Harry Potter Criterion Collection Covers

As many of you trek out to the movie theaters this weekend to end the saga, I'm sure many will be thinking about just how great all of the movies are. Warner Bros has continued to improve and deliver better movies each and every time. They're so good, one could say that they even belong in the Criterion Collection. If only. Well, a graphic designer named Patrick Sullivan designed a (faux) set of Criterion covers and cases for the 8-movie set on Tumblr, and it's just gorgeous. Do yourself a big favor and check these out, as the designs truly capture the emotional spirit and heart of the stories in creatively brilliant ways. See all 7 covers below!

Click on any above of visit the Tumblr page for high res. I just love these and they're such a fitting tribute to this unforgettable series of movies, simply because they deserve this kind of love and attention just for being as great as they are, especially to the fans. I would buy this box set in an instant if I could! My favorites would have to be the first three covers, because they establish the world and link the story together so well, plus I just love the way that stag Patronus looks as a cover. I also love the image on the side of the boxes, I think it's just a well-designed setup for a true Harry Potter Criterion Collection. If only it were real…!

The Deathly Hallows cover is amazing!  These are so cool!

They look pretty slick, just those typefaces on the back are annoying because they are modern distressed fonts but I doubt anyone will actually care.

Most of these are great, and I agree with Kevin that the Deathly Hallows is amazing. However, Azkaban is far too bright/overexposed considering it's the first movie with darker themes; and the Half-Blood Prince cover should be the the potions book belonging to the half-blood prince.

Can we please actually get these.

Harry Potter on Criterion? That is a superb joke. Maybe we could get all 14 of the Land Before Time sequels on Criterion as well! In bluray!

someone wasn't hugged enough as a kid....

Hey, if Michael Bay's The Rock and Armageddon can get Criterion releases (and they have), why not Harry Potter?

Can it, Lebowski. Some of us can appreciate the incredible feat that is an 8-movie franchise that not only maintained quality, but increased it with each film. Not to mention the development of characters, constancy of cast (with minimal changes in lieu of death), and beauty of cinematography all make the Potter films an historic franchise. You can't deny that, and these are just beautiful renditions of the esteem some of us think they deserve.

Beautiful, I'd buy them again for sure:-)

The first two where my favorite, haven't seen the last one though, I'm still finishing the book.

Andresfsanc on Jul 16, 2011

Wait, "SorcerOr stone?" that's where the fail itself lies

Toonfed on Jul 17, 2011


Holy crap you're right!!! I totally didn't see that...Nice catch!

Damn right. Should be bloody Philosopher's Stone! 😛  (BTW I got your point as well 😉

ALEX, how do we petition Criterion and WB to do this for real? This is not only amazing artwork, it's an amazing idea!

Ronald Suk on Jul 17, 2011


I like all of it EXCEPT the harry potter face on the side of the dvds....I just don't think that is necessary. It is a gorgeous looking box though! Good Job!

fastfox1306 on Jul 18, 2011


Well done!
