I haven’t decided if this is a good thing or something to fear, but its been confirmed that George Lucas and his team are giving the Star Wars saga the 3D treatment, and then giving them all another theatrical release.
According to Deadline, ILM’s visual effects supervisor says, “Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right. It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results. For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience.”
Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace is expected to be released theatrically in 2012. A release date has not yet been set for the other five films in the saga. Star Wars creator George Lucas acknowledged publicly earlier this year that the 3D conversion had been stalled but that seeing first Avatar and then Alice In Wonderland become such successes gave him new impetus to make the conversion. Though never a fan of 3D, Lucas has said he’d been looking “for years and years and years” to add 3D to the Star Wars Saga but felt the technology hadn’t measured up until Avatar changed his mind.
