    ABC Family to air 'Harry Potter 7' 1&2

    "Part 1" will premiere on ABC Family in spring 2013

    and "Part 2" in winter 2013.

    As Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 got off to a high-flying start at the box office this weekend, ABC Family has acquired the rights to both parts of the final film in the epic franchise.

    That gives ABC Family the first position for airing last two Potter films on basic cable, which follows the network’s acquisition of the previous titles in the series.

    “Our viewers have come to know ABC Family as the television destination for the ‘Harry Potter’ films,” Tom Zappala, exec vp of program acquisitions at ABC Family. “They’re enormously beloved by our audience and the world over. We’re thrilled to extend our long-standing relationship with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution to include the final two installments.”

    "ABC Family identified very early that the ‘Harry Potter’ movies were destined to become an enormously popular franchise, and they committed to making ABC Family the television home for ‘Harry Potter,’” said Ken Werner, president, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “This strategy has paid huge dividends for them and all ‘Potter’ fans. We are thrilled by our collaboration over the years and excited to extend the relationship through the final two films."

    “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1” will premiere on ABC Family in spring 2013, and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” will debut in winter 2013.

    Hmmmmmm, that gives Warner Bros. enough time to release HP7: Part 1 & 2 on DVD(if that's going to be around) and Blu-ray.

    ^ It gives them MORE than enough time. I expect part 1 to be on DVD/Blu Ray prior to Part 2 being released and I expect Part 2 to be released prior to Xmas 2011.

    I also expect a package special edition Blu Ray with lots of goodies and things we haven't seen yet. (are you listening Warner Bros.). I know there are lots of bonus scenes and it would be nice to see them incorporated into the Blu Ray editions like Peter Jackson did with the LOTR Extended Editions.

    We haven't upgraded any of our HP movies to Blu Ray in anticipation of a complete box set of all the films.
