We’ve known for months now that Lucas plans to convert the Star Wars movies into 3D. Even before the official confirmation we all knew that George Lucas loved money and, in Hollywood these days, 3D should probably be written in dollar signs. $$$D? That feels right.

Now we have an actual release date for the first of the Star Wars films to be unnecessarily converted into the $$$D format. Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox have announced that Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 3D… er I mean Star Wars: The Phantom Menace $$$D will be released in theaters on February 10, 2012. So now you’ll get to see Jar Jar trip over stuff while wearing glasses that dim the picture. Maybe this is a blessing, anything that makes his antics harder to see is probably a good thing. I support the move towards $$$D on this movie George. Smart thinking. Now find some excuse to hand out ear plugs too and this could be a wholly enjoyable experience.

It’ll probably also help that Lucas is starting with the prequels since, those are mostly computer generated effects anyway, and contain very few actual sets or actors. $$$D tends to work best on computer generated movies. If they ever get around to the original trilogy, and let’s hope they don’t. the technology is going to have to progress a lot further for that to look in any way good. Not that whether or not it looks good really had any bearing on whether any of this happens.

Who am I kidding? I’ll be there on February 10, 2012 sitting right in front of you. Meesa sorry.
