Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s stone was a movie that cultivated a whole new generation of Harry Potter fans.
It has been exactly 20 years since the Sorcerer’s Stone movie was out in Theatres and even the cast members such as Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson have grown into adults.
The novel by J.K Rowling was so popular that it triggered a series of entertainment outlets such as games, movies, theme parks, and many more.
Just like Justice League which had a version of the director’s cut release, Chris Columbus wants to release a 3-hour cut of the Sorcerer’s Stone.
The theatre version of Sorcerer’s Stone was 2 hours and 32 minutes. Initially, the release for the movie was supposed to be 2 hours and 52 minutes but it was cut short as parents felt that the movie was too long.
The film was then cut back a full 30minutes to meet the preference of the parents, but the children love it.
Almost all Harry Potter-related movies last more than 2 hours and if the director cut version is released it will be the first one that almost hits 3 hours.
In an interview conducted by The Wrap, Columbus said that he would love to see the release of the 3-hour cut.
Let’s hope Warner Bros can be a bro and give the green light for the release
Harry Potter is not the only director cut that is coming
Other than Justice League and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the Director of the 2016 hit movie Suicide Squad. As of now, there is no official name for this cut.
The internet is calling it David Ayer’s Suicide Squad with the hashtag #ReleaseTheAyerCut
The theatre version of the movie ran for 2 hours 10 minutes. The cast of the movie such as John Cena who starred as Peace Maker and Joel Kinnaman has also called for the cut to be released.
