Warners to make Harry Potter DVDs disappear

Warner Bros.  has announced that all current Harry Potter DVDs will disappear on December 29th, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which doesn’t arrive in stores until November 11, 2011. Although they won’t be pulled from shelves, after that date, new copies will not be made available. Warners hasn’t announced their future plans for the series, but likely after a while, new versions of the DVDs in different packaging, probably with extra features, will be released. The press release reads: “Harry Potter, the #1 motion picture franchise of all time, will soon disappear from shelves, as Warner Bros. stops shipping all Harry Potter theatrical film titles (including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection) as of December 29, 2011 (moratorium does not include digital Electronic Sell-Through & VOD or games). The Harry Potter franchise has grossed more than $12.1 billion for Warner Bros. Entertainment, with $7 billion at the worldwide box office for Warner Bros. Pictures and $5.1 billion for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.”

    My guess is all Harry Potter films will be released in theatres in 3D.
