MischiefManaged. We in other parts of the world will get these Ultimate Editions, and it will say Philosopher’s Stone, not the Yank misnomer Sorcerer’s Stone but this is an American site so they focus on the American releases.

Are they going to release all of them like this? I have just recently bought the DVD’s basic editions. I might spend the extra money on the set again if this is how they are going to release the rest of the movies.
