Yes you read that right. For some reason (Greed) Warner Brothers has decided to send all the Harry Potter DVDs to their equivalent to the Disney Vault. If you're not familiar with the Disney Vault, it's a place that Disney keeps all of its classic movies hidden, and only brings them out for special DVD releases. Meaning, you can't find Aladdin, Lion King, Snow White, or Beauty and the Beast in stores until Disney decides to take it out of the vault. Warner Brothers has opted for the same treatment for Harry Potter
I shouldn't be that mad, since I already own 7 Potter films on DVD and have already asked for the final one for Christmas. But, the other part of me loves walking into Target and seeing all the Harry Potter movies lined up next to each other. I get nostalgic, and then I usually go home and pop a Potter film in. Warner Brothers has decided that they want to make even more money from the Potter franchise and will be releasing special editions every few years. I've heard rumors of a massive edition being released in 2012, so if you want to buy the whole set, I'd wait to spend it on that, rather than the 4-disk special edition of Deathly Hallows Part 2.
If Warner Brothers wants Potter fans back on their side they should give us what we want, which is a gag reel, featuring everyone in the cast, and an awesome commentary (for any movie) featuring all main members of the cast (this means Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman thank you very much).
As I final warning, if you want to own the Harry Potter movies on DVD, you had better pick them up before December 29, or you're gonna be forced to use ebay.
How do you feel about Warner Brothers taking Harry Potter DVDs out of stores?
