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.

I wasn’t happy about the idea of 3D, so I’m just glad we have a choice.

When is Leaky going to start the DH1 countdown?

I think I’ll see it in 2D at midnight, and then the day it comes out I’ll see it in 3D =]

It might not be so bad. At the very least it gives everyone a good excuse to watch the movie twice on the opening weekend. ;) I think it’s worth checking out.

hp 5 was weird looking in 3d, not such good graphics. hope this isn’t like that. also it will bug me so much wearing glasses for 2 and a half hours. but i’m shure the whole thing will be 3d cause avatar was, so now EVERYTHING will be.

well i can’t say i’m a big fan of making the film 3-D. i feel like i’ll probably get sick (since i got sick in the IMAX), but obviously i have to see it and get the whole HP experience. i plan on seeing it in 2-D, as well.

It will be nice to have the option to see it both in 3D and 2D =D Im sure I’ll love it in both formats. I saw HBP in 3D although that was like 15 minutes.

Would it be the full film in 3D or just selected scenes like the last film? The 3D of the last film was AMAZING but pretty lousy because there was only about 15 mins of it. :\

I’m glad they’re releasing a 2D version as well. 3D movies are overpriced and I hate those darn glasses!! :-\
