A new clip from the upcoming Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection Blu-ray and DVD has made it online, featuring Daniel Radcliff (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron) and director Alfonso Cuarón discussing the third film the series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which Cuarón took over after original director Chris Columbus stepped down. The clip is part of an epic collection that will span 31 discs, available September 7th. However, if you want a piece of it immediately, your orders have to be in by Harry’s birthday (meaning today): July 31st.
The film discussed in the clip is a polarizing one for fans, some of whom (myself included) see it as an artistic achievement, and though it is long, it’s exceptionally engaging. Others simply find it just long, too artsy, and very dark (especially compared to the first two films in the series). To see the video and learn more behind-the-scenes info about the film and the upcoming collection, hit the jump. Also, get the scoop on the all-new Harry Potter Reading Club.
I’ve been holding out on buying any of the Harry Potter films on Blu-ray in the hopes that a big, ultimate box set would be released at some point down the road. Sure enough, early this month a ridiculously intricate Harry Potter Wizards Collection went up on Amazing of course!. Details were scarce at the time beyond the fact that all the films would be included on 31 discs, with over five hours of never-before-seen footage thrown in as well. Today Warner Bros. announced that the Harry Potter Wizards Collection will be available in stores and online on September 7th, and revealed more details about the set. Hit the jump for much more including a trailer for the box set.
