Warner Bros. has announced that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will only be available for a limited time on Blu-ray and DVD. The discs don’t arrive until November 11th.
Fans wanting to buy any of the discs should buy them now, because all eight films are going on moratorium starting December 29th. This means that copies will no longer be printed, and new stores will not be able to reorder more. The discs will surely be re-released in the future, but for now it’s not known when.
Here are the details from the official press release:
Harry Potter, the #1 motion picture franchise of all time, will soon disappear from shelves, as Warner Bros. stops shipping all Harry Potter theatrical film titles (including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, and Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection) as of December 29, 2011 (moratorium does not include digital – Electronic Sell-Through & VOD – or games). The Harry Potter franchise has grossed more than $12.1 billion for Warner Bros. Entertainment – with $7 billion at the worldwide box office for Warner Bros. Pictures and $5.1 billion for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
