    I never really cared about Star Wars and putting 3D anywhere in the title isn`t going to change that.

    Why is giving it a 3D option that horrendous? Still the same characters, storyline, actors. Just a different way to view it.

    Unfortunately, 3D movies are here to stay this time. The theaters are suffering, and this is the only thing selling tickets for now.

    Of course, nothing will make episode one not suck. But the other 5 should do better.

    Personally, I`ll wait til I get a 3D capable screen at home and watch them on disc. I`m done with going to the theaters.

    First of all, this is not a reboot. It`s a re-release.

    Secondly, 3-d movies will die off once 4K gets affordable. How many video nerds know what 4K is? lol

    The problem I see is 3D causes loss of depth perception and no one seems to know that in the public. Now most, if not all, of the companies who put out 3D material know this and still want you to buy into the 3D hype. That`s all it is is hype by the way. There have been studies showing that "3D" is a misnomer, we can`t really produce 3D on a 2D screen. Anyone remember the Virtual Boy by Nintendo? They did studies on their 3D, then buried them deep and stopped selling the Virtual Boy. Why? They found what I mentioned earlier. Stop thinking what big business keeps telling you to think and think for yourself, please.

    Also, Nageki, never once has a coporation or any advertisements ever told me what to think about 3D. I went to one by myself and it looked really cool. Of course it`s not 3D. Anyone looking at the picture without glasses can tell you that. But it sure as hell does a good job making it look like it`s 3D. Also, I was born with terrible depth perception.

    Stars wars fan boy here.

    I`m reasonably excited for this but I am just as disappointed that they won`t re-boot the entire series. Yes the landscapes will be cleaner but I want it to look darker, especially episodes 4-6.

    Just look at KOTOR.

    @auburnjunky 4K = 4096 x 2160 resolution (approx 8.85 megapixels), but the technology`s only at 24 FPS compared to 2K`s 48 FPS capability.

    What`d I win for answering your rhetorical question?

    If you can`t make it good, make it 3D. I guess Lucas figures he can do it retroactively.

    Whats the problem? It could be sweet if done right.

    You don`t watch Star Wars for the story, you watch it for Battlecruisers and epic lightsaber battles, of which there are plenty. Yeah, ok, that little kid`s acting sucked jar jar balls, but it was still fricken star wars.

    If you don`t like it, you aren`t a real fan, so shutup and go see Twilight with your sister, pussy.

    The opening scene of Episode III in 3d? I say YES! I mean, the entire movie series was CGI, you know Lucas has the software copies of the entire movies, the conversion to 3D is merely a matter of reprocessing using modern computers, it will be sweet. Its not just treating the old film, it will be reprocessing the CGI using the 3D models used to create the movie in the first place.

    I`m going, and it will be awesome.

    "the only time 3D is alright is when its shot in 3D, which none of the star wars movies were"

    Again, practically 93% of the movie is CGI using 3D models. It won`t be just treating the 2D version, it will be re-run through computers to create a technically different version. Have faith!

    @Goaliejerry
    I don`t know about you but I like a little story between people slapping light sabers together and watching big gray ships fly past my scene. I admit Ep. 1-3 had a bit of story, but it was so horribly thrown together with so many plot holes that it may as well have been nonexistent.

    The first star wars wasn`t even necessary because of the amount of time that occurred between the first and second one; The only important fact that carried over was that they Anakin was a slave and they won a bet to get him.

    Unfortunately, given the huge amount of information they just tell the audience by walking around or sitting around and talking about things that happened between the two movies, they really didn`t need a whole three hour movie to say, "Anakin was a slave."

    Sorry but sitting through them once was torturous enough as it is.

    goaliejerry, the cgi things would be fine, but the people and anything not computer generated would have to be made digitally 3D and it just wont look good. this also means that if they do the originals, they will be horrible...think clash of the titans 3D.

    From the link:

    "Supervised by Industrial Light & Magic, the meticulous conversion is being done with utmost respect for the source material, and with a keen eye for both technological considerations and artistic intentions."

    So, by my interpretation of that statement, they`re assigning the project to a bunch of drunken frat boys with developmental deficiencies?

    Every single one of you failures went and saw every movie. And I would bet dollars to donuts at least half of you own the DVDs of all six. This is the internet; you want to complain about meaningless crap: fine! But I`m calling you out on this one. The only reason you all say the prequel trilogy sucks is because the internet told you to say it. It`s cool to say 1-3 sucks. Makes you losers feel smart. Face it: A New Hope was made by a semi-experienced director with never heard of, hack actors. Ep. 1-3 was made with money, experience, and professional actors.
    You can deny all you want but you know God damn good and well that you drating CAME IN YOUR PANTS when Yoda pulled out his little Light Saber for the first time.
    And I DEFY you to prove otherwise.
