Reports emerge of A New Hope for 3D Movies

Reports emerge of A New Hope for 3D Movies

With my daughter now well and truly a Star Wars-ian (yes, she’s joined the Dark Side) I’d been wondering whether she might one day have the opportunity to see all six films on the big screen. As I see it (having seen it many times on the big screen since it’s release in 1977), that’s the only way to see Lucas’s remake of “The Hidden Fortress” (you heard me) and it’s sequels.

Good news? The “Star Wars” series will indeed be re-issued; 3D versions hit cinemas next year.

The Bad news? “A New Hope” is still four years away.

Oh, more bad news? It’s those Special Editions – complete with CGI Jabba greeting Solo at the Falcon.

Still, it’s all good news when it comes to “Star Wars” right!?

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, “Phantom Menace” in 2012 and then a new “Star Wars” film rolls out each year after that.

Exciting?
