I second that.

07-08-2006, 09:14 PM
Yup, sounds waykool to me.

07-08-2006, 11:43 PM
Sounds pretty lame. All 3D movies I have seen blew.

07-11-2006, 02:19 PM
ya, most 3-d movies i've seen have been bad also, then again like Astroy said i would enjoy watching star wars in theater another time

07-11-2006, 03:33 PM
And we've got to remember this wont be like other 3d movies its a new technology unseen before so we dont know how it'll loook *well aside from looking 3d*

07-11-2006, 03:54 PM
Yes, so its better than spykids...

Makes me think of yeons ago when Disney gave out some "back in the days new" 3D movie with Michael "Kidlover" Jackson.

Well that I guess that seems promising. I still think he should make 7-9 still.

07-12-2006, 04:30 PM
I bet the Death Star(s) will look purty exploding in three dimensions!

07-12-2006, 05:42 PM

What episodes 7 to 9 ? o_O There are no such plans to make more episodes, the Star Wars saga is over, the story has been told, Anakin has died, so no more episodes.

07-12-2006, 08:12 PM
Well it was an opinion not a fact. Lucas originaly wanted 9 movies. And Anakin dieing has nothing to do with the movies being over. Don't forget there is still Lukes story and the forming of the new order.

07-12-2006, 09:22 PM
Only at one point, Lucas thought he might need 9 movies to tell his story, but he quickly realised he was able to fit his story into 6 episodes. The fact is that Lucas' story ends with RotJ. Star Wars is Anakin's story, so there won't be any more movies.

Much like Astro, I beleive the release of the movies in 3D, is only a good excuse to see the movies again, on a big sceen !

07-13-2006, 01:30 AM
Erm I think that Anakin was the main character in 1-3 and Luke was main character in 4-6, soo the story wasnt all about Anakin.

Commander Obi-Wan
07-13-2006, 02:48 PM
I don't think there is a need for 3 new movies after RotJ.

Mainly that movies were based around Anakin/Darth Vader and his Empire. Luke was sorta of another main character.

07-13-2006, 07:53 PM
From what I remember the old old format of the 9 episode run would be.
1-3 Anakin
4-6 Anakin / Luke
7-9 Luke and his Ewok Lovers(I mean his students).

It also seems that the attraction of Luke to DS is always there in his idea also.

But since GL decides not to do 7-9 quite early on (before he start the whole 1-3 thingy) GL kinda let the EU deal with 7-9 era. And while his original 7-9 probably does not contain that many random stuff(good or bad, we are not talking bout them here) as in the Dark Empire series, the general concept of Luke's DS journey holds.

07-13-2006, 08:27 PM
Well we are going off topic. And by the way I was just saying that GL should make 7-9.

07-13-2006, 09:07 PM
Lucas never wrote a story beyond the events that happen in RotJ. For a moment his story was spread through 9 episodes, but he soon realised he would only need 6 episodes to tell the same story. The story was always about Anakin, his childhood, his pursuing of the force and power, his turn to the darkside, the conflict within him, and ultimately, he turning back to the light and his demise. So it would be impossible for him to "make 7-9" as they don't even exist.

07-17-2006, 09:08 PM
I have done some research on the 3D thing and this is what it is.

A continuation of the series has been planned. Lucas said the series might return, but as a 3D animation series. At April 2005's Celebration III, Lucas stated that, "you know we are working on a 3-D continuation of the pilot series that was on the Cartoon Network, we probably won't start that project for another year." Genndy Tartakovsky will not be involved with the production.

At Comic-Con 2005, several announcements were made on the work on the series. As of July 15, 2005, preproduction had begun on the series, according to Steve Sansweet, head of Lucasfilm fan relations. Sansweet referred to the series as "the next generation of the Star Wars saga, a cutting edge 30-minute, 3-D computer-animation series based on the Clone Wars that take place between Episode II ... and Episode III." Sansweet described the look of the new series as "a melding of Asian anime with unique 3-D animation styling."

According to another statement by Sansweet, "Over the next several years, Lucasfilm Animation will be hiring a total of about 300 digital artists and others in both California and Singapore locations to produce not only the series, but animated feature films in the years ahead." He said about the series, "to get the series underway, Lucasfilm Animation has hired key production and creative talent to lead the development of its first animation project." Sansweet has said that "a large component of the future of Star Wars and Lucasfilm is digital animation." Gail Currey, the Vice President and General Manager of Lucasfilm Animation, has stated that she felt the early treatments for the series were amazing, and that she couldn't wait to share it with Star Wars fans.

At a press conference for Revenge of the Sith, Frank Oz confirmed that he is involved with the series. Many of the actors from the original series are expected to return.

