Warner Bros has decided to follow Disney’s example and put the Harry Potter series in the vault. I was wondering if they would try this as they had been feeling out ways to keep the franchise fresh after its final installment. This moratorium includes the soon to be released Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection, out Nov 11, 2011. This should easily boost sales for all the Potter films as anxious parents attempt to complete the collection for their wizarding kids. My best guess is the next time you see these movies hitting store shelves again they will all have been retrofitted for the 3d illusion. As it stands now only the last two movies are in 3d, and only available as a Sony exclusive package for both Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2 to those buying a Sony 3d TV. So it makes sense Warner will continue down the line and use that to spur later sales as well. For those of you on the digital curve the franchise will continue to be available for digital download sell-through and Video On Demand. The series has earned over $12 billion including $7 billion from worldwide box office and $5 billion in home video, games and other. This should ensure that the last film, Deathly Hallows Part 2 will set records in DVD and Blu-ray sales. One thing’s for sure, after December 29th ebay and Amazon will light up with overly priced Harry Potter movies.
