Stars Wars 3D conversions set for 2012; “Phantom Menace” first


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We are going to have a lot of “Star Wars” activity over the next few years. George Lucas’ six sci-fi thrillers will be making their long-awaited debut on Blu-ray in September 2011. And a few months later, the “prequels” will start screening in local theaters … in 3D.

20th Century Fox has circled a date for “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.” The first of Lucas’ prequel trilogy will hit theaters on Feb. 10, 2012, the studio confirmed in a release.

More from the presser:

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.

No dates yet on the remaining 3D conversions of Lucas’ films. Perhaps Fox is waiting to see how “Phantom Menace” plays with the fans. Knowing Lucas’ devotees, however, it should make bank for the studio, leading to “Attack of the Clones” in 3D shortly after.
