'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.

There is a book that takes place between Episodes II and III where yoda goes after Dooku during the Clone Wars that develops a bit more of the backstory. Others touched on this, but he was a gifted padawan that got really sick of the light side teachings so he left the academy.

....that was great. If nothing else it stresses than Lucas really needed strong colllaborators to help him flesh out the script and continuity instead of doing everything himself on the prequels.

I'll be curious to see if the original Star Wars films can still draw bigger box office than the prequels upon their rereleases, but more from a self-vindication standpoint than anything, really. No matter what, I hope they all perform because I like the nationwide giant re-release platform and want to see more vintage cinema in real deal big outings, not just exclusive one-evening showings. The more money these things make, the more likely we'll see more of it. Now if we can just get the studios comfortable with 2D re-releases...
Ummm what? The last thing anyone wants is to see theaters crammed with re-releases. JFC

Now that question can be put to rest. Attack of the Clones 3-D hits movie screens September 20, 2013 and Revenge of the Sith follows it a few weeks later, on October 11th.
Any chance you can tell me who won the superbowl?

The Phantom Menace made more than $102 million at the box office and it's pure profit for the studio, Lucasfilm and the movie theater chains.

There will be more that follow this model, as there is another generation of kids that haven't seen these movies in a theater before.

I want to see new and unique stories on the big screen not rehasing old material because it is easy money.

Does anyone really want to see it again? See that again? How many 40 yr old Star Wars fans are going to want to take their kids to see "The Phantom Menace" in the theaters?

Agreed. There are exceptions... but they're very few.

Enough to earn $102 million at the box office. It's already had its run and those are the US Box Office numbers.

Good luck. You're likely looking at Pixar/Dreamworks/Fox animation and Indie films.

Big budget films are ruled by known properties because, well, they're known properties. It's next to impossible to get $200 million in funding for something unfamiliar to the public.

Guys like Jim Cameron and Chris Nolan can pull it off because they're shelling out at least half of the coin necessary (Inception and Avatar, for example).

But... what percentage of those customers were happy with the movie? How many of those people would be willing to pay to see it again?

I mean now... not when the hard core fans saw it over and over, trying to find a reason to like it. That ship has sailed, and it's pretty much universally accepted that the movie sucks.
