If you thought that the Star Wars trilogy was going to end at just six episodes, well, you’re about to be proven wrong. “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones” and “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” are going to be spun into 3D format! Yezzir:
The announcement was made just last week via Star Wars’ official Twitter account, excitedly stating that not one, but two WHOLE episodes will be making their way back into theaters a month apart from each other! This is not the first re-release though. If we remember correctly, “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” was converted into 3D and then re-released earlier in February this year.
It did so well (grossing $102 million at the global box office) that now, there’s no stopping them!
Good news to you Jedi fans much?
Lucasfilm Ltd and Twentieth Century Fox also said that the re-release is going to be yet another 3D conversion challenge. And Prime Focus (supervised by Industrial Light & Magic) are the people to take it on with promises that fans and “Jedis” alike will definitely fall in love with the sci-fi saga all over again.
Looks like George Lucas is following through on his promise of ensuring that all of the Star Wars films will be re-released in 3D. We’re not complaining!
“Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones” is slated to be released on 20th September 2013, and “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” will follow closely behind with a debut date of 11th October 2013.
