As reported earlier, the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD is widely rumored (although not yet officially confirmed) to be released around the November 12 time frame. On a related note, one of many purported covers of the boxes to the DVD is now online, this one from the movie informer, although we are unable to obtain any source or information about this website, so again, please keep this in the rumor category for now as well.
If you have information or questions about any available or future DVD release, this is the place to post it.

While previously there had been reports of a release date in early November, including from Amazon UK, today DVDActive has received the artwork for the discs including the high definition formats, along with a new release date of December 11. You can see this artwork here. Coming Soon is also now reporting this as well.
What is interesting in the news from DVDActive are some new details about items to be included, such as the "Trailing Tonks feature with Actress Nat Tena, various making of featurettes, and a Fun and Games feature in which director David Yates and editor Mark Day show us what a difference a good edit makes and allows you to edit a scene." Of note is the inclusion of a documentary from A & E, the one that aired over the summer featuring our Floo partner and Lexicon founder, Steve Vander Ark, and the Coming Soon report says this documentary is "The Hidden Secrets of Harry Potter" in which look for clues in the past Harry Potter films for what the future films may hold. Another feature is an "In Movie Experience," in which you join the cast from Dumbledore's Army as they come together to share memorable moments
We are trying to get more information on all of this, so stay tuned!

MTV has now posted online a special feature featuring deleted scenes from the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD, as well as some fantastic behind the scenes footage of the Hall of Prophecy. The clip includes two new interviews with production designer Stuart Craig and OotP director David Yates, and you can see new video of the prophecy globes and more.
Also new are more details about a long hoped for scene, the Pensieve scene focusing on Lily and Snape. David Yates explains why this had to be cut from the movie:
(I've spoiler-texted this, as it gives away Deathly Hallows.)
"What you won't find in the DVD's deleted scenes, however, is a shot that fans thought would have made the film because it explained Snape's behavior throughout the whole series, a scene referred to as Snape's worst memory, in which he calls a teenage Lily, Harry's mom-to-be, a Mudblood. Some of that was in the film, but it stopped short of showing Lily, who turned out to be the love of Snape's life. "We had a lovely actress play Lily," Yates said. "And we may bring her back. But by introducing Lily and the Lily/Snape plot, that back story, we complicated it too much. We had to cut it."
Finally you can see two deleted scenes, including more with a hilarious Professor Trelawney (Emma Thompson) attempting to eat dinner in the great hall during the introduction of Professor Umbridge, here.
