• 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        It wasn't originally made to be redone in 1997 either but they still mangled..err managed to do that.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.

      I hate that so, so much. It's as bad as trimming down A Charlie Brown Christmas to get in more commercials in the most anti-commercial show ever made.

      I'm going to probably just use R1 figures in my regular movie scenes, like Jyn and Cassian being E7 Resistance troops in the background when Poe lands.
