Apparently, the prequel Obi-Wan Kenobi has not been visiting the theater lately or he would have seen the variety of TPM 3-D marketing materials that are popping up everywhere. According to an article at MSNBC.com, Ewan McGregor was surprised to learn that The Phantom Menace is coming back to theaters in 3-D form. The source is an interview McGregor did with GQ Magazine highlighting the fact that he has three other films set to be released in 2012. Here is the quote snippet from the interview:
"They're actually going to rerelease it into the cinema?" he asks. "Well, that's interesting."
We find it a little more than interesting. We call it exciting!
Before Star Wars: Episode I get's it's 3-D release in February, McGregor can be seen in the new star-studded Steven Soderbergh film Haywire when it releases on January 20th.
