July 17th, 2007 may have seemed like the end of the excitement that has surrounded the Harry Potter series for so long. But, there is so much more to come. There are movies, DVD releases, and even a theme park coming in 2009. For the Christmas of 2007 though, fans will have one thing on their mind. On December 11th, 2007 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be released on DVD. This DVD couldn’t be released at a better time. Harry Potter fans will definitely be adding this DVD to their list. But, which version will they choose? Which Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD edition will make the perfect gift? Here is a detailed overview of what each edition of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD will feature and which DVD will make the perfect gift for the fans on your list.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Single Disc DVD $28.98
This version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be available in widescreen and full screen editions and will of course be a very basic version. There aren’t any details available about the special features that will be available, if any, but this edition would make the perfect gift for the youngest fans or fans that aren’t obsessed with the series.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Dual Disc DVD $34.99 (HD and Blu-ray for $35.99)
The dual disc version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the perfect edition for fans that already have the other Harry Potter movies. The dual disc version will also be available in widescreen and full screen versions. But, the dual disc version will have 17 minutes of extra footage and a sneak peak of the upcoming Half-Blood Prince movie.
Harry Potter Years 1 – 5 Limited Edition Gift Set $83.99 (HD and Blu-ray for $104.95)
The most wonderful way to get Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is to buy this gift set. This gift set features the first five movies along with several special features. The first thing you will notice about this gift set is how beautifully packaged it is. The DVDs come in a handsome box along with several other goodies. The goodies included in this gift set are items that every Harry Potter fan will be drooling over. There is a Harry Potter Bonus DVD, a Harry Potter Interactive DVD Game called Hogwarts Challenge, a bookmark collection, and trading cards. But, what makes this gift set extraordinary is the three hours of never before seen footage. This gift set will release on the same day as Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but this won’t be the perfect gift for every fan. As I mentioned above, if the fan already has the first four movies, this gift set will be a bit redundant. On the other hand, this makes a great gift for fans who don’t already own the first four movies or for fans that only have the single disc editions of the first four movies.
Regardless of which edition you choose, you can be sure that Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a gift that is sure to please every Harry Potter fan.
