Product Overview

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, the Harry Potter: Years 1-5 giftset includes HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE, HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS, HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, and HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX!

THE SORCERER'S STONE: First, J.K. Rowling's delightful bestseller, then an unforgettable movie: HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE is sheer screen enchantment. At its center is Harry, orphaned, unloved, rescued, enrolled as a wizard-in-training at Hogwarts Academy and as his telltale forehead scar shows, destined for great things. Enter into the world of Hogwarts and experience the rich characters, lavish surroundings, wizardly tools and customs, the high-flying sport of Quidditch...and much more beyond imagining. For the most magic ever to visit your house, see you on Platform 9-3/4!

THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS: Cars fly, trees fight back and a mysterious elf comes to warn Harry Potter 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: Year Three at Hogwarts means new fun and challenges as Harry learns the delicate art of approaching a Hippogriff, transforming shape-shifting Boggarts into hilarity and even turning back time. But the term also brings danger. Soul-sucking Dementors hover over the school. An ally of the accursed He-Who-Cannot-Be-Named lurks within the castle walls. Fearsome wizard Sirius Black escapes Azkaban. And Harry will be forced to confront them all. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron and based on J.K. Rowling's third book, this wondrous spellbinder soars with laughs, shivers and the kind of breathless surprise only found in a Harry Potter adventure. Mischief managed!

THE GOBLET OF FIRE: When Harry Potter'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: The rebellion begins! Lord Voldemort has returned, but 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 professor at Hogwarts. When Umbridge refuses to teach practical defensive magic, Ron and Hermione convince Harry to secretly train a select group of students for the wizarding war that lies ahead. A terrifying showdown between good and evil awaits in this enthralling film version of the fifth novel in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. 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.
