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!

I’m definitely gonna buy the DVD when it’s out. I don’t have a Bluray player yet, but hopefully by the time all eight films and their Extended Editions are out, I will have moved on to the 21st century (LOL) and will be able to buy the Ultimate Collector’s Edition Box Set (8 EEs and their extras) on Bluray.

This is so awesome. I tried to watch it when it was on TV, but my DVR messed it up and I could not see it all. This is so great.
