Extended Edition of Harry Potter and Sorcerer's Stone to Be Released, More Possible Soon

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!

Totally awesome. Woooohooo, can’t wait. I want the complete boxed set of
all the extended versions, all deleted scenes in.
This news has made my day :-)

Oh dear. The film’s far too long and slow as it is. An extended edition would be interminable.

I wish they’d release a version cut down to 2 hours. I might make it through the film without falling alseep. Same with CoS!

This is fantastic! I just hope that they aren’t only on blu-ray because I don’t have a player yet! And hopefully the extended will be like Lord of the Rings extended. That would be so amazing!

I’m super excited. I don’t know if it will be worth it though…if they just add in the deleted scenes, I’ve already seen those. And not to mention I don’t want to spend the money to rebuy all the movies. Especially I already have more than one copy of the Goblet of Fire (in order to get the bonus features). I might buy the new ones if I knew more about them and decide if they’re worth it.

fab, I have always wantd the extended scene of the first ever potions class in its rightful place in the movie. It’s so annoying to have to go through the rigmarole of the DVD game first. I also love the deleted schene with the Malfoys in Borgin and Burkes – how that ever got cut is a mystery to me!

WB will still be releasing “new and improved” editions of the DVDs 20 years from now. The HP films may be the ultimate cash cow. I admit I’m fanatic about the books, but not so the films. But I loved POA and own it on DVD. I don’t know if my DVD is a “no frills” or extended or ultimate or vitamin enriched version. I don’t really care. I love the film as is and will not be buying a “better” version.
