Hogwarts will remain in 2D...for now
Warner Bros has benched plans to release the final installment of the Harry Potter movie series in 3D, because it would have interfered with the scheduled 2D release.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is on track for its November 19 debut, but if Warner had worked to convert it to 3D it would've had to push that back. The studio confirmed it simply did not have enough time.
"Despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality.
"We do not want to disappoint fans who have long anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey," said Warner Bros in a statement.
However, The Deathly Hallows, the final book in the wizardly novel series, will be broken up into two parts for its movie conversion. Thus, Warner said, it will have enough time to keep Part 2 of the movie in 3D. That film is set for release on July 15, 2011.
So, some bittersweet news for Harry Potter fans. But we have to side with Warner Bros here - if it pushed back the release of the movie simply to make time for the 3D version, there would have been a far greater backlash.
