3-D Star Wars

Star Wars in 3-D?

No thanks.

Sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that plans to bring Luke Sykwalker, Darth Vader, and R2D2 into the 3-D world have been in the works for years, though Lucas held off until enough 3-D screens were available in movie theaters to make it a major event.

Industrial Light & Magic is reportedly overseeing the 3-D conversion, and, according to a statement by visual effects supervisor John Knoll obtained by Deadline.com, “We will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience.”

The first of the movies, “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace,” is set for release in 2012, according to the Hollywood Reporter, with the remaining films rolling out in order at the same time in consecutive years.

(Yeah — I’ll probably go…)

One thought on “3-D Star Wars

  1. yeah… i’ll probably go too… :) actually, i’ll probably go see phantom menace, then remember how annoying that movie was, and skip the rest until episode IV is rereleased.
