Star Wars coming to 3D in 2012

The Star Wars Saga in 3D!

September 28, 2010

Lucasfilm Ltd. announced today that the live-action Star Wars Saga will be converted to 3D! There are few movies that lend themselves more perfectly to 3D; from the Death Star trench run to the Tatooine Podrace, the Star Wars Saga has always delivered an entertainment experience that is completely immersive. Presented by Twentieth Century Fox and Lucasfilm Ltd., the cutting edge conversion will take that immersion to the next thrilling level, with Industrial Light & Magic supervising the project. Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is expected to be released theatrically in 2012. A release date has not yet been determined.

"Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right," said John Knoll, Visual Effects Supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. "It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results. For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience."

Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for.

I don't know what everybody has against the first three. Revenge of the Sith and Attack of the Clones were awesome IMO. The Phantom Menace was slow and we had to suffer through Jar Jar Binks, but it also had the best fight scene in the entire saga with Darth Maul(sp?).

I think I'm already getting tired of this 3D fad. I'm just waiting for the Star Wars Blu-rays to hit the shelves next year.

Oh God, I can't believe you said that. I'd rather have George Lucas shit on my head than watch that crap again. He can't write a fucking script to save his life. The fucking script sounded like I wrote it!!

Doesn't Lucas have enough money. I like star wars but damn, this is just too much. I'm not wasting my time to see a 1970 flick in 3D.

They will convert these movie to every new format that comes along. There is a big enough fan base out there to give them a reason to.

I am not even sure I have ever seen the originals in their original form. By the time I saw the first three, lucas had edited it to add the CGI crap. And I am 28.

Agree'd! It's very annoying now. I can imagine how many past movies they will re-release with 3-D!

That's crazy considering he wrote the originals too.

It is crazy, the originals weren't fantastic but they weren't shit either. The newer movies completely suck. Hell, the Clone Wars cartoon is better than the movies! That is part of my problem is the difference between the old versus new. I think a big part of that is that he tried to put too much of the story into each of the newer movies.

Actually, Lucas provided the story for Empire and Return, but another guy helped write the screen plays for those.
