More exciting news for fans regarding what will be contained on the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD. In addition to the deleted scenes we first told you about the other day, we can now report that as a bonus fans will receive the special "J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life" documentary special (runtime 47 mins 30 seconds) that was made as the author completed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the final novel in the Harry Potter series. The British Board of Film Classification also lists additional features such as "Close Up with the Cast" that runs 28 minutes, 32 seconds long, "One Minute Drills," and a short "What's on Your Mind" segment that runs just over 6 minutes. At last report the Half-Blood Prince DVD was to be released in early December. More when we get it, stay tuned!

Thanks Phoenix!

The JK documentary seals the deal! I DVR’ed it when it was on tv, but a local tornado watch in NH overrode the broadcast!

What with the deleted scenes, theme park sneak peek (I think), and this, I’m just as excited about the extras as I am about getting my hands on the actual movie!

I hate hearing things like this; this kind of news makes me want to buy the DVD more when I really just want to wait for an all-inclusive box-set to come out :(

Was I going to purchase the HBP dvd? Maybe not, would have waited for the extra deluxe post-DH edition. But they got my money now! This is great! The doc was never going to air in Italy, so I’m thrilled to be able to finally see it!!! YAY!
