Can’t wait to see Jar Jar in 3-D?
You’ll be happy next February. That’s when “Star Wars: Episode I–The Phantom Menance” will hit theaters.
LucasFilm announced the 3-D version of the movie will hit theaters February 10, 2012.
Here’s more details from the press release.
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.
Of course, no word yet on when the films most “Star Wars” fans want to see in 3-D will hit theaters–namely “A New Hope” and “Empire Strikes Back.”
