Harry Potter Films To Get 3D Re-Release?
We don’t to get our hopes up just yet but we thought you ought to know that there are conversations going on right now about a possible 3D conversion for all of the Harry Potter movies.
And we’d only just calmed down from hearing that the Deathly Hallows will be in an extra dimension. We must stress that it is NOT confirmed that we’re getting a completely 3D series, but it’s a possibility.
MTV spoke to Potter producer David Heyman about a 3D conversion.
Those discussions haven’t yet happened, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time. You know what? I actually shouldn’t say that. Who knows? It would be great. You can never tell. I hope so.
Well that gives us a 50/50 chance, right? Not everyone is jazzed about the constant 3D conversions of movies but come on, wouldn’t you want to see the Basilisk from The Chamber of Secrets in 3D? Or the Triwizard tournament tasks from The Goblet of Fire?
Admittedly, the CGI effects in the first few movies weren’t amazing and could do with a touch up but still, it would be cool to have all the movies in 3D.
On converting the Deathly Hallows Part I, Heyman seems confident that it’ll look fantastic in 3D.
Frankly, we are still in the process of discussing methodology, but clearly one of the advantages we have is that we have quite a long time before the release of the film. So we have quite a lot of time to work and hone and hopefully perfect each and every sequence. We are not on a compressed schedule. This is something that was built in very early on, and we think we will achieve the very best quality we can.
If you’re wondering why they didn’t shoot in 3D in the first place then Heyman’s got the answer. I think that there’s no question that shooting a film in 3-D is a great thing. I think it was just impractical.
It would have taken much, much too long. Shooting in 3-D is slower. Some people say shooting in 3-D is the only way to go, and some people are more open to the other. It’ll be interesting as it develops to see whether shooting in 3-D becomes the norm or not, because clearly it’s more expensive, partly because shooting takes longer.
