Statement from Warner Bros. Regarding "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1"

LONDON, October 8, 2010 - Warner Bros. Pictures has made the decision to release "Harry Potter and
the Deathly Hallows - Part 1" in 2D, in both conventional and IMAX theaters,
as we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release
date window. 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, and to that end, we are releasing our film
day-and-date on November 19, 2010, as planned. We, in alignment with our
filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that
our audiences enjoy the consummate "Harry Potter" experience.

Producer David Heyman said, "For 10 years, we have worked alongside Alan
and the studio, whose priority has always been to preserve the integrity
of Jo Rowling's books as we have adapted them to the screen, and this
decision reflects that commitment."

Director David Yates added, "This decision, which we completely support,
underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first."

As scheduled, on July 15, 2011, we will deliver to conventional and IMAX
theaters our final installment of the film franchise, "Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows - Part 2," in both 2D and 3D formats.
