The first of the Star Wars 3D movies has officially be given its release date! And it's the one most Star Wars fans really don't care for... Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox will release the movie on February 10, 2012. As much as I hated this movie, I might actually end up seeing it in 3D. It will be very hard to ignore. That's one thing I hate about being a hardcore Star Wars fan--I keep spending money on the franchise. What do you all think?
Here's the official press release:
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (March 3, 2011) – 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.
