You probably don’t need to be sitting down for this one, but the announcement was made today that Star Wars would be getting the 3D theatrical treatment starting in 2012 with the chronologically correct Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3D. It is expected that one movie will come out every year until the series finishes in 2018 with Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. You can read more about this story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Although this isn’t surprising, will you be seeing Star Wars retrofitted into 3D? Will our kids be excited about it? Are you going to wait until 2016 for A New Hope to start seeing these in the theater again? Can a movie made in 1977 really be made into 3D well 30+ years later?

    I hope the release the 3-D version on Blu-Ray… one at a time. Then, once all of the single release movies are out, they can offer a Mega Platinum Edition collection. And by 2016 we will have some sort of 4-D television, so they can start all over.

    Gah! I am NOT impressed with this news.

    Neither am I. One issue is they are assuming people will still want to watch 3D movies in 2018. I don’t know if that is true or not.
