Exciting news just now from the ongoing press conference before the NYC premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. As tweeted by our own Melissa Anelli live from the conference @leaky, producer David Heyman confirmed the long hoped- for DVD collectors set. During the press conference which also has new remarks from screenwriter Steve Kloves, Melissa reports as follows: "Heyman: there will be the ultimate collector's edition, worry not" Other notable quotes:
Heyman: in blu Ray, actors go around to departments and talk with them
Also in Blu Ray, slughorn montageHeyman on splitting of DH: "the studio was very happy with our decision, let's not kid ourselves "
Heyman: kloves called the other say and said 'I think we can do three!'
Stating again what he told first told TLC last September: Heyman: Kreacher will be in the seventh film
Heyman: I don't know what the MPA were thinking (re PG rating)
Kloves: there's only so much freight the movie can carry.. We have long discussions at times (re exposition)
Kloves: I try to do the impossible initially and put everything in the script... They help with some of the heavy liftting
Kloves: the first day I met Jo... She said to me I know the movies can't be the books; what's important to me is the characters.
Kloves: I try not to be too slavishly connected to the books when it defeats the drama of cinema
Kloves: dark is easier than light (as a writer)

Director David Yates echos comments posted earlier here on TLC about the first part of DH being a road movie and the second part being more operatic.
Yates: first DH is a 'road movie'... Like three refugees being pursued by death eaters
Yates: second DH a big opera, very epic

I have the first four movies on dvd, but know I will want to buy all 8 dvds again- which is kind of annoying!

Somehow this didn’t give me a lot of information.

Well, hell. I don’t know if I want to buy HBP or DH when it comes out if there is going to be an “Ultimate” collection. I should just wait so I don’t have multiple copies like my hubby has Star Wars.
What I would truly like to see is some discussion about the Book That Must Not Be Named….how’s progress…is there progress?

I’ll buy a special boxed set, but only after both deathly hallows parts are out on DVD

I just need to know if the “ultimate collector’s editions” will have the full, uncut versions of the movies that we get to see on ABC Family? With all of the deleted scenes added back in? That would be the ultimate for me.
