Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace will be re-released in theaters — in 3-D — on February 10th, 2012. Word is that Lucas will release the other five films in chronological order, one per year, so we’ll end up with Return of the Jedi in 2017. I’m not even going to pretend like I’m not going to at least see the original trilogy — less because of the 3-D, although I imagine if anyone will take care to retrofit a movie in 3-D well, it’ll be George Lucas — but because I just know he’s tinkered with some more effects in shit, and I just gotta know. I’m not proud of this, but I’m not going to lie to myself, either. I can complain all I want, but when Lucas pulls out the big guns — theatrical movies — I just sit back and wait for him to unload all over my face.
Metaphorically speaking, of course. (Via First Showing)
