Many of you know that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is preparing to write a new novel aimed at adults, but what’s a Potter fan to do in the meantime? Well, now that all eight films have been released, you can pre-order the ultimate movie set dubbed, Harry Potter Wizards Collection on Blu-ray / DVD Combo with UltraViolet Digital Copy. Details have yet to be confirmed and there is not currently a street date , but the pre-order price is set at about $350 (“marked down” from $500). It’s a limited and numbered edition of 31 discs with over 5 hours of never-before-seen footage. The special collectibles include a map of Hogwarts and concept art, while some of the features appear to have extended editions. Hit the jump to check out the collection.
The $350 price tag will be a lot easier to swallow once Warner Bros. releases some details about the “Wizards Collection.” So far, Amazon-Canada has this listed under additional description:

31 discs? That pans out to eleven bucks and change per disc, which is much more tolerable. Still, the price may be a bit too high for some people. Considering producer David Heyman mentioned the Blu-ray set to Steve when he visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter late last year, it comes as no surprise that these films have gone up for pre-order, especially since the studio pulled all the previous movie editions from the shelves. But with the Pottermore website stalled and no new films coming out, Warner has to find some way to keep generating income from one of history’s most successful franchises. While we wait for details on the new ultimate collector’s edition (at least until the next more-ultimate edition rolls out) you can read our review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 Blu-ray here. Check out some images from the Harry Potter Wizards Collection on Blu-ray below. You can also watch a nifty animation of the collector’s box magically opening to reveal its hidden compartments (courtesy of SnitchSeeker). Also, click on over to Amazon to pre-order it, of course!
