Default 'Star Wars' saga set for 3D release starting 2012

Big news on the 3D front.

Sources indicate that George Lucas is set on rereleasing the "Star Wars" franchise in new 3D conversions beginning in 2012. Although 3D versions have been rumored for some time, Lucas purportedly was waiting until there were enough screens available to make the release a sizable event.

Fox, which released all six original "Star Wars" films, also would release the 3D versions.

Episode I, "The Phantom Menace," would be first out of star-dock during early 2012. After that, each film would be released in order at the same time in consecutive years, depending on how well the first rerelease does.

Each conversion takes at least a year to complete, with Lucas overseeing the process to make sure each is as perfect as possible. He has said that the "Avatar" experience convinced him that "Star Wars" is ready for the state-of-the-art 3D treatment.

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.
Looks like I'll hold on till 2012 for the 3D versions.

Yeah it will be a LONG time till I get them. But on the other hand at least I know I'll end up with the uncut versions since Lucas already announced that the BD set coming next year will only be the theatrical cuts.

More revisionist crap from Lucas. When will it ever end ? I'm of the school that thinks when a film is done, it's done. Restoration yes, revision no. I still want ANH in it's *original* form, where the stormtroopers never spoke in the first couple of scenes - just like when I saw it in the cinema as a kid.

The what now? There are no "uncut" versions, other than the theatrical versions, which most assuredly will not be released next year, or in 3d. I'm not sure what you're talking about.

Just give me the damn movies on Blu-Ray already!!! I'll still see them in 3D, but I want to own them on BR so I can get rid of my DVDs.
