Phantom Menace now has an official release date of February 10th, 2012.  I would guess we'd see each additional movie around the same timeframe each year then.

Not unless they did like the special editions and did subsequent months. But I think what they are doing with 3D is much more complex than adding a couple scenes here and there.

February, there's a way to avoid competition. I'm curious how well it will do.

I gotta wonder if they'll make it to all 6 films before the 3D trend tapers off.

Does the world really need Jar Jar in 3D? I don't think so.

Still it would be interesting to see if they replace the Yoda puppet with the CG version.

The world doesn't need Jar Jar in any D.

We'll likely have already seen it in the BluRay version.

Just wait. That will be someone's signature.

Outwardly, this release looks like it could be a cash grab on both LFL's and Fox's part.

Will there be anything really eye-catching in the 3D release of TPM?  I think the Pod Race sequence has potential.  So does the space battle.  And the underwater sequence on Naboo might be interesting.  I'm not sure about much else though.

I think the lightsabe battle will be cool in 3-D.

I did the math and Colin will be 4 when ANH is released, provided they keep to the one movie per year schedule.  It will be the first movie he sees in the theater!   ;D

Yeah, I would like to see it in 3-D.  They don't really have to add anything that special.  I would just like to see certain things pop out in 3-D.  I could imagine lightsaber fights and blaster effects looking pretty good in 3-D if they get creative with it.  I don't think 3-D is going away anytime soon.  It's going to be around at least another decade or so.  I may even buy a 3-D TV....sometime during the next decade.

I'm stupidly just interested in going to see SW at a theater...  I'm dumb like that I guess, but at this point I don't go see films much...  Star Wars though, I'll make the exception.  Even Episode 1, I'm just interested in going to see a movie.

SW will likely be the first movies I ever seen in 3D too (not counting blue/red glasses type 3-D movies).  I've yet to see any movie in 3-D.

I will say, ever since I saw the IMAX thing on special effects back in the 1990's and they had the Destroyer chasing Leia's Blockade Runner across the screen...  I've wanted to see Star Wars on an IMAX theater screen, 3-D or not.

"Star Wars 3D May Be One and Done"

http://movies.ign.com/articles/117/1176583p1.html

According to this article, which cites and interview with Rick McCallum, although all six have been converted and prepared for release, if the first release (Phantom Menace) "doesn't work" (which I'm guessing means makes money), we may not see the other ones.  Who knows how true this is, but that would stink if TPM was the only release we saw.  Sort of wish they would have started with ANH.  I can understand why they would go in numerical order, but if they wanted the most successful release I think that the original Star Wars would be the best bet.  I'm pretty sure it made (pretty easily) the most of the special edition releases as well, and I think it may be the same way this time around.

It wouldn't make any sense to go through all that work and manpower to not show them... and to start with the weakest films too.

But I think a lot of us want to witness Wedge come at us when he flies through that TIE's debris.

Not looking good for a release of all six movies, if these graphs are any indication.

The updated graph below shows almost every major 3-D release since the beginning of 2009. The ratio of 3-D revenue to 2-D revenue per theater is shown on the Y-axis, and the dotted red line represents the break-even point. The trend that was beginning to take shape last summer has deepened in the last few months. (Data exclude any film that opened at fewer than 1,500 locations, and films with "3-D" in the title, which only a fool would see on a flat screen.)
