A quick note before we start today’s post: A bunch of you have e-mailed over the past week or so and I’ve got a bit of a backlog in getting back to everyone. So if you haven’t heard from me yet, I’ll do my best to respond to all of you over the next few days. Thanks for your patience!

Now then... let’s have an overdue announcement news round-up, shall we?

First up today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is going to be releasing Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on 4K Ultra HD on 11/7 (SRP $31.99 each), along with the previously revealed Harry Potter 8-Film Collection in 4K UHD (SRP around $215.99).
