs an impressive 19 pounds, and will also come with “artistic and authentic film memorabilia.”

The official Harry Potter website has been updated to reflect the impending release of the Wizard’s Collection. An interactive wand gesture game has been added to the site so fans can unlock exclusive previews of the bonus material every week.

This week, Yahoo! has the first exclusive preview which shows a young Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) talking about a rather “unpretty picture” he drew of Alan Rickman (Severus Snape). The clip then shows a present-day Grint and Rickman talking about the drawing. Watch it below!

Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection is available for pre-order through Amazon.com for $349. The U.K. edition is priced at £259.99.

Avatar ImageMr. Stratford says: But, the question is, is the extra footage finished, and edited into each film? If not, this set is neat but an absolute waste of time for me. I want extended films, like LOTR, not extra discs I have to pop in to watch a minute or two of extra footage here and there.Avatar Imagezaucwrkexun says: Woah. It costs a fortune so unless they alter the pricing their product won't be as successful as they intended. :( @Mr.Stratford: So true. Who'd buy something with a few extra minutes for a couple of hundred quid, when they can get the full box set for just £30?Avatar ImageLisasimpsonfan says: Doubt I will be buying this since last Christmas I got the first 6 movies for $24USD. A fancy cardboard box doesn't interest me that much.Avatar ImageRaytheforgottenWeasley says: how about the ultimate editions for 6-7-8....... Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: The sound doesn't seem to go with the picture on part of this video.Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: As much as I'd love this, its much too expensive for me. Besides, I have all the movies, got them the very first day each came out. Those memories when I reach for the DVDs are more special, I think, than buying them all yet again just for a little extra here and there. Also, the extra footage will sooner or later end up on youtube to watch. :)Avatar Imageastreaward says: One of the HUGE problems I have with this set is that the digital copies are still through "Ultra-Violet." Until the set includes ultimate editions for all eight films and dump the "Ultra-Violet" nonsense, I won't be buying it. It looks pretty , though.Avatar ImageTarana says: I haven't bought the 2 DH DVDs yet, because I was hoping for extended editions, or perhaps even a really cool extended set of the two (with a nice statue or something like that). I might be tempted to buy a full set (again) if the extras are great. This box looks great, but is this really the 'ultimate' set (I doubt it very much!), or will there another one later, with even more extras or even (finally!) the extended editions of all movies? Another thing that bugs me, is that apparently you get lots more extras on Blu-ray discs that you don't get on DVDs. So, I have to get a Blu-ray player or miss out on some great stuff. I'd love to watch the Radcliffe/Rowling interview which is supposed to be on the Blu-ray of DH2, but which is not the DVD. I am 'not amused' about this :o( And of course the Blu-rays are far more expensive than the DVDs. Even twenty :o( :o( 's are not enough to express my bummered feelings about all of this!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: Wow, wow, wow. I really can't wait! I love these and some day I might finally get the money to purchase them. :DAvatar ImageLunaLuver says: Blue-ray isnt really that much more expensive if you buy them when tey first come out, same ss DVDs. Otherwise they shoot up in price and you have to wait until the go on sale again.Avatar ImageMissWeasley8 says: *Whistle*Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: I really want this even though I have got all the discs... and special editions of 1-5! but maybe for Christmas I'll ask...Avatar ImagesoseLellata says: I would be A LOT more excited for this if it weren't just the first two films that include extended cuts. Why not release all the extended cuts at once? Another example of Warner Bros. stringing fans along to pay more. Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: This video is kinda out of sync. Anyway its way too expensive and to be honest it annoys how much stuff we have to buy just to see some dvd extras. Avatar ImageTarana says: @LunaLuver: Alright, maybe the prices I've seen were a bit too recent, but I'm pretty sure I saw the Blu-ray of DH2 go for 25 euros and the DVD for 17 euros, on release day. Still quite a difference. When my DVD player needs replacement, I will probably be no longer able to resist the temptation, and buy a Blu-ray player anyway. And of course, (hopefully) the best HP collection to go with it. Oops, I'd better start saving... ;o)Avatar ImageAmazing Amoeba says: whoah..expensive. I've got better stuff to spend my money on..and i bet you could find the extra scenes elsewhere.Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: I agree with Raytheforgottenweasley -- how about the Ultimate editions of 6, 7 and 8!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I think I shall sell my car & get me one of these!Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: I don't own any of them on DVD or Blu-Ray because I've been waiting for a ultimate edition set, but this is way to much money! Is that only the pre-sale price and be more after just curious if anyone knows?Avatar ImageHermione_Granger_Weasley says: Was that story by Rupert supposed to be new information, because we heard that story a LONG time ago. Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: that coolAvatar Imagekmac23va says: Don't know about elsewhere, but I've got Ultimate Edition for HBP on Blu-Ray. Wonder if they're going to both with DH...if they do, it should be presented as "year 7" with both movies, if not just merging the movies into one.
