Star Wars - in 3D?

Once again, the title pretty much says it all. Comingsoon.net has learned that George Lucas plans to re-release the Star Wars films (even the most recent trilogy!) with 3D technology.

I'm not the resident Star Wars expert, so I'm not sure how much the films would benefit from 3D, but I guess that depends on just how gimmicky the whole thing is [1]. If we're still wearing those red and blue cardboard glasses by then, I'm probably not going to see it [2].

1. Not that I would pay to see Episodes I-III in 3D anyway.
2. Hopefully by the time this happens, which will be at least a couple of years from now, we will have legitimate 3D glasses that are actually sponsored by brands and don't cost a fortune.

the star wars expert you speak of said...

wow, I don't know if I want to be a part of this sick experiment that Lucas is planning. why not spend this time on making new star wars movies (Ep. VII-IX)

P.S. That pic you used is really sweet, I wish it came in poster size.
