In a move reminiscent of the Disney vault, Warner Bros. has announced they plan to quit shipping DVD and Blu-Rays of the Harry Potter series.
On Dec. 29, the discs will no longer be shipped to retailers. This includes single film editions, special editions and box sets. In an even more unusual move, this will occur a little over a month after the final film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, is released on DVD on Nov. 11.
The move is most likely to get people to purchase the entire set for Christmas, which they will be able to with the Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection, which will cost about $60.
The Harry Potter films have earned more than $12.1 billion, with $5.1 billion coming from DVD sales.
