"Harry Potter" DVDs To Disappear From Stores
Warner Bros. announced a moratorium on DVD and Blu-Ray copies of the saga. It will end all shipments of the films and collector’s sets to retailers on December 29, less than two weeks after the final installment’s November 11 release.
Disney fans will be familiar with the similar Disney Vault, a pattern in which sales of films are stopped for several years until the release of a new edition, usually with updated animation and new special features. According to MTV Movies Blog, this guarantees a future re-release of the Potter films, with bonus material and new features left out of existing copies.
Warner Bros. will only be stopping the sales of physical copies of the films, though. The moratorium does not include digital sales or games.
