Confirmed: STAR WARS Trilogies Headed For 3D Makeover

September 29, 2010

EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE will be the first of the 6 STAR WARS movies to be converted into 3D


Source: DailyMail.co.uk, ComingSoon.net

As previously posted on THRALL WORLD earlier this year, Lucas has been jonesing to upgrade the dual trilogies on the heels of the success of AVATAR.

Director and franchise owner George Lucas has confirmed all six [STAR WARS] films in the series will be converted into 3D.

Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is expected to be released in 2012, with the rest to follow.

Then again, we all saw the mediocre after-the-fact 3D conversion of the CLASH OF THE TITANS remake. Lucasfilm seems aware of the potential for a let down:

“Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right,” said John Knoll, Visual Effects Supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. “It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results. For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience.”

Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures are moving ahead with a sequel to Clash of the Titans, which the studio would like as early as spring, 2012.

Greg Berlanti will write the story and the studio is already canvassing the agencies for a writer and director who can whip the movie into shape to shoot before Worthington makes Avatar 2. Leterrier will remain peripherally involved as executive producer.
