'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Sep 17, 2009 at 10:00 AM PDT by

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers has revealed plans to bring the latest installment in the 'Harry Potter' saga to Blu-ray in December.

'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' starring Daniel Radcliffe is coming to high-definition on December 8.

Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemorts defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, Harry discovers an old book marked mysteriously "This book is the property of the Half-Blood Prince" and begins to learn more about Lord Voldemort's dark past.

Specs, supplements, and suggested list price are still unknown, but the release will include a DVD as well as a digital copy of the film.
