Harry Potter fans have a new product to lust after for their Christmas/birthday/any-excuse-for-a-special-present list: the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection boxset, out in September.
The 31-disc (yup, count ‘em and weep) boxset features more than four hours of never-before-seen exclusive footage, which you can sample in the clip below.
The featurette, entitled ‘Growing Up’, sees Rupert Grint discussing a run-in he had with Alan Rickman during the early years of shooting. Rickman also shares his memory of the incident.
All-in-all, it further makes the Potter movies look like a pretty fun environment to have grown up in!
