'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.

It was so fake looking that I remember laughing out loud in 1983 at the old Glenwood Theater.

There's nothing fake about it. It was all filmed on location. That's what makes it so badass. No friggin bluescreen.

Bullshit, Dane. Nothing holds a candle to Jedi's space scenes. The shit in the prequel trilogy isn't even as cool, and this is a common opinion among Star Wars fans.

And don't even bring up Star Trek.

What looks fake are the actors imposed over the desert setting, especially as the skiff is leaving the Pit of Sarlacc. The burps were stupid as well.

I don't give a crap about what Star Wars fanboys think about ROTJ. I greatly preferred the space battles in ANH and TPM far more than ROTJ.

ROTJ was essentially a remake of ANH, which made it even dumber.

I think the problem with Jedi was the ewoks. If they'd stuck to the original plan and had it be wookies, that film would be viewed in a completely different way.

I absolutely love the end of it, though, the way the three separate storylines play out in unison, woven together by what I think are some of John Williams' best moments.

The movie as a whole is the weakest of the three, but that final act is epic.

What was really stupid is the fact they made a hole big enough to fly the falcon through. The first Death Star was harder to destroy.

As far as pure SFX goes, the space battle in RotJ was unmatched for its time, and it holds up well today. That started with Empire, watching the Falcon go through the asteroid field with the TIE fighters in tow.

As far as the action sequence in the desert goes, it was cool when I was 13 and watching it, but pretty bad in retrospect. The missed kick by Luke, the slow, methodical choreography of the fight itself, the fact that Luke should have been blown to bits by all the mercenaries with blasters....

Jedi would have been ten times better if it had been Wookies instead of Ewoks. The first part of Jedi is pretty cool, but the Ewoks keep it from totally awesome. Jedi is my least favorite of the original trilogy (Empire is by far my favorite.)

The space battle most certainly has held its own over time....the sarlacc pit, not so much. I would agree with that.
