It looks like the trailer has shown up online:

The Phantom Menace 3D

Even though it is TPM, and I've never been to a 3D movie (or felt the need to), I have to admit I'm kind of excited that Star Wars will be on the big screen again.

That trailer actually makes TPM look good.

Some new posters for TPM 3D have shown up online:

I don't know what it is, but I'm sort of getting excited to see this again.  Sure, I've got it at home in multiple versions, and it is my least favorite of the Saga, but maybe it is just the nostalgia of 1999 kicking in.  There are definitely things I like about the movie too, but I just remember that anticipation going into May of '99, the return of Star Wars.  Plus, it is just kind of cool to see the SW movies on the big screen again - 3D or not.

I was really disappointed in what the Phantom Menace had to offer when it was released, but it's really grown on me over the years. I'm looking forward to watching it at the cinema and actually enjoying it.

Is this going to be shown in the 2nd dimension as well so I don't have to pay an extra $5 or whatever to see it in a theatre?  I'm not big on this 3D craze but iirc other movies have been released in both formats.

Would have been nice if Lucas could have gone back and completely edited JarJar out of the movie, but I'll take what I can get.

I saw the Preview at the movies this weekend...looks ok, lots of lightsabers coming at your face and ship debris, etc.

The whole thing is just a silly gimmick.

I'm actually pretty jazzed for this. I want to see what a lightsaber looks like in 3D. Been kind of a sucker for 3D since Avatar.

Those posters are great. The red one with the Maul 'saber and the character's faces is my new desktop.  :)

I'm actually fairly looking forward to this, too.  Mainly because I've never seen a 3D movie, so this is a good place to start.

I saw the trailer for this as well when we took our daughter to see Beauty and the Beast this past weekend.  That was actually my first 3D movie, but I thought the trailer looked pretty good as well.  I remember seeing an interview on G4 with Lucas sometime last year, where he mentioned he wanted the 3D to be more an "immersive" sort of thing, and not just "stuff coming at your face" or something along those lines.  I'm kind of excited for it as well.  Seeing the clips, posters, and Maul's face everywhere makes me nostalgic for early 1999 anticipating the return of SW.

I haven't seen any, but I sure am seeing a lot of product tie-ins.  Seems like the marketing strategy this time around is to partner with other companies/products to share the cost of building awareness.  See the barking dogs for a great example.

Yeah, I can't say that I've really seen any commercials either, but I've noticed the product tie-ins as well.  I saw the R2-D2 Verizon commercial a couple times during football yesterday, and our box of Cheerios has a free Star Wars pen inside (we got Jar Jar) and it looks like there is eight of those out there.
