Lurkio! (or whatever it is they shout all the time) Fancy some Potter on Blu Ray?

Scorchio? Takethatio? Spotify? Bollocksiarmus? Ah, it's been years since I read the books and I gave up on the films a long time ago. But I believe they are still popular amongst the young 'uns, whatever it is the young wizards say when they're blasting each other with special effects. Anyhoo, the second-to-lastest Potterathon is coming to Blu Ray soon, so you can watch them Twatify each other in glorious high definition. And if you're hip enough to join them on Facebook (or, let's face it, gullible enough to believe that Daniel Radcliffe is now your friend if you become friends with the film page) you can be in with the chance to get said disc for free. That's right, free! God help you.

To celebrate the 60-day countdown to the Blu-ray and DVD release of the blockbuster film “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1,” Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Granger, announced yesterday that 100 Limited Edition Blu-rays will be given away via the Harry Potter UK page on Facebook. The specially created Limited Editions will only be available to fans entering the promotion through the Harry Potter UK page on Facebook.

The official Harry Potter UK page on Facebook currently has 928,325 fans, breaking all previously held records for a UK Facebook film page.

In “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” Harry, Ron and Hermione set out to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s power – the Horcruxes. On their own and on the run, the three must rely on one another more than ever…but Dark Forces threaten to tear them apart. Part 2 in this epic finale to the Harry Potter film series will be in cinemas from July 15th 2011.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is directed by David Yates, who also helmed the blockbusters “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” David Heyman, the producer of all of the Harry Potter films, produced the film, together with David Barron. Screenwriter Steve Kloves adapted the screenplay, based on the book by J.K. Rowling. Lionel Wigram is the executive producer.

Heading the cast, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprise their roles as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. The film’s ensemble cast also includes Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Tom Felton, Ralph Fiennes, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Griffiths, John Hurt, Jason Isaacs, Helen McCrory, Bill Nighy, Miranda Richardson, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Timothy Spall, Imelda Staunton, David Thewlis, Julie Walters and Bonnie Wright.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” will be released on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK on 11th April .
