Winner - Comment #254 - Ardy22 said...Sybill Trelawney is one of my favs
I remember when I first discovered Harry Potter. I was in college and my sister got the first three books for Christmas. I was just hanging out around my parents house, so I picked the first one up and read the whole thing. By the end of the day I had read all three. I was hooked.
I've faithfully followed the world of Harry Potter ever since. I love the books and the movies, and I've been patiently waiting for my daughters to get bigger so we could go to the Harry Potter theme park.
I love hearing about what's new in the wizarding world. But since the 7th book is long over and we are on the 7th movie, the new items are few and far between.
This Tuesday Warner Brothers is releasing Harry Potter Ultimate Editions Years 5 & 6 on Blu-Ray and DVD. If you're like me, you've probably already seen both movies multiple times. But in addition to the movie, both DVD's feature an hour of unseen bonus features.
