The new “Harry Potter’’ film won’t be as dimensional as it was supposed to be. Warner Bros. Studios said yesterday that it will be released only in standard 2-D, not 3-D as planned. The studio said it was unable to complete the 3-D conversion of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1’’ in time for its scheduled Nov. 19 release date, and didn’t want to keep fans waiting. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2’’ will be released in both 2-D and 3-D on July 15, 2011.
