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?