The series is expected to premiere in the fall of 2007

07-17-2006, 10:24 PM
That info is about the TV series in 3D (CG), which we've known about for a while now. But the original trilogy is also comming back to the big screen in 3D, but it's still gonna be the same movie in live action, but the images will have depth, much like the Spy Kids 3D movie.

07-17-2006, 10:43 PM
Ohhhhh ok that makes sense then. Please ignore my last post.

07-18-2006, 05:35 AM
I wonder if they'll have collectible special 3-D Star Wars glasses or just run of the mill ones.

07-19-2006, 11:12 AM
Hey, it's Star Wars, I don't think anyone can mess it up by just adding 3-D...well maybe not very much...

07-19-2006, 11:35 AM
Actually, I think it'd be terrible if they altered a lot of scenes just so 'things' have more opportunities to pop out at you.

07-19-2006, 02:45 PM
^ Ya thats what I was thinking. But again it is not supose to be were you put glasses on. This type of 3D is somthing that is new Technology.

07-19-2006, 10:22 PM
If it's not done right he could REALLY stuff it up. I mean it could just look cheap. But I'm sure with the new technology it should at least run smoothly.

07-20-2006, 06:16 AM
SW in 3D...i'll be sometinhk wonderful. I can imagine scene where 2nd DS just destroyed Rebel cruiser and Mullenium Falcon and other fighters flying away from explosion in 3D...mhm...

And it will be chance to me to finally see OT on big screen!

07-29-2006, 03:50 PM
Imagine, the battle over Coruscant in 3D :). That would be almost as good as seeing it made entirely out of Lego :p.

07-29-2006, 06:17 PM
... or completely out of cheetos...

Well, 3D thing would look cool, but unfortunately does not help eliminate those bad acting in love scenes in pt, unless they ask them actors to redo bits for the scene, which is unlikely. Though changing the dialogue would work.

08-07-2006, 02:24 PM
i also heard GL is going to make star wars episodes in 3d to show the lives of other less known characters like following boba fett and other jedi like mace windu and stuff

08-07-2006, 04:22 PM

Sounds like crap to me, got any proof?

08-07-2006, 05:04 PM
Well any movie in 3D isn't going to be 3D for the whole time, maybe 20 min. in 3D and 20 min. not in 3D. Even if it were all in 3D, I think it's a crappy idea.

08-08-2006, 01:36 PM
Well, consider that many many scenes in SW PT are in CG making most scenes in 3D won't be too much of a problem.

More like, would the new 3D tech look good enough to make it a wonder?

Great Scott!
08-10-2006, 10:39 PM
Sounds pretty lame. All 3D movies I have seen blew.Ever think it was the movies that blew and not the fact they were in 3D? :rolleyes: And I think the opening credits alone would be awesome in 3D.

08-10-2006, 11:09 PM
i think they should and i agree with Nintendork

08-11-2006, 02:04 PM
Can't hurt...I wouldn't mind seeing the orginal trilogy on big screens again...even if it has enhanced effects...
While I don't think that this was the original vision in George's mind, it still is pretty neat...

Great Scott!
08-12-2006, 12:34 AM
He's never claimed it was, it's just something new they're doing.

08-26-2006, 03:55 PM
Are they using a new technology or just SpyKids technology? If so, which new technology is it?

08-27-2006, 02:49 PM
This could be cheesy, or it could be cool. But yes, seeing the Star Wars trilogy on the big screen again would be fantastic.

The only thing that sours it for me, is that these will most likely be the modified Special Edition: the Special Editions (as released on DVD two years ago).

He'll probably make Hayden Anakin's head HUGE at the end to rub it in that it's been changed from Sebastian Shaw.

I love Star Wars and I'm grateful to the Flanneled One, but leave it to Lucas to put that one dog dropping to ruin the otherwise flawless chocolate cake! ;p

08-27-2006, 03:30 PM
I'd love to see Star Wars in 3D on the big screen. I didn't get the chance to see the OT on the big screen besides the special editions so I'd love for them to put them on the big screen again.

08-27-2006, 03:41 PM
As long as they fix the saber colors, any version is fine by me :p

08-27-2006, 03:46 PM
OR... it could be that we get to see JarJar in OT, in 3D, and maybe even a victory dance to boot.

Well, actually that might be nice too, I think it is bad karma to wish JarJar a painful death under the Empire... JarJar would recieve better treatment under the Vongs.

08-27-2006, 03:49 PM
As long as they fix the saber colors, any version is fine by me :p

Yeah same here.

Uh could someone post a link to this cause I've not read about it...

