According to the studio it has not been possible to convert the film into to 3D in time while retaining the highest possible quality.
“Warner Bros Pictures has made the decision to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in 2D, in both conventional and IMAX theaters, as we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window,” a spokesperson for the studio explained. “Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality.”
The studio however vowed to complete the second part of Deathly Hallows, and the final Harry Potter film, in 3D for its planned release on July 15 next year.
