I've seen Avatar in 3D, which was needless to say the best display, but I also caught the Toy Story double feature in 3D last year, and I know you can't compare animated to live action, but the re-do was really well done for those 2.

Bottom line, I'm psyched that the saga will be back in theaters, mainly so I can take my kids to see it in theater, by the time the get around to OT (2015  ::)) my son will be the perfect age to enjoy it....

You get better experience if the movie is shot in 3D and not upconverted.  I hope they will do it right for SW.  Also, this is not your old 3D. Can't believe you guys missed out on Avatar.  That sets the bar for all other 3D movies.  I hate gimmicky 3D movies.

My question is this:  how do you physically feel after the movie, having removed the 3-D glasses?

I felt perfectly fine.  With Avatar they didn't go over the top with the 3D, it kind of felt like you were imersed in the film.  It was a great experience and didn't feel like some of the Universal themed rides or anything like that.

I'm thinking the Prequels might look better than the OT in 3-D.  I'm trying to think of good OT sequences.......Trench Run, Asteroid Field, Superstructure.

PT has got the Pod Race, Clone War, Open shot of ROTS, Mustafar.

I haven't seen Avatar - I guess I should have in the theater. But when I saw the 3-d Terminator theme ride @ Universal Studios back in 2003 or 2004, I thought it was awesome - so I think I'm going to love the 3-d stuff.

I saw Avatar in 3d and a few of the kids movies with my kids and it was like night and day.  The 3d Avatar was unreal.  No annoying focus problems etc.  But the kids movies were not as clear.  It was a totally different experience.

I saw Avatar in 3D Imax and it was one of the best movie experiences I ever had.  If SW comes close to that it will be awesome.

Same here. Haven't even look at the Anna Kournikova issue of Maxim that's in 3-d. Star Wars will be a must for me though - even the prequels, although I just wish they'd skip those!

With this whole 3-D craze going on, I have yet to go see a single 3-D release in the theater.  Haven't gone to see Avatar or anything else.  The physical disorientation alone is a bit much to deal with.

Wish they would skip right to the original trilogy though.

Star Wars in 3D....

The Star Wars Saga is Coming in 3D!
Source: Lucasfilm Ltd. September 29, 2010


Lucasfilm Ltd. announced today that the live-action "Star Wars" saga will be converted to 3D.

"There are few movies that lend themselves more perfectly to 3D; from the Death Star trench run to the Tatooine Podrace, the 'Star Wars Saga' has always delivered an entertainment experience that is completely immersive," said the statement.

Presented by Twentieth Century Fox and Lucasfilm Ltd., the "cutting edge conversion" will be supervised by Industrial Light & Magic.

Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is expected to be released theatrically in 2012. A release date has not yet been determined.

"Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right," said John Knoll, Visual Effects Supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. "It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results. For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience."
