"Deathly Hollows" : Not to be Released in 3D

According to Variety, Warner Bros. will not be releasing "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1" in 3D. They will, however, release it in IMAX along with traditional 2D. Warner Bros. Says that they wouldn't be able to release the film with the "highest standards of quality" in time for its release next month.

In a statement, the studio said, "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."

David Heyman, producer of the film, said, "For 10 years, we have worked alongside Alan Horn and the studio, whose priority has always been to preserve the integrity of Jo Rowling's books as we have adapted them to the screen, and this decision reflects that commitment."

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" will be released on July 15, 2011 and will open in 2D and 3D.
