4.0 out of 5 stars Magical Edition, 22 Dec 2011
By 
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Ultimate Edition) - Double Play (Blu-ray + DVD) [2011] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
This is the 2nd HP Ultimate Edition boxset. This edition is red (UE 1 was blue) with a cardboard sleeve. The box inside is solid and and very well-presented with lovely detailing. Inside there is a hardback 'Creating The Characters of Harry Potter' photo album featuring lots of pictures of the cast and some interesting concept drawings. There is also a paper folder which contains two artcards - Hagrid and Harry Potter - and a digital film code leaflet.
The discs themselves are housed in a separate fold-out dvd set:
Disc 1: Blu-Ray Movie (Theatrical Version)
Disc 2: DVD Movie (Theatrical Version)
Disc 3: DVD Movie (Extended Version)
Disc 4: DVD Special Features (Conversation With J.K.Rowling and Screenwriter Steve Kloves, 16 Mins of Additional Scenes, Sketch Gallery, Build A Scene, Tour of Chamber of Secrets, Diagon Alley, Dumbledores Office, Character Q&As, Character Snapshots
Disc 5: DVD 'Creating The Characters of Harry Potter' Documentary with Screen Tests, Trailers & TV Spots (1. The Magic Begins 2. Characters 3. Magical Creatures 4. Sound & Music 5. The Evolution of Harry Potter 6. Special Effects 7. Growing Up Potter 8. The Harry Potter Phenomenon)
Although this edition is marketed as a Blu-Ray set, please be aware that only one disc is a Blu-Ray which is my only complaint. Unfortunately the UK version does not contain a Blu-Ray extended version of the film which is really disappointing, especially when the US version of this boxset has one. However, the DVD extended version of the film is still great to watch with some worthwhile scene additions. Some of the extras here have been featured before on other Potter discs but the documentary on Disc 5 is new and interesting, offering a fantastic behind-the-scenes look with the cast. There's some lovely sections of the cast reading extracts of the books which is great to watch. Overall I think this set is magical and a wonderful edition for any fan... it's just a shame there's not an extra Blu-Ray extended version of the film.

I got Snape (and McGonagall) in The Philosophers Stone Ultimate Edition and Hagrid & Harry in The Chamber of Secrets Ultimate Edition. Do you know which artcards were supposed to be in UE1 then? I didn't know if they were assigned randomly or if you were supposed to have specific ones for each Ultimate Edition.

Ohhh really!? You got Snape (and McGonagall, tehee) in UE1? Well, they must have mixed it up or something because Harry is meant to come with Philosopher's Stone and you can find out by looking at the back of the slipcase which shows you the contents of the set. Thanks for giving me hope! (I love Snape and was devastated when his card was replaced with Harry's) I thought that they'd mucked up or something because I ordered all 6 UE's but only 2, 3 and 5 have arrived so far and I thought I'd still get Harry's card in Philosopher's Stone. But I guess that's not the case. aha YAY
