Star Wars in 3D

Star Wars fans have something to be excited about again. Just when you thought that the franchise was over, Lucasfilm announced it plans to convert all six "Star Wars" films into 3D format. The films, starting with "The Phantom Menace," are to come out every year from 2012 to 2017, forty years after the original release of the "Star Wars" movie.

George Lucas previously mentioned not initially being a fan of the 3D craze, but changed his mind with the success of “Avatar”, a film made by friend James Cameron.

Some are still skeptical against this move to 3D, as 3D movies do not automatically equate success. So will the wait be worth it?

Lucasfilm certainly has the technological wherewithal to put together the best 3D conversion possible; if anyone can pull this off and still make it look good, it's them.  Now that is something to look forward to two years from now.
