Can’t wait for this :D I hope HBP has better special features than the OotP DVD and perhaps a sneak peak at deathly hallows :D fingers crossed

Wow, that is VERY cool that they’re putting it out as one of their combo’s! I knew they were gonna do that with a lot of movies, but I had no idea they’d do it with Harry Potter! And that they’re also giving us a digital copy? I LOVE how they’re making it so much easier for us to bring it on the go! They’re really giving something back to us fans with this release. :)

I am hoping they may have a deleted scene of Snape and Harry in the bathroom with Runil Waslips book or detention with the files of Sirius and James’ misdemeanors!

I was only able to go see HBP one time so, I am really excited for the DVD. I only have prehistoric standard DVD so, I am hoping they include bonus stuff with that, too. And, with the upcoming release of the collectors CoS DVD there is so much to be excited about lol

Day before my birthday!
Lets hope this download is something we can all have after my hopes for the soundtrack came crashing down on my ears (I’ve still not discovered any features on my disc)

I’m holding out to buy the whole movie series on Blu-Ray. Until then regular old DVD will have to do. Blu-Rays are way awesome, but rather pricey. Can’t wait until they push out the Harry Potter Collectors Set (Films 1-7) on Blu-Ray!
