The Phantom Menace Officially Set For 3D Re-Release

The 3D upconversion of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace has been set for February 10th 2012. That’s less than a year away – or, if you’d rather, almost a year away.

Unless the film is an almighty turkey (in box office terms, because I think we already have some idea of its artistic merits) the subsequent five episodes of Lucas’ saga will follow.

The official press release promises that the conversion is being executed with all due attention to both artistic and technical considerations.

At the same time, however, we’re told that film’s edit won’t be altered in any way. So, something doesn’t add up.

And that is something is the bit about artistic considerations.
