Since Howard the Duck never panned out as a movie franchise it only makes sense that George Lucas would milk the Star Wars movies for all that they are worth . . .
On February the 10th 2012 Lucas will re-release Star Wars: Episode 1 – Phantom Menace, which has been converted into 3-D, in theaters. It will be the first Star Wars movie to be released in this format. For more info on when the other movies will be released in 2-D, check out this link.
Releasing them in this order of course spoils one of cinema’s greatest surprises, namely that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s son, for young kids seeing them for the first time. But hey, rumor has it that Lucas has digitally altered the Phantom Menace so that that little boy can now actually act, so you gotta take the good with the bad, right?
