You've read the books, seen the film and played the game - but now you want more.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone comes out on DVD and video on 11 May and CBBC Newsround Online has seen it!

So what's it like?

Diagon Alley from the film
It has loads of interactive stuff on it and the graphics are far more realistic than the game.

Besides the interviews and being able to watch the film as many times as you want, you can actually be a first year Hogwarts student.

And if you've been sorted into a house on the official website, the DVD will remember that.

Ron in the deleted scene
You can wander around Diagon Alley where you can withdraw your galleons, knuts and sickles from Gringotts.

Then you can take your cash to Ollivander's to try out some wands or into Eeylops Owl Emporium to pick your post-bearing pet.

You can also have a good nose around the Gryffindor common room, sniff around Hagrid's whiffy hut, and sneak up to Harry and Ron's bedroom where you can click on loads of other things.

It's quite game-like because as you click through the various options, you have to collect clues.

They are important and will let you access the seven deleted scenes.

A few adults we spoke to afterwards were a bit disappointed with it. They wanted more interviews and audition out-takes.

But we reckon true Potter fans will go wild for it. Anyone who loves Potter imagines themselves actually at Hogwarts as a student.

With the DVD, that's exactly what you get and it should feed your imagination well into autumn when, with any luck, the next installment comes out!
