Word has come directly from WB today, that the first part of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film will be released in 3D come its arrival in theaters this November.   The release of a 3D "Deathly Hallows" will appear along side a standard 2D version in theaters as well.  This confirmation came after many rumors circulating around the internet about a possible 3D release for both films.  In a press release, WB noted, in part:
In making the announcement, Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, said, “We are experienced and have been successful in the conversion of 2D to 3D going back to such hits as ‘The Polar Express,’ select scenes in ‘Superman Returns’ and the last two Harry Potter films.”
Fellman continued, “We are confident in the constantly evolving 3D technology, and the results for ‘Clash of the Titans’ will be presented onscreen with the highest-quality images available today.  Based on our track record, we know that audiences are embracing the RealD and IMAX experiences, and we see many opportunities on our film slate to provide moviegoers with these great options at the multiplex.”
Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros. Picture Group, said, “We’re excited about 3D and look forward to bringing a rich, involving visual experience to audiences around the world.”
Additional titles on Warner Bros. Pictures’ 2010 film slate that will be released in 3D (in addition to 2D) include “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” (July), “Guardians of Ga’Hoole” (September) and “Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, Part 1” (November).
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One" is set for release on November 19, 2010.

@lolalu same goes to me. I wish I could watch it on IMAX but… this 3D thing will maybe ruin things… But anyway, I guess we can give it a shot, right? Watch it once on IMAX 3D and if it sucks, watch it next time on a regular theater. We all know we’ll be watching it more than once, right? Maybe 10 times for me will be enough…

I don’t like 3-d movies..so this doesn’t really make me happy… I’ll still probably end up watching it in just the regular format..so..whatever…I watched Avatar non 3-D and it was fine..so yeah.

I agree with the IMAX comment…we won’t be able to see IMAX in 2D. :( But hey, it’ll be fun anyway.

it’s pretty exciting that it’s going to be in 3D. it would be nice to try it even if the whole being in 3D does not work out too well. it would be possible to experience the movie both ways.

Great. Sounds to me like Warners have no faith in their movie and think they need a new selling point to distract people from the script.

Anyway, it’s clearly a fad. By November no-one will care anymore, and they’ll quietly drop the idea.

Well, I have said this before… But, at the risk of being redundant… I prefer 4-D…

I liked Avatar in 3D… but that was shot with new 3D cameras James Cameron helped invent. Taking a movie that was shot in 2D and converting it will never be as good. I mean, think of the 7 Potters scene or the Gringott’s scene if it was filmed with the same cameras that were used in Avatar!!! Then I’d be excited.

In truth, I’ll probably see it in 2d first… and if the 3D reviews are good, see it again in 3D.
