One of the most exciting features of the release has been locked away on Warner Home Video’s version of “Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone” – the deleted scenes. We tell you how to get to these treasures and how to make your way through the lengthy games that hide these scenes.

First, insert the second disc containing the extra features. Highlight the feature titled “Diagon Alley” and hit enter. You have to hit the correct bricks in order for the door to open. Hit “left,” “up,” “up,” then the “Enter” key. Then “up,” and “Enter.” Then “up,” and “Enter” again. Next hit “right,” “down,” “down,” and “Enter.” Then “down” and “Enter” again. Don’t worry if you mess up, you’ll be allowed to enter anyway. The first step is to access your bank account. Highlight the sign titled “Gringotts” and hit the “Down” arrow key on your remote control to highlight the key on the sign. Then hit “Enter.” Then in the bank, hit “right” and “Enter” to open your vault. Exit the bank and highlight the sign titled “Ollivanders” and hit “Enter.” In here, it doesn’t matter which boxes you choose, the third or fourth try, you will get your wand.

Now that you have your wand you can go to class. Return to the Main Menu, and select the “Classrooms” entry. Then, choose potions from the next menu. Hit “right” to highlight the mortar and pestle and hit “Enter.” You will now be required to choose the correct ingredients for three potions. The first potion is the Sleeping Potion. The correct ingredients are Asphodel and Wormwood, hit “right” twice and “Enter,” then “right” once more and “Enter.” The next question is for the alternative name for Aconite. The answers are Monkshood and Wolfsbane, hit “right” and “Enter,” then “right” twice more then “Enter” to select them. The final potion you have to create is the cure for a boil. The correct ingredients are Snake Fangs and Porcupine Quills. Hit “right” and “Enter,” then “right” three times and “Enter.”

You will then be transported to a room with lots of flying keys where you must select the correct key. Hit “right,” “up,” “up,” “right,” and “Enter” to select the small key with the broken wing. Next, you will have to choose the right potion between seven of them. Hit “right” twice, then “Enter” to select the yellow spherical bottle. You will then finally be transported to the Mirror of Erised, where you can select the sorcerer’s stone, and be transported to the bonus scenes.

This is only one of many ways to get access to these deleted scenes and the disc itself is stuffed with extras and hidden bonuses throughout. Simply try to use your remote control and go on a little excursion yourself and you, too, shall see the many features hiding behind pixie dust, papers, boxes and vials.

There’s another hidden feature on the first disc of the set. Insert it and from the Main Menu press the “right” arrow key on your remote control to highlight the Owl. Press “Enter” now and you will receive your very own invitation to Hogwarts.
