Harry Potter Extended Editions (Released)
Time

Links to my edits are currently down as I upload a new version of each, v1.5. There are 2 main updates in this version.

  1. CAPTIONS! I have heard from a lot of users wanting captions for these and I finally got some time to put them together. For those that have already downloaded my edits, I will be making the SRT caption files available for you to download so you don’t have to re-download the edits if you don’t want to. With v1.5, the captions are bundled in the M4V file.

  2. Updated audio tracks - In the v1.0 release, I did a dual mono mixdown of audio to 2 channel stereo. While it sounds ok, it was not producing the best sound for those with surround sound systems. So with the testing help of Doctor M (thanks bud!), I did a different mixdown that is an actual stereo mix and works better with surround sound systems.

Those are the only differences. If you have downloaded my edits before and are pleased with them, please hold off downloading the new versions when they are available so it doesn’t kill my hosting sites.

I hope to have links back up by tomorrow and have the caption files available later this week.

I am pleased to announce the release of my 7th Wizarding World extended edition, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Extended Edition. Eight minutes of deleted scenes have been added back into the film.

  • Major Investigation Department - Extended scene of Tina bringing Newt to the MACUSA President
  • Jacob Tenement - Added scene of Jacob going home after being turned down at the bank for a loan.
  • Newt’s Case - Extended scene of Newt taking Jacob through the case and exploring his collection of fantastic beasts
  • MACUSA Cell - Extended scene with Newt and Tina in jail
  • Creocreatura - Added scene after Tina and Newt are able to escape jail. This scene was trimmed due to repeated lines that appear later in the film.
  • Tracking Demiguise - Extended scene of Newt, Tina, Jacob and Queenie trying to recapture the demiguise from Macy’s department store.
  • Suitcase Celebration - Extended scene after all creatures are recaptured. This includes the Ilvermorny school song sung by Tina and Queenie.

I am nearing completion of my extended edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I have some final tweaks that I need to make before it is released. Samples of the edits have been uploaded to my Vimeo channel. It should be ready for release sometime later this month.

I actually made a change to Philosopher’s Stone for my own personal collection. There was one scene in the “official” extended version that always seemed jarring to me. Right before the scene with Dudley, there is a short clip of an owl flying in and perching close to the house. But there is NO music behind it and it sounds horrible. For my personal version, I added music that connects those scenes together. I made some other small changes as well. I have thought of going back and doing my own Chamber edit, but just haven’t done it to this point.

Doctor M,

I haven’t had a chance to look at your edit so far, but I will certainly give it a look. There are definitely some challenges with HBP that I fought with on my edits. I did some green screened scenes in PoA, but I didn’t do much with DH except for some of the green screen areas when the battle begins. At some point once I learn After Effect better I want to see if I can do anything with a couple of scenes that I didn’t work on with these first edits.

Freeform lost the rights to the HP movies on 12/31/17. The rights are currently with NBC Universal and HBO. Currently, HBO has the rights to stream the movies, but they only show the theatrical versions of the films. It is not known at this point whether NBC Universal stations, like USA, will show the theatrical versions or the extended versions when they begin showing them later this year.

Thanks for the feedback on the edits. I have a feeling I know where the gray edges are coming from. I had to insert artificial black bars due to some of the editing I did. I also increased the contrast on those last 3 movies slightly, so the gray bars are likely the original black bars that have been lightened and aren’t fully being covered by the 2.35:1 bars I put on. I can probably put on 2.39:1 bars to fix those. The contrast difference is probably causing the slightly washed out look on colors too. I’ll keep those points in mind for any future edits I may do.

Have you considered combining Deathly Hallows into one film?

I’ve been looking for something like this in high quality.

I am actually working on a combined version of the films now…2 different versions to be exact. I’m working on a regular combination as well as a color corrected version that is brighter. I’m also working on a color corrected version of Half-Blood Prince to remove the overly dark tint on the film. Sample videos can be seen on my Vimeo page.

PLEASE NOTE: These edits are no longer available: https://originaltrilogy.com/post/id/1340189/action/topic#1340189


For a long time, I have wanted to create a set of extended editions to the HP films since it does not look like they will ever be released on DVD/Blu-Ray. With the extended versions coming to an end on FreeForm at the end of the year, I have been working for the past few months on putting my own set of extended editions together. My intent on the project was to create a set closely mimicking the FreeForm extended editions, but not matching them.

While these are my first fan edits for a film, I have had video editing experience in the past. I am using Final Cut Pro X as my editor and Adobe Audition for sound editing. The first of my submissions has been approved at FanEdit and will be up on IFDB once everything is finalized to change me over to a FanEditor. These film versions will only have stereo audio, mainly due to me only have stereo for my playback and some of the scenes needing music from the original soundtracks, which was only in stereo. I do plan on working on 5.1 edits in the future. Material for the edits are Blu-Ray rips of the films including the deleted scenes as well as the soundtrack audio files.

PMs can be sent to me to receive download information. You MUST own a legal version of the original movies before downloading. I do not support illegal downloading or viewing of these movies.
