Bad news to all the Harry Potter fans that expected to see their favorite film in 3-D. The studio has scrapped plans to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in 3-D because they won't have it completed in time to meet the release date.
They have decided to just release it in 2-D.
Warner Bros. released a statement with the announcement.
The statement reads:
Warner Bros Pictures has made the decision to release “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” in 2D, in both conventional and IMAX theaters, as we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey, and to that end, we are releasing our film day-and-date on November 19, 2010 as planned. We, in alignment with our filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that our audiences enjoy the consummate “Harry Potter” experience.
Part 1 might be in 2-D only, but they will have part 2 available in both 2-D and 3-D.
