Inevitable New Star Wars In 3-D Rumors

Posted By Mike on January 11, 2010

With Avatar breaking records and barrelling ahead though fantastic word of mouth, it was only a matter of time before new rumors of Star Wars in 3-D started coming out. Let's face it, though nothing has been announced, it's not beyond the realm of possibility especially considering Avatar's success and The Maker's soft spot for new technology. The latest rumors (calling them rumors until we hear something official) come from TimesOnline.co.uk. With the exception of the time-frame mentioned, there really isn't anything groundbreaking in the article, but just a rehash of previous rumors prior to Avatar's release.

From the article:

"Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings, said last spring that he wanted to reissue the trilogy in 3-D if Avatar persuaded enough cinemas to put in new 3-D projectors. Last week technicians at Weta, the production company that had worked on the trilogy, said they had experimented with 3-D battle scenes and proclaimed them to be “gob-smacking”.

The Lord of the Rings is expected to be re-released after Jackson has finished producing the two-part version of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit over the next two years. This would mean that a 3-D version of The Fellowship of the Ring, the first part of the trilogy, could be in cinemas by Christmas 2012.

It may be beaten to the screen by a revamped version of Star Wars. George Lucas, the director, spent $13m filming the original in 1976, added special effects in 1997 and 2004, and will now spend another $10m to change it into a 3-D spectacular.

“George cannot leave it alone,” said an associate. “He is salivating at the opportunity to play with it again. This time the Death Star is really going to explode all over the audience and leave them gasping.”'



Of course, we'll let you know if there is ever an official announcement of the long awaited Star Wars saga in 3-D. Let's face it, once it's announced, you won't be able to miss the news anyway. Click here for the full read of the source article.


Thanks to Darth Doug for the link!
