The studio said it could not complete the 3D conversion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 in time for its 19 November UK and US release date.

Warner Bros said it did not want to keep fans waiting for the film.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will still be released in both 2D and 3D on 15 July 2011, it added.

Probably a good call, rushed 3D can sink a movie that might have been otherwise enjoyable in 2D.  I saw Clash of the Titans earlier this year in 2D.  It's not high on my list of favorite fantasy/mythology movies, but from what I've read, I saw the better version.

I'm not real big on the 3D presentation anyways, so I'm not worried about this. Also, CGI films like Shrek and Despicable Me seem to come out much better in 3D than live action movies do. If they release a 3D version later on next year, that will be okay because it work nice to be able to see both films sequentially with little time lapse in between them. It would make a great double feature. ^_^

That really would be a great double feature, if a bit long.  ^^;

For at least the last two Potter films, they had a partial 3D release in IMAX.  They'd convert part of the movie, usually scenes with the best fights, or most impressive visuals.  (They picked the opening scenes of Half-Blood Prince.)  I imagine the "conversion" is easier when a movie is entirely CGI to begin with.

Warner Bros. also has the two Hobbit movies coming up.  Peter Jackson will direct, and they'll be filmed with digital 3D cameras from the beginning.  One advantage of the development taking forever, I guess.
