Default European/Canadian HP & the Philosopher's Stone: Castillian + American Spanish dubs?

Hello Everyone.

I had some quick questions for you all. I live in the US and as a Spaniard I was stoked to see the Castilian dub of Harry Potter films 2-5. However, The Sorcerer's Stone was disappointing with just two tracks.

My questions for you are as follow:

1. Was the US version pressed differently due to the differences between it and the British version of the film?

2. As I'll be flying out to Spain for Christmas, are the Philosopher's Stone BDs region-free?

Thank you, I'd like to have the complete saga in Castilian as well as see the British version of the first film.

Thanks in advanced!

all warner titles to this point are region free. I understand that US version is pressed separately to their EU counterpart (because as I know, it has a lot fewer languages).

I own "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" in Canada. I'm not at home right now, but if somebody happen to own the Canadian edition, please check to see if it includes the Castillian audio track or not. I know for a fact the Canadian edition has TONS of audio tracks and subtitle tracks in different languages. I discovered it myself yesterday when I played it on the BD player.

Yeah, it's the international edition. The only place it's not sold is in the USA since they prepared an U.S.-only edition for the US.

No big difference. They only shot the scenes twice if the word, philosopher is mentioned. But the Canadian edition has tons of audio tracks and subtitle tracks compared to the American edition.
