'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.

I enjoyed the prequels, but holy crap the Yoda puppet in Ep1 was horrible. I just don't understand how you can go from the most realistic looking puppet in film history (Yoda in Ep5 and Ep6) to that piece of crap. I fully support covering him up with CGI.

Lucas should just go ahead and CGI over Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. You know he probably has thought about it.

If it fails miserably, we will never get to the original trilogy...Lucas is banking on fans supporting the first three 3D release to insure that the original trilogy makes it to the big screen.

I only looked out the projection booth window for a minute but, from what I saw, the "3D" is poor and does nothing to add anything to the film. It's still a crap-ass stupid movie. As for how it'll do, we had four midnight sneaks last night:

Safe House: around 115 people
Phantom Crapfest: around 80 people
The Vow: around 40 people
Journey 2 3D: 0 people (LOL)

I lost count of the number of times I saw Star Wars in the theater. It played for over a year and a half and I saw it as often as my mom would drop me off. So if I never see it on the big screen again, that's okay, really. I've seen it plenty.

Yea, it's not meant for me and you. Lucas is banking on a new generation of fans to support these. Kind of how Disney does with its re releases.

Wow, kind so surprised by Journey. I'm taking my son tonight to see it, so I guess I won't have to fight any crowds. LOL

So....

Han Never Shot First, Claims Fomenting George Lucas, as if It Even Matters Anymore

It had been done in all close-ups and it was confusing about who did what to whom. I put a little wider shot in there that made it clear that Greedo is the one who shot first, but everyone wanted to think that Han shot first, because they wanted to think that he actually just gunned him down."
