Starting in 2012, the Star Wars trilogy will hit theaters again thanks to a new 3D conversion. The Phantom Menace will come first in the early months of 2012. After that, each film would be sent out at the same time each year ... as long audiences are receptive to the idea.
While the 2D-to-3D conversion process has taken some heat recently thanks to the likes of Clash of the Titans and The Last Airbender, even the biggest skeptics will have a hard time passing up Star Wars in 3D. Plus, George Lucas is known for making huge technological breakthroughs, so this event won't be a "rush job."
