Star Wars set for 3D makeover

Postby sledge » Wed Sep 29, 2010 7:50 pm

George Lucas is set to re-release his six Star Wars films in 3D, beginning in 2012 with The Phantom Menace.

3D versions of the six films have long been rumoured, but Lucas was evidently waiting until there were enough 3D screens available to make the release a sizeable enough event.

Fox, which released all six of the films originally, will also release the 3D versions.

The Phantom Menace, released in 1999, will be first out of the dock in the early months of 2012.

After that, each of the films will be released in order at the same time each consecutive year depending on how well the first re-release sells.

The original movie in the series, A New Hope, and its sequels will not start rolling out until 2015.

Lucas said Avatar convinced him that Star Wars was ready for state-of-the-art 3D treatment. ... ertainment

WOW! more money to made with the re-release of the Star Wars films in 3D next it will be 4D? :lol:
