Star Wars Movies to Receive 3D Makeover in 2012


The entire Star Wars saga is being converted to 3D and will pop up in theaters sometime around Valentine's Day (February) 2012, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm haven't settled on a specific date just yet, but did say they'll kick things off with "Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace." If it does well in the box office, the other five films will follow a year apart on around the same date. Another option being discussed is releasing the rest the saga at different times throughout the year.

By releasing the 3D remakes early in the year, George Lucas is hoping to get a head start against summertime blockbusters, and also sell related merchandise throughout the year.
