‘Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace’ 3D Coming Soon
Yes, you are allowed to cry now. Starwars.com has announced that Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace will be released theatrically in 3D on February 10, 2012.
Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox announced today that the 3D theatrical launch of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace now has an official release date — February 10, 2012! 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.
The plan is release all six films in theaters, once again, in 3D. I can hear George Lucas laughing right…about…now.
