Some news from the Potter-world at last: The OotP DVD
Let’s do this in the book’s order:
We now have an image of the Order of the Phoenix DVD front and back cover. The cover shows the core Dumbledore’s Army members in the Ministry of Magic on the front and Harry flying past Parliament on the back. The DA is visible on the first disc, while Voldemort can be seen on the second. On a side note, WB France has announced that the OOTP DVD will hit shelves in January 2008 (subject to change). The US street date has yet to be announced.
The British Board of Film Classification has revealed the names and lengths of the deleted scenes that will be included on the Order of the Phoenix DVD. They are as follows:
00:02:31:17 (“TRELAWNY EATING”)
00:00:13:08 (“NEVILLE SPEAKS UP FOR HARRY”)
00:00:26:02 (“STEADY CAM AROUND”)
00:02:46:18 (“UMBRIDGE QUESTIONS TRELAWNY”)
00:00:17:21 (“MALFOY, CRABBE, AND GOYLE BULLY A STUDENT”)
00:00:21:06 (“FILCH BLOWS ON UMBRIDGE’S HAIR”)
00:01:47:14 (“HARRY, HERMIONE, AND UMBRIDGE – EXTENDED”)
00:00:37:22 (“HARRY ENTERS”)
00:01:07:23 (“HARRY AND RON PACKING”)
In total, the scenes last 10 minutes and 10 seconds. The release date of the DVD has yet to be announced, but will almost certainly be before Christmas.
