February 10, 2012: The Day Star Wars: Episode I Will Be in 3-D

For A More Civilized Age

George Lucas‘ “latest perversion of [his] once loved accidental masterpiece” now has a release date.  Starting next February all six Star Wars movies will begin rolling out of the 3-D conversion process and into theaters, starting with The Phantom Menace.

Which I will probably go see.

But I’ll try to get someone else to pay for it.

Also:

Supervised by Industrial Light & Magic, the meticulous conversion is being done with utmost respect for the source material, and with a keen eye for both technological considerations and artistic intentions

Ahahahahaha.
