Actually they were all shot on 35mm film which can be restored up to 4K (maybe even 8K if I'm not mistaken), it just has to be mastered at that level, most 4K releases these days are finished at a 2K master and then put out on disc, so unless Warner Bros have created new masters of the films, they'll be 2K upscales.

The Harry potter films were mastered in 2k so these will be upscaled

That's just bad advice, all of the reviews of the Harry Potter films currently released in 4K Ultra HD HDR point to them looking amazing and the details really being noticeable, along with the HDR and a DTS:X track, which will make the exerience even greater, especially for Harry Potter fans (All 100 million of them). This is a worthy purchase and if you split that price out per film, it just gets better. Also the 2K upscaling must be decent, and it was originally shot in Super 35.

Also to note, I think that using the word upscale is somewhat misleading, as many people associate that with their TV upscaling images, and this differs massively from the actual process that takes place when a movie is remastered, a lot of work goes into it, having recently watched the Terminator 2 remaster, it is certainly worth it.

This happens with every new format. Lack of 4k content so to fill the library with a load of at best 2 k mastered films upscaled to 4k it happened with VHS to DVD, DVD to HD. It's a rip off.
I have a couple of uhd movies that I own in HD also. Can I tell the difference between the uhd versions or my tv or uhd player upscaling the HD version. No I can't. So why and I going to spend £80 on something that I already own in its native HD format. I actual prefer watching this on my HD TV.
If it's mastered in 4k. I'll buy it in UHD. If not I won't waste my money on upscaled content. Because no matter how you word it that's all it is upscaled

Saying that you see no difference between 2k and remastered 4k is just silly, unless your watching these on a 32 inch TV ... I've already stated the main differences, apart from more detail and vivid images, but for anyone curious, just Google it, having, I do agree with you, in that they really should name these something else, as 4K films should be from 4K masters, or they should make people aware of this before purchasing, possibly this is just for die hard potter fans, but I for one will be buying this (when it comes down in price)

Actually I watch it on a Panasonic 65" oled Tv.
You can't add more detail as that would mean adding more pixels. It was mastered in 2k. All you can do is upscale. And my TV does a amazing Job at upscaling. So I'll stick with my HD version

Its not a case of it upscaling like a TV does, its completely different, if possible compare the Blu ray version against a friends 4K version like i did last week, and you will see the clear difference in both quality and colour, for ref im watching on 65 sony with the latest extreme chip, so the basic upscaling on my TV is the best available

Well I tend to disagree with regards to the sony extreme chip being the best available but I'm not getting into that discussion. As for comparing them I may have a bit of trouble doing that as this ain't out until the 27th. I have compared other movies and I just don't see it. A 4k mastered film now that I can clearly see

The individual 4K Ultra HD Blu Rays have been out for quite a white now, almost all experts agree that the X1 Extreme chip is the best at upscaling, Sony have always been the leaders. Also wouldn't touch Panasonic with a barge pole due to their FireOS no longer being supported or updated (dead).
