Warner Bros. plans to release Ultimate Edition Blu-ray sets for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on June 14. Each two-disc Ultimate Edition Blu-ray box will retail for $49.99.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix comes with a second disc containing the documentary “Creating the World of Harry Potter Part 5: Evolution.” The package comes with a 44-page photo book and featurettes that look at the creative and production decisions throughout the eight movies.
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince comes with the documentary “Creating the World of Harry Potter Part 6: Magical Effects.” The set includes a featurette “How Effects Wizards Created the Magic of Harry Potter While Grounding it in Reality;” and another film discussing the ways filmmakers infused Hogwarts with magic around every corner. Additional featurettes look at how visual and special effects techniques were combined to generate spectacular wizarding battles.
The two box sets containing years five and six join similar package sets for years one-through-four of the Harry Potter series already on Blu-ray.
