It was today confirmed that the Harry Potter films will soon be updated for the latest technology.

This was confirmed by Warner Bros who revealed that they plan to release all eight of the Harry Potter films on 4K UHD Blu-ray later this year.

This could be quite a good option to start with if you are thinking about upgrading your home cinema to 4K.

They will also feature High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, which will allow the films to be shown with a wider colour spectrum and darker blacks.

And they will include support for DTS:X audio, allowing the film to adapt its sound to your specific home speaker layout to provide a better viewing experience.

The 4K UHD versions of the films will be available in Blu-ray Combo packs including the films in 4K with HDR, as well as with a Digital HD version of the film and the special features on top, again in HD, however, these special features will be the same as the previous DVD release.

The latter four film in the series: Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows parts 1 and 2, will be available from March 28th.

Then the first four films will be released at an unspecified time later this year.

We presume this is because the first four require more work to complete and as such, they will take longer to be released.
