Get Your Wand Ready Magic Fans!
Harry Potter fans all over the world are racing to their local store to buy a copy of ‘The Deathly Hallows Part 2′, which is the last ever Harry Potter movie to be released. But if you’re a tech savvy person who has an Apple ID you don’t have to wait in line because you can buy it from the iTunes store right now. Thanks to the iCloud you can buy it on the go using your iPhone and have it ready to play on your iMac when you get home.
But there’s more to the world of Harry Potter than just the movie, and while you’re at the iTunes store you’ll see most of it. Here are just a few of the best Harry Potter related items at the iTunes store. Note that some of these will not be available in every country, the prices will vary, and you might need parental permission to make a purchase. As always you should double check the price before you click to buy and get permission from a parent or guardian before you buy something.
Without any further ado the most popular of all of the Harry Potter goodies at the iTunes store is of course the movie. Fans are treated to the new movie for a price cheaper than what you’d find in a video store, but for a limited time you can also buy a double pack of the last two movies for a magical AU$29.99; a saving of AU$8! ‘Deathly Hallows Part 2′ also comes with 40 minutes of bonus footage including deleted scenes and iTunes exclusive interviews with the cast and crew. If you want to try before you buy you can rent the first six movies for the low price of AU$3.99 and the most recent ones for AU$5.99.
While the books aren’t yet available at the iBooks store you can relive the wonder of the series in its original form through audio books. Narrated by Stephen Fry, these audio books are the perfect way to enter into the work of Harry Potter once more. Download them today and play them while you’re on the train going to or from work, when you’re going for an afternoon jog, or while you’re falling asleep at night.
There are a lot of Harry Potter games available on the iTunes store but be aware of where you’re spending your money. Some people have managed to put up fake and copyright infringing games online that will charge you a lot of money for something that doesn’t actually have anything to do with Harry Potter. To avoid wasting your money read the reviews of every app and use your common sense. That being said, there are quite a few good official Harry Potter games available at the app store, and one of the best is Lego Harry Potter. This series is a fun twist on the typical video game version of movies and TV series because everything is a Lego and thus miniature version of the real thing. It’s a fun game where you play the adventures that Harry and his friends live in the book, but you can also have your own side missions that differ from the events in the books and movies.
Last but not least, your Harry Potter collection will not be complete if you don’t take a look at the albums available on iTunes. The score of the series has been one of the best selling points for the movie adaptations. Music is such an integral part of any film and the Harry Potter franchise was lucky enough to have such fantastic composers as John Williams, Alexandre Desplat, William Ross, Nicholas Hopper, and Patrick Doyle lead up the orchestras. The music sets the mood for the films in spectacular fashion and you’ll find yourself humming such memorable melodies as Lily’s Theme (‘Deathly Hallows Part 2′), Death of Sirius (‘Order of the Phoenix’), and of course the main theme Prologue (‘Sorcerer’s Stone’).
Speaking of music, there are a few bands on iTunes that have created songs set in the world of Harry Potter as well as their love for the series. Check out The Parselmouths and The Remus Lupins to hear some fantastic original music.
