• Episode I in 3D Theatrical Release Date Announced

      Attachment 24604Lucasfilm 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.

      - So February 10 - right in the middle of winter, so hopefully it will do well with the lack of competition. Less than a year; that's pretty sweet!

        Nice! Hopefully it turns out to be pretty good since it was not originally designed for 3-D.

        It wasn't originally made to be redone in 1997 either but they still mangled..err managed to do that. I had heard about this several years ago from Steve [Sansweet] and I was reluctant back then. If they release it on Blu-Ray in 3D I will jump on that. What about the 'live action' Star Wars TV series I had been hearing about?

        I can't decide if I will go to see these in theaters or not. On the one hand, it's STAR WARS IN THE MOVIE THEATER! On the other . . . I can't see in 3D because I have no depth perception, so I'll be paying extera for a feature that I can't really enjoy. I'll also have the blu ray disks by then.

        As a side issue, how do you read comments under news stories in full? All I see are the avitar icons, the person's name, and a reply button, so if I want to read comments, I have to hit reply so that i have a quote of what others have already said.

        Can't wait to see the movies on the big screen again. Especially in 3-D.
