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

all the films were excellent. Dumbledore was most faithfully played by Richard Harris, who unfortunately passed away before the
series got even half way through. His successor was OK but weak compared with Harris. But the wittiness of the characters such
as Herminine and Ron and the brilliant special effects kept the series strong especially later on when they became darker. I will
write about the other movies later.
I only objected to the title which in England was called Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone instead of the Sorcerers Stone.
I guess Warner Bros figured people in the US would not know what a Philosophers Stone was. Some minor changes in the story
did not alter the main story sequence from the book, which were brilliantly written by J. K. Rowling. She never talked down to the
reader even though the books were supposedly written for children. The text is sophisticated and detailed and very descriptive.
And I loved the train; I have a passion for steam locomotives and though the British ones look kind of odd without the cow catcher
on the front, I will still take a dozen. Beautiful photography and scenery enhanced the visuals. And flawless special effects.
If you haven't seen the films or read the books, I strongly recommend them if you like charming, funny, some sophistication and
just good story telling; these are not fairy tales yet are top notch fantasy movies. I got all of the movies from AMAZON as well
as the books. I give this book five stars. And little Harry, Ron and Herminine are so cute!
Disc Two contains a tour of Hogwarts, explains the game of Quidditch, Interviews with the Moviemakers, classrooms, library, and other stuff. To unlock the deleted scences on Disc 2, you have to get a wand from Diagon Alley first. To get to Fluffy, go to the "Classrooms" menu. Everything is clickable in this menu. Good luck.
