Home Video Notes: Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix

Release Date: December 11, 2007

Warner Brothers Home Entertainment conjures up a 2-Disc Special Edition of Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix. Included in its bag of tricks are seventeen minutes of additional footage, The Hidden Secrets of Harry Potter (an A&E featurette exploring past clues to Harry’s future destiny), Trailing Tonks (a behind the scenes tour of the movie’s sets led by actress Natalia Tena who plays Nymphadora Tonks) and The Magic of Editing (an interactive opportunity to cut some virtual celluloid with director David Yates and editor Mark Day).

If you choose the DVD version, you’ll also receive a ROM with a timeline and a sneak peek at Harry Potter 6. If you select HD DVD, you’ll get the following web-enabled features: Pick Your Favorite Scene (assemble clips from the movie to create a montage), Live Community Screening (create, organize, and invite your buddies to your own screening) and Mobile Downloads (select images and ring tones to send to your mobile phone). Blu-ray adds Focus Points (some “making of” featurettes). And the Limited Edition Gift Set contains the Hogwarts Challenge, a bonus disc sporting 14 adventure games based on the first three Harry Potter films, and containing clips from the fourth and fifth movies. Audio tracks are available in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround (English, French and Spanish), with subtitles in English, French and Spanish.
