    Well, Lucas has been talking about doing them in 3-D publicly since 2005, which was well before the current trend really kicked in hard. I know that a lot of people see this as him jumping on the bandwagon, but I really don't. They've always said that the future releases would be dependent on each one doing well, so this is really nothing new or anything to worry about. If TPM does well, then we'll see AOTC. If it doesn't, then it doesn't. I'm not sure what their measure of success is, but I assume they need to at least regain the conversion expenses (and presumably make more money to be used for future conversions and the TV show). And John Knoll has stated that the originals will be easier to convert to 3-D since they are more simple visually than the prequels; it doesn't seem to be an issue of going through the old digital files and just re-shooting the film as you seem to be thinking.

    I was discussing this in the Star Wars TV thread since I saw the article in there, and I do wonder what Lucas will consider successful, whether it's box office or actual quality of results. Personally, I think it's doomed either way, conversion generally gets panned hard, and a February release probably will fizzle out all on its lonesome.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I think they're doing a February release as an excuse for why no one will be camping out for tickets to see this thing. I may take the soon to be 4 year old to go see it, but I'm certainly not that pumped up about seeing the phantom menace again.
