Product Overview

The Harry Potter Limited Edition Giftset includes Harry Potter's Years 1-5 (THE SORCERER'S STONE, THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS, THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, THE GOBLET OF FIRE, and THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX), a Harry Potter DVD game Hogwarts Challenge, along with a bonus disc containing over two hours of enhanced content, an exclusive Harry Potter's Bookmark Collection, and collectible trading cards!

THE SORCERER'S STONE: Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) learns on his 11th birthday that he is the orphaned son of two powerful wizards and possesses magical powers of his own. At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, discovering a world of magic and fantasy where he is destined to live.

THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS: Cars fly, trees fight back and a mysterious elf comes to warn Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) at the start of the second year of his amazing journey into the world of wizardry. This year at Hogwarts, spiders talk, letters scold and Harry's own unsettling ability to speak to snakes turns his friends against him. From dueling clubs to rogue Bludgers, it's a year of adventure and danger when bloody writing on a wall announces: The Chamber of Secrets has been opened. To save Hogwarts will require all of Harry, Ron and Hermione's magical abilities and courage in this spellbinding adaptation of J.K. Rowling's second book. Get ready to be amused and petrified as Harry Potter shows he's more than a wizard, he's a hero!

THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN: In HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends Ron and Hermione return as teenagers to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for their third year of study, where they delve into the mystery surrounding an escaped prisoner who seems to pose a dangerous threat to Harry.

THE GOBLET OF FIRE: When Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe)'s name emerges from the Goblet of Fire, he becomes a competitor in a grueling battle for glory among three wizarding schools - the Triwizard Tournament. But since Harry never submitted his name for the Tournament, who did? Now Harry must confront a deadly dragon, fierce water demons and an enchanted maze only to find himself in the cruel grasp of He Who Must Not Be Named. In this fourth film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, everything changes as Harry, Ron and Hermione leave childhood forever and take on challenges greater than anything they could have imagined.

THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX: Lord Voldemort has returned, but few want to believe it. In fact, the Ministry of Magic is doing everything it can to keep the wizarding world from knowing the truth - including appointing Ministry official Dolores Umbridge as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts. When Professor Umbridge refuses to train her students in practical defensive magic, a select group of students decides to learn on their own. With Harry Potter as their leader, these students (who call themselves "Dumbledore's Army") meet secretly in a hidden room at Hogwarts to hone their wizarding skills in preparation for battle with the Dark Lord and his Death Eaters. New adventure - more dangerous, more thrilling than ever - is yours in this enthralling film version of the fifth novel in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. A terrifying showdown between good and evil awaits. Prepare for battle!

Review [Order] With its fifth cinematic outing, the Harry Potter film series has ascended to another level. In addition to providing a self-contained, well-paced adventure, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix also begins to coalesce the epic ether that has been building over the past four films (especially the last two). With this movie, we sense that we're on the brink of something big, dark, and ominous...For a franchise that began under the lightweight guardianship of director Chris Columbus, these pictures have gotten progressively darker. The Order of the Phoenix is easily the gloomiest yet. The movie is not suitable for young children...With The Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter has truly come into his own, fulfilling the promise of The Prisoner of Azkaban and The Goblet of Fire. These are no longer cute stories of wizards and magic and things that go bump in the night. They are dark tales where the themes and creatures become increasingly distorted as the frames whiz by. The Order of the Phoenix is the best on offer to-date from the Harry Potter cinematic franchise, and one of the few reasons during the summer of 2007 to venture out to a multiplex.

Review [Sorcerer's] ''Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" is a red-blooded adventure movie, dripping with atmosphere, filled with the gruesome and the sublime, and surprisingly faithful to the novel. A lot of things could have gone wrong, and none of them have: Chris Columbus' movie is an enchanting classic that does full justice to a story that was a daunting challenge. The novel by J.K. Rowling was muscular and vivid, and the danger was that the movie would make things too cute and cuddly. It doesn't. Like an "Indiana Jones" for younger viewers, it tells a rip-roaring tale of supernatural adventure, where colorful and eccentric characters alternate with scary stuff like a three-headed dog, a pit of tendrils known as the Devil's Snare and a two-faced immortal who drinks unicorn blood. Scary, yes, but not too scary--just scary enough...During "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," I was pretty sure I was watching a classic, one that will be around for a long time, and make many generations of fans. It takes the time to be good. It doesn't hammer the audience with easy thrills, but cares to tell a story, and to create its characters carefully. Like "The Wizard of Oz," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," "Star Wars" and "E.T.," it isn't just a movie but a world with its own magical rules.

Review [Prisoner] Pardon the pun, but when it comes to Harry Potter films, the third time's a charm. Not that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets weren't excellent movies. They were. But Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban eclipses both of them...First, important information for Potter purists: 1) Three key points have been changed to streamline the story, which results in a nice adaptation, but not a faithful one. Whether these changes will affect future books/films is a question many are pondering. Author JK Rowling, in an interview with USA Today, claimed that director Alfonso Cuaron (Y Tu Mama Tambien) unintentionally made choices that foreshadow events in Books Six and Seven; 2) Numerous subplots have been deleted entirely; 3) There is only one Quidditch scene (you know which one)...Whereas the first two films were clearly kids' movies--despite grownups showing up in costume for midnight premieres--the mood of Azkaban reflects the adolescence it portrays...If you are new to the world of Harry Potter, fear not. Although Azkaban provides only minimal backstory, a fellow reviewer said she was able to follow along with no problem--and she thoroughly enjoyed the film.
