  Potter DVD smashes fastest-selling record
Updated 14 April 2003, 17.15
The Chamber of Secrets is the fastest-selling DVD in the UK
The Chamber of Secrets DVD has sold faster than a firebolt.

In fact, Potter fans have snapped up so many copies of the second movie that it's outsold the previous record-holder.

And that was Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone!

Midnight

Dobby stars in the second Potter movie
The Chamber of Secrets is now the fastest-selling DVD in UK history.

It sold more than 1,012,000 copies in the first two days.

Some shops even opened up at midnight to cope with the thousands of fans who wanted to buy it straight away.

Deleted scenes

The film was an instant smash hit when it was released at the cinema in November 2002.

Kenneth Branagh as Gilderoy Lockhart
It made a whopping 18.8m in its first weekend in the UK and Ireland.

The DVD contains loads of extra bits, like deleted scenes, interviews with JK Rowling and director Chris Columbus, and a car game called the Forbidden Forest.
