After releasing Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace last year in 3D and grossing $102 million, George Lucas appears to following through with his promise to release all the Star Wars movies in 3D.
Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones will be released on September 20, 2013 and Star Wars: Episode II – Revenge of the Sith will be released weeks later on October 11, 2013.
It can be assumed that the ORIGINAL Star Wars movies will then be released in 3D. It can be assumed that the most recent “edit” of these movies. While fans may complain about this a little bit, it can also be assumed that all six of the movies will be financially successful.
My own personal thoughts on the matter are mixed. I do enjoy getting to see the Star Wars movies on the big screen again. In this case, bigger is better as it looks awesome. The sound will also be amazing. But then there is the 3D… I am sadly not a huge fan of this. If it was done REALLY well I’d be all for it but I just don’t think the conversion was all that amazing in the first release. I almost felt like it was a pop up book styled 3D. Things didn’t necessarily come forward (especially explosions), but instead were layered. If this doesn’t make sense, ask in the comments and I’ll elaborate further. Other than that criticism, I really enjoyed watching Star Wars again on the big screen… even if it was the Phantom Menace… which is my least favorite of the series. In my humble opinion, it can only go up from there!
Alright, your turn. I want to know what you think about this. Will you go see the upcoming Star Wars movies? What do you think of the 3D conversion? Let me know your thoughts on this!
Make it a GREAT day!
