Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was famous (or should I say, infamous) for the computer generated character known as Jar Jar Binks, although I found that sentiment on the ground tend to lean more on the negative side. Well, George Lucas is a true blue entrepreneur who is always on the lookout to earn more money (not that he needs it anyway), and hence decided to remaster Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3D glory some time back. I guess it was more of a “testing the water” kind of thing, and it must have been financially successful enough for Lucasfilm to approve 3D remakes of Star Wars Episodes II and III, where they will be released back-to-back in fall next year.
We are looking at September 20 and October 11 release dates, respectively, which is a good thing for fans of the space opera franchise since they need not wait in between episodes, although does this mean the work on remastering both movies in 3D will be a rushed effort? Will you part with your hard earned money to watch both movies in the cinemas when they’re released, or would you prefer to dedicate your financial resources elsewhere?Related articles:
