A quick follow today regarding extended editions of the Harry Potter films coming to DVD. Rope of Silicon is now reporting that an extended edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets has been rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America. This follows earlier news that an extended edition of Sorcerer's Stone was finally to be released on DVD. Earlier reports also had word that WB was going to release extended editions of all of the Harry Potter films on DVD very soon, however firm confirmation on an actual release date for these have not yet been released.

Thanks to Rope of Silicon and Matt!

I’m hoping that the extended editions are really extended, not just a scene or two added to the film…

I apologize for not remembering who first pointed this out, about a month ago: the words being used by HP/WB executives are “Ultimate” collection and “Extended” collection….its not yet clear if these are one and the same, or two different sets….. In the past, some films have been re-released in multiple versions, “the director’s cut”, the “extended version”, and so on. I don’t expect that to happen but we should recognize it as a possibility

Since we have a release date for HBP, I would guess that these re-releases will become available late spring or early summer 2010 as part of the run up publicity to the release of DH 1.

I hope they’re not just adding the deleted scenes but actual scenes we haven’t seen anywhere else.

I hate this. Why would I want to have two copies of each film? Why not sell the extended editions in the first place! The answer: MOOLA!!

very true shellymione. i mean how many people on this very site have said that they already own versions, will buy the extended versions, and then will buy the collectors set?! It’s a tremendous source of money.

I do have to wonder though whether there is also an element of time. Maybe it just takes longer to seem the movie back together once its been edited to bits for the big screen. Even so I hardly think it would take 10 years, which is practically how long its been since the first movie. I do hope its something more than the ABC version. Though its fabulous to watch, there’s a sense of been there, done that.

Here’s hoping they put some more stuff in that’s true to the books. God, I’m going to have soooo many Harry Potter DVDs/videos!! YAY!! I guess I can’t really complain! :)
