'Star Wars' saga set for 3D release starting 2012

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/...92835d50e86a3a



Big news on the 3D front.

Sources indicate that George Lucas is set on rereleasing the "Star Wars" franchise in new 3D conversions beginning in 2012. Although 3D versions have been rumored for some time, Lucas purportedly was waiting until there were enough screens available to make the release a sizable event.

Fox, which released all six original "Star Wars" films, also would release the 3D versions.

Episode I, "The Phantom Menace," would be first out of star-dock during early 2012. After that, each film would be released in order at the same time in consecutive years, depending on how well the first rerelease does.

Each conversion takes at least a year to complete, with Lucas overseeing the process to make sure each is as perfect as possible. He has said that the "Avatar" experience convinced him that "Star Wars" is ready for the state-of-the-art 3D treatment.

Starting with "Phantom Menace," Lucasfilm would use several higher-end conversion houses to work on the project. By late winter or early spring in 2012, the exhibition industry should have all the 3D screens anyone could want for such a release.

At present, pics are limited to 2,000-2,500 3D locations owing to an insufficient installed base of projectors and screens. Movie theaters are adding 3D screens at a clip of 500 a month in the U.S. Foreign exhibitors also are pushing into 3D as quickly as possible now that financing for the installations is flowing.

Also pushing the timetable is a potential breakthrough in 3D TV technology. With Samsung penetrating the market with 50,000-plus 3D-equipped sets and Sony recently sending its version to market, the home-viewing experience could be primed for 3D DVD versions of the films by the time the new 3D theatrical releases have run their course.

Lucas purportedly is lining up the theatrical rereleases as a lead-in to the ultimate home-viewing experience. Beyond that, the property would launch to other 3D media.

In the meantime, Lucas plans a comprehensive Blu-ray Disc set of the six films next year, which would include upgraded picture and sound quality, new deleted scenes and special features.

Outside of First Contact, I thought they were unwatchable, although I really, really enjoyed FC.

First Contact was by far the best movie with TNG. And as I posted in the Movies thread, I caught the climax battle scene in Nemesis and really enjoyed it. Hokie moments to be sure, but I liked it more than I remembered liking it originally (probably since I didn't have to sit through that dune buggy scene, or the whole B4 cluster****).

Forgot about that thread, and I missed the news that Lucas is wanting to continue the storyline. If it turns out to be true, that's great news to be sure. But, I've come to doubt Lucas' ability to write, much less direct. Looks like there's a few years to get it right, so we'll see.....

I loved FC as well, but Plinkett definitely made some valid points about things that didn't make much sense.

As for the rest, I thought Generations was OK. Insurrection was abominably bad, and Nemesis was mostly bad with some redeeming moments.

Insurrection would have made a bad Star Trek episode. They could have done so much more with that movie, especially since it was smack dab in the middle of the DS9 Dominion Wars storyline.

To bad Lucas never spent 1/10 the time on a descent script as he did on effects.

I will have to pass on these.

Actually, the fact that Lawerence Kasdan had nothing to do with the prequels hurt as well. He helped finish the Empire script after Leigh Brackett passed away, and he also had significant input into Return of the Jedi. Leigh Brackett passing away hurt the scripts more than anything....it was her writing that made Empire the best of the films, imo.

Return of the Jedi was garbage, IMO. Outside of the lightsaber battle between Luke & Vader, it's pretty much unwatchable.

The Ewoks were far more annoying than Jar Jar, at least IMO. It was like watching the Muppet Show.

Oh come on! The ewoks were annoying, to be sure, but it had Leia in the golden bikini, a badass space battle, Vader getting offed as he turned good, and a giant diseased vagina in the desert....

The skiff battle is the greatest action setpiece in the Star Wars Trilogy.

The space battle is the greatest space battle in CINEMA history.
