Extended Edition of Harry Potter and Sorcerer's Stone to Be Released, More Possible Soon
August 12, 2009, 11:16 PM
Great news tonight! At long last, the extended editions of the Harry Potter films are being planned for release. Rope of Silicon is reporting that after the latest Motion Picture of America ratings bulletin, there was word that an extended edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone had been rated PG. The report continues that emails were sent to reps for Warner Home Video about possible extended editions of all the Harry Potter films, receiving the following reply: "Although we've not announced [it yet], all Harry Potter films are being planned to get special upcoming releases!"
Please note: We have no idea on the actual content (ie if this is the same version they show on ABC family) or whether they are contained in those special "Ultimate Collectors" DVDs we've heard about recently or when exactly this, and hopefully the others, will be available to fans; more when we get it!
Thanks much to Rope of Silicon and Jeremy at HPANA for emailing!
Oh LORD. I hope this is the versions that are being released this December! Please please please, WB, say it is!
They have to finish and put in the scenes with Peeves!
Anf of course the love scene between Aragog and Grawp, that they cut out of Order of the Phoenix!
I certainly hope that these are the same as the ultimade edition dvds… but I’m still going to try and wait for a final collection. I doubt I’ll make it though. As soon as they say something like “never before seen” or the like, and I’ll be digging out my credit card…
Finally, I can’t wait! Hopefully they’ll be better mastered and mixed than the verion shown on ABC (the PoA extended version was terrible, they added scenes in the wrong places).
Well, as someone living in the UK and hence isn’t living in WB’s favourite country, I haven’t even seen the ABC extended editions, so I should like this even more. I can’t wait for all the deleted scene we know there are – primarily because of snapshots that never appeared in the cinema versions – especially from POA (Ron’s attack – they showed deleted scenes on the aftermath, but did they actually film the attack?) and OOTP (McGonagall recovering after her stint at St Mungo’s – we saw a pic of her sitting outside Hagrid’s reading hte paper I think)
