Warner Bros pulling HARRY POTTER DVDs off the market

Warner Bros will stop supplying the Harry Potter DVDs/Box sets/etc. to retailers on December 29, in a move to pull the DVDs off the market. But fans don’t worry as I am sure they will be back on shelves in a couple of years time – in snazzier new packaging and with some ‘never seen before’ special footage.

This is similar to how Disney deal with their DVD/Blue Ray titles. Disney has long released its classic animated movies for limited times. By going on sale for a limited time, after being off the market for years, this has ensured that the titles fly off the shelves. It also gives Disney a chance to add something to the DVDs and called it a Limited/Special Edition. This is a great marketing plan and no doubt Warner Bros are hoping the same will happen with the Harry Potter franchise in years to come – which by the way has already earnt them over $12.1billion!

According to the Hollywood Reporter “Warners said it will stop shipping all titles, including box sets and special and limited editions. That includes the final title in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which hits stores Nov. 11, as well as Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection.”

Below is the trailer for the very first Harry Potter film – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone (Depending on which country you’re living in)

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

My name's Sarina Bellissimo and I am a TV/Movie junkie. I can’t remember a time when I wasn't fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! In 2007 I started as a regular contributor to We Love Movies. This means that I get to watch movies, talk about them and even interview some of my screen idols. I’ve interviewed the likes of Robert Pattinson, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Craig, Uma Thurman, Colin Farrell, Cameron Diaz, and U2, to name but a few. One of my favourite interviews for We Love Movies was the one where I ended up sitting on Ashton Kutcher’s lap! Interviewing Sylvester Stallone would be a dream come true for me. I also appear regularly on Plan B to talk movies with Michelle Beatty as well as regularly contribute to Moncrieff’s Movies and Booze segment on Newstalk 106-108. I co-presented channel 6’s (now 3e) movie show Take Six and have appeared on Ireland AM's Movie & I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here segments. Twitter: @SBellissimo
