I know this article is about Episode I, but if this thing takes off like they are saying, I'm thinking all 6 movies. In 3D. How cool would that be...

I believe that someone earlier expressed the sentiment that leaps to my mind:

"fuck off"

What a joke. Might need a few "minor edits" to make the whole of Star Wars 3d, eh?

Anyone under the age of 12 would probably like Star Wars in 3D....

I love everybody. Lets all smoke some reefer and chill. Hug and kisses for everybody.

3D Star Wars might be fun! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!

I'm sorry, if the idea of watching the Death Star trench run in 3D or the friggin' Speederbike chase in 3D doesn't sound like fun to you..... then reach around and pull the stick out of your ass.
"Among many things I have to be thankful for are you, the fans. I know that some of you haven't liked every single thing that I've done with the saga, and that you have a strong sense of ownership over all things Star Wars. But take that passion and devotion and channel it into a creative project of your own."

I have to agree with Randy I can imagine those and other scenes would look pretty good in 3-D, will I go? it depends if on at a local cinema I will probably go one evening with the wife and it doesnt cost the earth to go in just because its been made into 3-D....

I'd watch the Prequels in 3-D. But the Pixar movies would be more fun for me to watch in 3-D. They probably still have all the 3-D models, animations, etc and could create a real 3-D experience. For Bugs Life, they created a full frame version by rendering the top and bottom that didn't exist in the theatrical version.

Old news. And, perversely, the first thing from Lucasfilm since 1999 that has excited me (just a little). Movie theaters need some kind of value-added proposition to compete with home theaters, and maybe 3D can be it.

I didn't know that, but I did read that they also re-created some scenes completely to take better advantage of the full frame.

Back to the topic - I have a real love/hate relationship with 3D. The trouble is, it's not 3D. It's pseudo-3D as long as you keep your head perfectly still, and as long as you can stand the headaches, which for me is about 5 minutes.

Hey George, I got an idea:

If you insist on pushing the technological envelope of digital cinema, MAKE A D*MN NEW MOVIE TO SCREW WITH!!
Please stop re-inventing the classic trilogy.

Ya, I know what you're saying. I watched some LooneyToons Marvin the Martian movie in 3D on an IMAX screen at the amusement park this weekend. The glasses were thin plastic, low quality stuff. And the screen was basically a double-image thing that the glasses corrected as if you were looking at a MagicEye picture crosseyed. The actual "plastic lenses" that you look thru didn't seem that remarkable at all, they just looked like clear plastic lenses. I'm sure it has something to do with vertical vs. horizontal filament and the way that an image is interpreted when seeing both at the same time.

In the end, yeah, you get a headache and you feel like you've been crosseyed the entire time. Might as well bang your forehead into a wall for 2 hours, it'd give the same "special effects."

I'm really hoping that this 3D thing won't be anything like what I just experienced on Saturday. I really, really, really hope.

As I've said before, if there is no remastered OOT, the my answer is, "that's nice." The OOT is more than good enough to speak for itself. If you milk the cash cow too much it may run dry.
