LucasFilm will re-release the complete six-film Star Wars saga in 3D starting in 2012 at a clip of one a year beginning with Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
Sources indicate that George Lucas is set to re-release the entire “Star Wars” franchise in new 3D conversions beginning in 2012. Though the 3D versions have been rumored for some time, Lucas was purportedly waiting until there were enough 3D screens available to make the release a sizable enough event.
Fox, which released all six of the original “Star Wars” films, would also release the 3D versions.
Part 1, “The Phantom Menace,” would be first out of star-dock in the early months of 2012. After that, each of the films would be released in order at the same time each consecutive year, depending on how well the first re-release does.
