DVD (digital versatile disc or digital video disc) was a digital optical disc data storage format commercially introduced in 1996. Although the same size as compact discs, DVDs had a higher storage capacity, and were thus used primarily for films and video games.
Behind the scenes
- The depiction of the Granger family owning three shelves of DVDs in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is somewhat anachronistic, as the scene in which they appear is set in the summer of 1997, when the DVD format had been commercially available for less than a year. DVDs were also very expensive at the time, although Mr. and Mrs. Granger, as dentists, could presumably have afforded to be early adopters. They may have also built up a collection so soon after the format's debut by importing foreign releases.
- All eight Harry Potter films have been released on DVD, though some have also been released on other formats, such as VHS and Blu-ray Disc. The Harry Potter DVDs often have a large number of special features, such as deleted scenes, interviews with the actors and filmmakers, interactive games, and other features.
- Harry Potter Interactive DVD Game: Hogwarts Challenge is a Harry Potter video game that was released in the DVD format.
