Default Harry Potter UK & Canada question

I ordered "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" from Australia as part of the EzyDVD clearance, only to find that, despite everything stated on the packaging, the disc actually contains the American "Sorcerer's Stone" version of the movie.

I've heard that the UK and Canadian releases contain the correct "Philosopher's Stone" version on disc. Can those who own either of these cue up the movie's opening credits to confirm? Thanks.

You're talking about the high def. release I assume? I have the SD version but not the HD version...

Thanks for checking this Josh!
I guess I'll hit up the amazon Uk sale if it still going on.

I heard the same thing about the Canadian & UK editions, I asked around about it last December and nobody could give me a definitive answer.
Amazon Canada has the complete collection, but no other information other than the Names of the movies.
The listing for HP: OOTP doesn't list the number of discs or the the features, but it is probably the US edition since it is a combo disc

PS Does any one know if the US and UK editions of Goblet of Fire are any different?
It seems like they have the same Special features

I got someone on AVSForum to confirm that the Canadian release is the "Philosopher's Stone" on disc, FYI.

Glad to know it.


hum Amazon Canada's prices, it is almost cheaper to get them from the UK.
$112.89 CAD, Canadian HP 1-4 ($28)
53.90 ($107.50 USD), UK HP 1-5 (BOGO, so 6 disks need to be bought, works out to be around $17.92)
