Well, it has been a long time coming. Star Wars fans should not be surprised to hear that the entire saga will be released in 3D. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the films will be rereleased in 3D beginning in 2012, starting with Episode I: The Phantom Menace. After that, each film would be released in order at the same time in consecutive years, depending on how well the first rerelease does.
In the meantime, Lucas plans a comprehensive Blu-ray Disc set of the six films next year, which would include upgraded picture and sound quality, new deleted scenes and special features.
If the movies stay on schedule, and are released every year, then Return of the Jedi will be released in 2017. And that means fanboys will finally get to see the moment they’ve been waiting for. Jabba the Hutt in 3D!!! Oh yeah, and Princess Lea will be in her slave outfit in 3D.
