Earlier this year we reported that Amazon France was offering a limited "Prestige edition" collection of Harry Potter DVDs housed in a special container set at the base of a replica of Hogwarts. Today, the French Amazon website has been updated with the news that this set containing DVDs of all six Harry Potter films, including Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will be released on November 16, 2009. Also the regular editions of the discs, Standard, Blu-Ray, Double DVD (note: these show different cover art than the UK editions released last week) contain November 18th and a November 25th release date.  As readers will recall, the latest reports had a HBP DVD release date of December 8th here in the US, so we do not know if this means we may seen a bumped up release date for the disc, why there are so many different dates for the French release of Half-Blood Prince DVDs, or what all this may mean. We are trying to learn more and will update when we can.

The Prestige collection of French language Harry Potter DVDs appears to contain the Noble Collection replica of Hogwarts (or something quite like it),  along with a velvet drawer with slots for all the DVDs, including two spots for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows DVDs. It is currently available for pre-order in Standard and Blu-ray formats.

Thanks Tracy!

ok are you lot nuts why would you bother buying a dvd boxset before the final films have finished i mean come on whats the point in having 4 or 5 dets of the same movie. why not just wait till the special extended 7 year boxset comes out. you know that your only feeding the greedy bosses at warner bros more money thats the only reason they bring out a boxset every year coz of dumb people go out and buy them again and again, use ya brains people just wait for the special extended editions to come out once the films are over you know there gonna bring a super delux special extended version of all the films and do wht they did with lord of the rings and that is to probabley to put all the deleted scenes back in and also scenes that they filmed and didnt make it into the deleted scenes section on previously seen hary potter dvds. be smart guy dont go nuts just wait a bit longer. why buy the bosses another mansion or ferrarhi make them greedy gits wait to for there money. let em wait till the bring out the best boxset ever with every film included and all the bits that were cut to be in it. who agrees with me i think it makes perfect sense.

Hmm…I will wait until extended editions of all eight films are released. Now that will certainly be worth my money.

Hm, I think it doesn’t really make sense to buy a set of only 6 of the 8 movies. The Hogwarts replica is really cool, though.

Wow, I wish I had the money! The castle looks amazing! But I’m just going to get a set after all the movies come out. Why get 1-6 when there will most likely be a 1-8 after all this is over?
