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!

The extended editions sound great! Just wonder how much longer the movies will be. If the extended stuff isn’t all that long, I don’t think I’ll bother, but if it winds up being like the Lord of the Rings extended editions, I’m in.

Everything seems amazing!!! can’t wait but I’ll be waiting for de REALLY ULTIMATE collector’s edition with all 8 films in one set hoping for commentaries and really new extended films, even tho I have each film’s dvd… Also I don’t think here in Mexico they will release these first “Ultimate Editions”

My question is why there is a HBP picture on the CoS booklet? I think that’s a mistake or something, the one in PS seems from the right film… well whatever…

I’m definitly gett ing all three. SS & COS on U.E. on Blu-Ray, and HBP on 2disc special edition. no point in gett ing HBP Blu-Ray when I’ll eventully get the U.E. of it in Blu-Ray. Can’t wait. BTW anyone realise thatthere is an 8 part documentary and will be 8 movies, meaning eventually the U.E. will be available in all eight films. Awesome.

An eight-hour documentary?! I hate you, WB! You keep tempting me to buy all these re-releases before an all-encompassing boxset comes out.

Mmmkay, looks like I’m going to have to buy these on Bluray even though I don’t have a Bluray player yet.. That’ll be a good excuse to visit someone who has a Bluray player and the works. I’m not buying these on DVD if the DVD releases contain something less than the Bluray versions. Though I will definitely buy the regular 2-disk or 3-disk HBP on DVD and wait for the EE of HBP to come out before buying it on Bluray.
