NEWS: Star Wars 3D Details

The money making machine that is George Lucas has announced that he will release The Phantom Menace next year in glorious 3D ... so we can be disappointed all over again. February 10th 2012 to be exact.

It looks like each year, for the next 6 years, we're going to get all six films playing in all order. I don't think I could sit through all these again but I imagine some people are excited. I'll probably see Empire Strikes Back, maybe Return of the Jedi ... and that's it. Actually, maybe Revenge of the Sith - I quite liked that - did anyone else?

If you can't wait until then, look out for the Blu Rays coming in September.

Anyway, here's what said:

Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox announced today that the 3D theatrical launch of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace now has an official release date — February 10, 2012! Set against the thrilling and exotic backdrop of a “galaxy far, far away,” Star Wars is perfectly suited to the immersive 3D theatrical experience, and Episode I delivers some of the Saga’s most stunning and spectacular sequences — from the Naboo invasion to the Tatooine Podraces to the climactic lightsaber battle between Darth Maul and the Jedi.
Supervised by Industrial Light & Magic, the meticulous conversion is being done with utmost respect for the source material, and with a keen eye for both technological considerations and artistic intentions.
