Confirmed: WB to Take Harry Potter DVDs Off Shelves

For the past few months, rumors have swirled about whether or not Warner Bros. was planning to pull the home movies of the first four Harry Potter films from shelves. WB Home Video has confirmed to Leaky that the first three films - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban will go on moratorium on January 5, 2007. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will become unavailable on January 22.

Some companies - most often Disney - do this so that better/longer/more expensive/higher quality recordings can be sold unfettered later. With the recent rumblings about the high-definition Potter DVDs (which appear to have a commentary track for the first time ever), it could be that WB is planning to remaster, beef up and re-release the first four films. More as we get it.




Meh, I don't know. If they make new versions with heaps of extra material, I might be coaxed into buying them, but I'm quite happy with my current editions.

Oh, I only have "The Chamber of Secrets" on dvd right now. Should go buy the others quickly then too. Commentary tracks on these seem somewhat lame (hell, on the first two it will probably be Chris Columbus talking about how he screwed everything up...), only 3 and 4 may be cool for that.
And remastering all the movies? Since when do movies from 2001 onward already need remastering? I suppose they have been shot in a slightly higher resolution than we've seen so far... :roll:

I'll stick with the (Cheap!) current versions, instead of being force fed HD versions...
