Warner Bros. cancels 3D release of “Harry Potter” film
LONDON, ENGLAND — Citing an inability “to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality” in time for its announced November 19 scheduled release in both the US and UK, Warner Brothers has pulled the plug on the 3D release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part I”. The 3D release of Part II is still on track for July, 2011.
“We do not want to disappoint fans who have long anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey.
“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.”
