3-D haters rejoice, Harry Potter fans lament! Warner Bros. has scrapped plans to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I in 3-D, citing lack of time before the film's November 19th release date to do a proper steroscopic conversion. Many who are fed up with the horribleness of badly post-converted 3-D releases, like Clash of the Titans and the recently released stinker My Soul to Take, can breathe easy.
It seems Warner Bros. has gotten wise to the idea that to do 3-D right in post, it simply cannot be rushed. For fans who were hoping to see Harry's last adventure in 3-D, don't worry, as the studio still plans to release Part II in three dimensions. For the first half, you're just going to have to settle for 2D IMAX for the time being.
