Ah, Star Wars in 3-D! You're the big white whale to that dude who wanted to catch said whale. Collectively as Star Wars fans, we're that dude. Numerous new Star Wars 3-D movie rumors have popped up since Avatar started dominating box offices but this time the news comes from The Maker himself. Access Hollywood caught up with Mr. Lucas at the Golden Globes and here is what he had to say...
“I liked it. I make movies like that, [so], I can appreciate what [James Cameron] went through to do it,” George Lucas told Access Hollywood at the HBO Golden Globes party on Sunday.
”[I’m] happy it’s so successful, and worked very well in 3-D,” he continued. “Haven’t been a big fan of 3-D, but that movie definitely improves in (the field of) 3-D."
And what it means for Star Wars:
“We’ve been looking for years and years and years of trying to take ‘Star Wars’ and put it in 3-D,” George explained to Access. “But, [the] technology hasn’t been there. We’ve been struggling with it, but I think this will be a new impetus to make that happen.”
So there you have it! When? I don't know. How? I'm not that smart. But it's coming...someday.
