A part of movie history is about to be retouched because, according to Lucasfilm spokeswoman Lynne Hale, the six "Star Wars" movies will be re-released in 3D to cinemas in narrative order, beginning with 1999's The Phantom Menace and concluding with 1983's Return of the Jedi.
The Phantom Menace 3D is scheduled to hit theatres in 2012 but there is no release date yet for any of the other sequels. "The process is really extensive, and we want to make sure each of the films gets the attention it needs, so we're not ready to talk about the release patterns of the other films" Hale said.
On the other hand, another important franchise will also get the 3D treatment. According to website Blue Sky Disney, Lucasfilm will next month announce plans to bring its four Indiana Jones movies back to cinemas. This, of course, comes motivated after the incredible success the film "Avatar" has had at the box office worldwide.
I really think it is great that we, and the new generations as well, get the chance to see these wonderful movies all over again, specially with the "Indiana Jones" saga which has never been re-released. As far as the 3D technology is concerned, as long as it makes sense and it goes hand in hand with the plot, audiences will be happy.
What do you think? Is it neccessary to rewatch these films in 3D to appreciate them, or is it just a way for the studios to cash in on the 3D trend?
