The Harry Potter movie series was a huge event, and the upcoming Harry Potter Wizards Collection is going to make sure you remember it with thirty-one blu-ray discs. Easily a must for any big collector and we’ve got a couple new clips showing more behind the scenes below.
Many times movie franchises will wait years before putting out something as massive as the Harry Potter Wizards Collection hoping to keep milking out more money from fans, but not so with this one. They know that to have a price take just under $350, they better make sure fans are willing to shell out that kind of money. This is one of those rare times it’s so worth getting this one.
It’s actually a rather beautifully designed that weighs 19 pounds. Yup, it weight matches the price and what you get with it is just astounding. The box itself is like a cool magic trick. When you open the lid inside is a cabinet with drawers to pull out plus some spring-triggered secret compartments that will bring out the little kid in anyone. When it arrived here, even the most jaded of souls Miss Sashay crept out of her office and once we opened the lid, she just couldn’t stop playing with it like a Barbie’s dreamhouse.
For me it was like a cool little treasure hunt since each of the hidden areas holds various Harry Potter movie memorabilia and there’s even the Horcrux or a copy of Salazar Slytherin’s locket that was seen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I.
I don’t need to talk about the movies since any fan has seen them all at least once, but seeing them like this will be a treat for anyone who hasn’t seen them or a mega fan that can revisit and watch the evolution of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Ruper Grint growing up before you eyes.
So along with a DVD, Blu-ray and Ultraviolet copy of each movie, this is an idea of just some of the special features which are very special indeed. I rarely review a blu-ray release based solely on the design and special features, but this is one that deserves high praise for creativity.
Here’s a gallery of images to show you everything you’ll get in this collection to. Everything from Marauder’s Map, Hermione’s Time-Turner and the Quidditch World Cup program. One of the clips below shows the secrets revealed of how they created the famous Quidditch scenes.
