‘Harry Potter’ Set for 3-D Release

Oscar-nominated epic Avatar has inspired another fantasy franchise to convert to 3-D — the next Harry Potter film is soaring into theaters with the popular effects.

James Cameron‘s movie has raked in over $2 billion worldwide in the seven weeks since its release, and the success has already prompted George Lucas to revive his Star Wars films in 3-D.

Now executives at Warner Bros. have confirmed that the technology will be implemented for the final installments of the wizard franchise.

According to The Hollywood ReporterHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, set for release on Nov. 19, and Part 2, set for a summer 2011 release, will feature Daniel Radcliffe and co-stars Rupert Grint and Emma Watson‘s characters in 3-D.

Movie bosses at Warner Bros. will also delay the launch of action fantasy Clash of the Titans by one week to April 2 to convert the film, joining other upcoming 3-D titles including Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore and Guardians of Ga’Hoole.
