Warner Brothers Releasing All Harry Potter Films In “Extended Version” Form On DVD/Bluray

Currently, the first two films are already made available at retailers
everywhere. I wanted to know just what was added back in, and what MAY
get added in to the subsequent films.
After much research I have found the following details:

Current Harry Potter Extended versions:

……………………..

……………………..…..
Film Name: Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone
7 minutes added

Restored Scenes:
* Dudley in his Smeltings uniform
* Letters in Eggs

Restored Scenes:
* Extended scene of Dobby and the cake.
* Extended flying car scene when they are taking off from King’s Cross
* Extended scene in Borgin and Burke’s where Lucius and Draco Malfoy
come in and Harry has to hide. Lucius has come in to sell some of his
dark arts materials due to all the raids. (This is a more chilling
introduction to Lucius.) Immediately followed by …
* Another Borgin and Burke’s scene where Borgin catches Harry on his way out

* Extended introduction of Colin Creevy where he says he’s muggle-born.

* Hermione says she got the Slytherin robes from the laundry when she is brewing the polyjuice potion.
* Crabbe and Goyle meet Ron and Harry dressed like them after waking up from the sleeping draught.
* Harry and Ron visit Hermione in the hospital wing (after the cat incident.)
They have found Tom Riddle’s diary and Ron says he recognizes the name
off a trophy. Leads into …
* Extended scene of Harry writing in the diary.
* Harry wakes up Ron to tell him Hagrid opened the Chamber of Secrets.
* Additional scene where Harry bumps into Hagrid in the corridor and
Hagrid says he’s been up to Dumbledore’s office about the rooster
killings.
* Harry gets his invisibility cloak out of his trunk and covers Ron and himself with it before going to Hagrid’s hut.
* Scene in the forest where Ron and Harry find the Ford Anglia.

    Bad news – the idiots at Warner DVD decided Azkaban and Goblet did not warrant an ‘Extended DVD’ in their Ultimate Edition releases. I don’t know what idiot made that decision, but they lost my sale AND my respect.
