Harry Potter Years 1-3 DVD set?

I'm sure the 2 disks for each of the first two movies are the same, but does anyone know what the inner-packaging will be like for this set yet? It'd be really dumb-looking if it was 2 digipaks and 1 keep case in this. All Amazon shows is this:

Is there going to be a Harry Potter 1-6 Box set

As most of you probably know, it's already been announced that Harry Potter 4, 5, 6 will be made in year 2005, 2007 and 2008. Do you guys think it will be a box set for all the 6 films? Or Warner is just releasing a "Vol. 2" for Harry Potter 4-6? Or is there going to be more Harry Pottor films?

My bottomline question is: Is the a good choice to purchase this box set right now or just go for the individual titles?

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

The boxset is the regular HP 1-3 bundled together in a paper box.

I won't be surprised if there will be an Ultimate Collection or some sort. Just look at Matrix and there is an UC coming out soon. By the time HP 6 comes out, Blu-Ray or HD-DVD will likely be the prevalent format and its probably time to upgrade to the collection in HD.

That's the problem with buying releases from ongoing series... no one knows how these releases will go. I'm going to guess that these will be repackaged continously as new films come out.

We'll have a 1-4 box in a couple of years, then a 1-5 box, etc. Maybe even upgraded editions of the early films to cause double-dips.


It sounds like you don't have any of the films yet. I'd grab whatever is the cheapest option -- either buy them individuall or grab the set. It sounds like the 'set' is just the individual titles in a slipcase anyway...

Yep it is. It is exactly like buying the first two and the 3rd one. They just put them in a box to hold them all.
