Welcome to the First Harry Potter Ultimate Edition in Hi-Def!
Spellbinding 3-Disc Set Includes New Feature-Length Documentary: Creating the World of Harry Potter Part 1: The Magic Begins
For the First Time Ever ... Uncover the intimate details of the search to cast Harry Potter and his friends • See Daniel, Rupert and Emma’s never-before-seen audition tapes • Be there with stars and filmmakers walking onto the set of the exciting first day of shooting • Learn about Chris Columbus’ critical, step-by-step decisions behind the creation of Harry Potter’s world on screen • Look back on an amazing decade’s worth of movies with Daniel, Rupert and Emma in new and vintage interviews never seen before. Plus: Exclusive Introduction by Daniel Radcliffe
The Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Ultimate Edition includes both the original theatrical cut and an extended version (a mere 6.5 minutes longer), and the picture and sound are as good as on the original Blu-ray release (the sound is now DTS-HD Master Audio rather than PCM, but both are uncompressed). Also on the disc is In-Movie Experience (the theatrical cut only), which is a combination of director Chris Columbus' picture-in-picture commentary and storyboards. Since there are numerous gaps, it helps to be able to skip to the next segment using the right arrow button. Daniel Radcliffe introduces the second disc, the main attraction of which is Creating the World of Harry Potter, Part I: The Magic Begins, an hourlong documentary in high definition that is the first of a series. It interviews all the principal cast (particularly appealing when it switches from a 2001 interview to the same person in 2009f) and covers the casting process, the sets, the premiere, and other topics. Almost 10 minutes of deleted scenes and a variety of featurettes and trailers complete the second and third discs, repeating much of the bonus material from the original Blu-ray release. Other extras include a postcard-sized book of photos and two character cards. --David Horiuchi

|Digital Copy Code||
Sadly I think those codes expire. My bad luck too, as I had planned to wait until all 7/8 movies were out to buy any of them, expecting there would be a boxed set like the books. Maybe when there is they will reset the expiration dates. Otherwise Digital Copy is a rip-off.

|I'm hoping these are the extended editions....||
Sometimes an extended edition is worth -- consider LotR. If this cut resembles that shown on the Family Channel, it will have some nice adds. If you don't think so, it is not worth the money but it is unclear to me why it is a "rip-off." Vertainly, I'd only consider the first two out... Read More

|Is there just a way to buy the Extended movie, and not get a huge set...||
But it will free up so much wallet space!

|Audio Format on Blu Ray HP discs||
PCM is uncompressed audio whereas the other two use compression. Some older players can't decode DTS HD or TrueHD, which most likely accounts for the choice of PCM to make it universally playable.