08-29-2006, 11:25 AM
just google search "Star Wars in 3D". It's not that interesting, you'll probably see it in an article with info about the three TV shows and 7th movie. I'll post an article about episode VII later when I can find it.

08-29-2006, 07:47 PM
7th Movie? Episode VII? We'll need a pretty big wad of evidence for that one, since that's been rumor fodder for years and explicitly denied in the last seven years by Lucas himself (and SuperShadow has been spreading misinformation for at least the last seven years).

09-20-2006, 02:41 PM
Yes i think it would be awsome and to see it on the big screen again and in 3D thats a BIG yes for me

09-20-2006, 05:02 PM
Star Wars: From the Adventures of Jar Jar Binks: In 3-D!


Oooo muey muey, mesa bein' in three dimensions okee day! Disa be bombad!
*steps in 3-D bantha pie* Ooo, ickey poo!

Now if they had make him talk like Donald Duck, or Bing Crosby I could maybe stand him a little more, but that high pitched, argghh voice he has...

01-23-2007, 06:49 PM
I was not born when the original 3 came out so and I never saw the special edition either, any chance to see the original 3 at the theater... of course I will see it.

Carlo El Sanchez
01-24-2007, 02:40 AM
Star Wars is done, you don't need it in 3D.

01-24-2007, 09:54 AM
Well, 3D? what for?

I mean making 3D deathsrats and SSDs and Falcon and what not... has been done a trillion times and game trailers and the like, and seeing it in 3D (kinda like with 3D glasses) won't make it any better except for maybe another awe! at the effects.

I do agree that subtle things like fixing the saber colors and (new) sound glitches would be better. And oh, for the record HAN SHOOTS FIRST.

01-24-2007, 10:32 AM
Twi'leks in 3D!!

07-14-2007, 12:23 PM
Well, at least it is not PT... It would be a Health Hazard to see JarJAr's tongue sticking a mile long out of the screen, to say the least. But yes a Twi'lek 3D show would be nice... hmmm. Oh and a rancor would be divine.

07-14-2007, 01:43 PM
Actually it is the prequel trilogy all six movies are being made into 3D.

07-14-2007, 07:08 PM
It would be like impossible to put Star Wars in 3D, where can they get the tools?

07-14-2007, 07:47 PM
Read the article The biggest event of the weekend was today, sunday the 1st, when the audience had the opportunity of watching footage of the 3D version of Star Wars!!! They showed the first few minutes of Episode IV: A New Hope, including the initial text crawl and most of the assault on the tantive. It was followed by a few scenes of the Millenium Falcon and part of the Coruscant speeder chase sequence of Episode II. It was just amazing. It was like being in the corridors of the tantive, with laser beams flying around you, like watching the movie for the first time again.

The audience went just crazy, everyone was screaming of joy and clapping constantly with every sequence. If just a few minutes is like this, watching a whole movie can be absolutely awesome. After the projection, Rick McCallum offered a Q&A session where he talked about the process of "dimensioning" a 2D movie, and revealed some very interesting facts. They are trying to refine the process to make it faster and cheaper, so they can convert to 3D all the 6 Star Wars Movies by 2009. He also said that Peter Jackson wants to convert the Lord of the Rings trilogy and James Cameron wants to do the same with the Terminator trilogy and Titanic. They are doing this to promote the introduction of Digital and 3D technologies to the cinema theatre owners, so they upgrade their systems and make possible the creation of new 3D movies designed as such rather than converting existing 2D flicks."

07-15-2007, 08:50 AM
Any links just to validate it?

If it's true, I really don't mind seeing SW in 3D.

07-15-2007, 10:45 AM
I've heard rumors of this for a long time. I hope they're true eventually.

07-15-2007, 04:41 PM
TI am really interested in the 2D to 3D converter... Hmmm My vast collection of...errr..."Twi'lek Dancers Interaction Videos" would look much much more interesting with this technology. Hmmm... those "Tchun-Tchin" sticking out of my screen.... :)

Too bad it is not good enough yet for some cheap automated process available on my ancient computers.

08-14-2007, 04:44 PM
I did see an interview one time where George Lucas does explain that the Star Wars story is about Anakin. Irregardless of who the main character is in a particular part of that story.. the story as a whole is about Anakin. His beginning.. his rise.. his fall.. and his redemption. Luke certainly is a big part of the redemption part of the story though. I don't remember where I saw the interview. I'm thinking it might be in one of those interviews that was included for one of the "Re-mastered" releases.

The last movie I saw in 3D was Jaws 3. It blew. I liked it much better regular view. I think you'd get that 3D feeling in IMAX.

Its 3D, even if it sucks, you can still see it on the big screen again.

Now, Princess Leia in Bikini, that's something else completely :naughty:
