Default 'Harry Potter Years 1-5' -- pre-release buzz

Warner has finally announced 'Harry Potter' for Blu-ray (and HD DVD) December 11:

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/harr...hephoenix.html

'Order of the Phoenix' is due day-and-date with the standard-def DVD. No tech specs yet, but the Blu-ray and the HD DVD will not have identical extras. The HD DVD gets an IME track, while both share additional "Focus Points" vignettes, plus an A&E TV special, additional featurette and deleted footage.

Retail is $34.95 for the BLu-ray, $39.98 for the HD DVD/DVD combo.

Note the 'Years 1-5 Giftset' is also due on both formats December 11, though Warner will be revealing those specs at a later date. Plus, no word yet on if any of the first four films will be made available separately.

Stay tuned!

"Warner has not yet released tech specs for the high-def releases, so it's unknown whether or not high-resolution audio will be supported. We'll keep you posted."

Oh the mind reels.

It's like christmas in december...

Wait. Ah heck, who cares if there's no analogy...

YAY!

I picked the right year to get into BluRay.

First Dawn of the Dead, then Kubrick, and now these.
they just need to get Back to the Future, LOTR, and Indiana Jones on BR and I'm done.

Not a bad price for five movies, though, and keep in mind that's list price; "real world" pricing will often be much less.

I don't mean this in a smackdown way, but if you want Back to the Future you couldn't have picked a worse time to get into blu-ray.
