Lucasfilm has been teasing us for years about a 3D release of the Star Wars saga, and apparently Lucas has decided to come back to the trough one more time. All six movies are due to get their time in the theater, starting with The Phantom Menace, due in early 2012.
Lucasfilm as said that they are going to make sure that the conversion process looks as close as possible to a film shot on 3D originally. Variety reports that while ILM is overseeing the process, the conversion will be done by outside vendors. The spokesman from Lucasfilm went on to say that there are no plans to change or fix any of the visual effect on the movies for this release. I don’t know about you, but I’m not entirely sure I want to see Jar-Jar in 3D.
