The second disc is all extras. I guess it was designed for Harry Potter fans and people who enjoyed the movie very much because it was assumed that you've watched the movie beforehand. The deleted scenes were a little hard to find since several steps have to be taken. First I had to go to get the key and take money from the Gringotts bank in Diagon Alley. Then purchase wand from Olivander's. Then return to the school and attend classes. Go to potions class and answer three questions. The questions were a little bit of a hassle for me. Answer for the 1st question: Aphrodel and the tube next to it (forgot name); 2nd question: wolfsbane and monkhood; 3rd question: snake fangs and porcupine quills. After the questions, select winged key by trying out a few. Then select the orange colored potion and you will see the mirror of erised. There are a total of 7 deleted scenes. Although some will say they are not worth the hassle, but I liked them. My other favorite extra is the interview. It was good to learn about the behind the scenes interaction of the director/producer/actors etc and production of the movie in general. They also mentioned something about the second movie.
Overall good buy. Worth every cent. Will rewatch it on DVD many times.
Two words: Absolutely Amazing!
This isn't just some scam from Warner Bros to get a few more dollars squeezed out of the Harry Potter movies, this is brand new and refreshing. Warner Bros packaged this set to be (or what appears to be) the last Harry Potter set to be had. Everything that you could want in a collectors set it included here.
The booklet included is surprisingly well done. The book keeps with the theme of the special feature exclusive to the ultimate edition. For example, in the Chamber of Secrets edition the booklet is all about the characters and their development, both at the beginning of the series and how they have evolved through the years. Included are stills from the movie, pictures of the theme (ie. characters, buildings, sets), and my favorite... concept art.
As for the character cards that are included they aren't anything super special but at the same time they aren't cheaply done. The cards are solid and printed well. I could see where some people will find them very satisfying and a highlight of the edition.
The thing that I was most impressed with, however, was the presentation. Finally someone released a special edition of a film and made it presentable and convenient. The boxes are made to look like books that fold open and are neatly packed on the inside. Also on the inside of the book there are images from the film, making it look very much like a collector's item. Warner Bros has really set themselves up nicely for the release of the next six of these.
Overall I was extremely pleased with this edition of the movie and cannot wait for the rest to be released.
The film itself is beautifully remastered so the stunning scenery and somewhat impressive special effects truly come to life. If you are a true Harry Potter fan, then this Ultimate Edition is a must own especially on blu-ray.
The contents include:
A blu-ray disc with the theatrical version and the extended version with 7 deleted scenes of over 6 and a half minutes worth of film and the "In-movie experience" (picture in picture commentary with behind the scenes footage for the theatrical version only).
Languages: Spoken - English and Spanish; Subtitled - English (for the hearing impaired) and Spanish.
A second blu-ray disc with special features such as:
Behind the Story -
-Introduction with Daniel Radcliffe (2 minutes)
-Creating the World of Harry Potter, Part 1: The Magic Begins - a behind the scenes documentary about the endeavor of casting and creating the world for filming.Read more ›

|ebay sellers resealing used blu ray and selling as "Brand New"||
Yes, this is true anywhere online and in real life stores too. Buying a huge roll of shrink wrap is not very expensive, and all it takes is a standard heat gun to shrink it down.
I worked at a Movie, Music, and Book store. They would often take returns and put new shrink wrap on them and sell... Read More

|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

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.
