Sorry, No 3D Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows part 1

Excited about the upcoming Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows movie? Planning on watching it on 3D? Well, you better adjust your expectations now because Warner Bros has just cancelled the conversion of The Deathly Hallows part 1 into 3D. This was done so that the November 19 US and UK release will still push through.

So we need put up a new posters now. It's just in 2D.

Potter fans will surely be annoyed with this but it’s either a 3D version of part 1 or the whole world will have to wait for its release a little while longer. But why do keep on saying “No 3D of Part 1”? It’s because Part 2 of The Deathly Hallows will be released on both 3D and 2D versions in July 15, 2011.

Personally, I don’t mind not seeing the 3D version of a film as long as the story is great. As for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1, the 2D version will do just fine for me and my girlfriend.

The previous movie was well, dark, short and quite bland. And to make up for it, Warner Bros is releasing the last installment of the Harry Potter series in two parts, so as to prolong our agony and milk us further for cash.

So Harry Potter fans? What say you of a not seeing a 3D version of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows part 1? Isn’t strange to have the first part in 2D while the second part in 3D?

  1. I think that's great news! Saw Half-Blood Prince in IMAX and the 3D was definitely NOT worth it. With the technology we have right now, 3D should be reserved only for animated films.

    I think my respect for WB has gone up just a wee little bit because of this news. Now, if they could do this for part 2 as well, that would be awesome.

    1. Warner Bros was forced to release HP 7 part 1 in 2D because of time constraints in converting the film into 3D. So if they had more time on their hands, the new movie will also be in 3D.

  2. I was absolutely disappointed. I was really looking forward to seeing the entire film in 3D.

    I was also hoping HP7 will beat Avatar this year as the highest grossing film of all time. The majority of Avatar’s gross come from 3D tickets and chances are really low that Part 1 will make it since there is no 3D! But if HP7 Part 1 beats Avatar even with its 2D format, I would be very much impressed and proud. Besides, Harry Potter tells a more sophisticated and thrilling story. 🙂

  3. Thought HP7 was by far the best of the HP series, definitely. The emotion was just simply rich, and the dark tone gave it such a masterful touch. Well done. And I’m not really sure if 3D would make it that much better. Really, I liked it for the story. If the 3D can really enhance it that much, then so be it, and anyone can tell me “I told you so”.
