George Lucas wants you back in theaters for all 6 Star Wars in 3D
First with the remastered originals, then the prequels, and now 3D (but will take years for their release). George will try anything to make some extra bank -don't blame him though. His movies have such an appeal to a very large audience. At least the 3D version of Episode I will allow me to virtually punch Jar Jar in the face.
As just about everyone saw coming, Lucasfilm is going to convert all six "Star Wars" films into 3D format. (George Lucas himself told "Access Hollywood" that after years of tinkering with the idea of 3D conversion and not being a fan of the format thus far, the success of "Avatar" was "a new impetus to make that happen.")
The films, starting with "The Phantom Menace," are expected to come out every year starting in 2012 and ending in 2017, which will be the 40th anniversary of the original "Star Wars" release. Though Lucasfilm says it hasn't set exact dates for each release), we suppose it's important that they're shown in chronological order, because the movies are such cliffhangers now, decades later.
But will they be worth the two-to-seven-year wait?
