More big news today regarding Harry Potter DVDs. In addition to the confirmed release date of December 8th for the Half-Blood Prince DVD from earlier today, we now can also confirm our earlier report that the first two collector's editions DVDs will also be released on December 8th. Video Business reports:

"Ultimate Editions of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, priced at $39.92 on DVD and $49.99 on Blu-ray, will each include five hours of special features, theatrical and extended versions of the film, a 48-page photo book and other collectibles. Among the special features will be screen tests, new featurettes with the cast and filmmakers and the first two one-hour installments of a new comprehensive documentary about the making of the movie franchise. Called Creating the World of Harry Potter, the eight-hour documentary will have one hour on each Ultimate Edition. Sorcerer's Stone will contain Creating the World of Harry Potter Part 1: The Magic Begins and Chamber of Secrets will have Part 2: Characters."

UPDATE: Home Media Magazine also points out: "Both DVD and Blu-ray offerings of the ultimate editions will include digital copies, and the Blu-ray versions will include In-Movie Experience modes with director Chris Columbus, which includes picture-in-picture, storyboard comparisons and still galleries, as well as Warner’s Maximum Movie Mode option."

In addition,two new products will be released. Another brand new Harry Potter DVD game will be available in December, as is a second iPhone application (the free HBP one is already released). Quotage:

"The new DVD game, Harry Potter: Wizarding World, will be priced at $24.98 and allow fans to test their potion-making, spell-casting and apparition skills.Warner's Harry Potter Spells iPhone app, which will be on sale at iTunes in November, will turn an iPhone or iPod Touch into a wand, allowing fans to train for 13 spells at Hogwarts and challenge friends to a duel."

Thanks so much James!

Great, surprised, but great! I want to see the extended versions.

Hm, so, “ultimate versions” of PoA and GoF in mid 2010, followed by the release of DH 1; OotP and HBP ultimate versions for holidays in 2010, dvd of DH 1 a few months later, and then DH 2 released?

As if I could be any more torn about waiting for the ultimate 8 movies edition, or going for the instant gratification of buying SS and CoS now, I find out about more bonus features! What to do?

It is going to be so hard not to get the Collector’s Edition. I really want to wait until all eight of them are out, but I don’t know anyone who’ll buy them so I can borrow in the meantime! Very, very exciting, though. :D
