Lucasfilm Ltd. and 20th Century Fox announced today that the 3D version of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace will debut in theaters on Feb. 10, 2012. So start forming those lines now!
Long-circulating rumors that 3D conversions of the complete Star Wars saga would see theatrical release were finally confirmed in late September, when it was revealed one movie will be released each year, meaning we’ll see Return of the Jedi in 3D in … 2017?
According to the Star Wars website, Industrial Light & Magic is supervising the 3D conversion, which “is being done with utmost respect for the source material, and with a keen eye for both technological considerations and artistic intentions.”
“Star Wars is perfectly suited to the immersive 3D theatrical experience,” the announcement states, “and Episode I delivers some of the saga’s most stunning and spectacular sequences — from the Naboo invasion to the Tatooine Podraces to the climactic lightsaber battle between Darth Maul and the Jedi.”
