By on Sep 29, 2010 in Entertainment, Movies Comments

The Star Wars episodes, starting with Episode 1: The Phantom Menace will again be shown in theaters in 3D films stating 2012, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the reports, Fox, which released all six original “Star Wars” films, also would release the 3D versions.

The upcoming project for the George Lucas films is set to start with Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, where several higher-end conversion houses to work will be used.

The remaining Star Wars episodes may be released accordingly at the same time in the succeeding consecutive years, but will depend on the result of Episode 1 release, reports say.

George Lucas was quoted saying that ‘the “Avatar” experience convinced me that “Star Wars” is ready for the state-of-the-art 3D treatment’.

At least a year is needed to complete each conversion, as Lucas projects the process time to make sure each episode is as perfect as possible.

Currently, films are limited to 2,000-2,500 3D locations due to lack of installed base of projectors and screens in the US movie theaters, but they were reportedly adding 3D screens at a clip of 500 a month.
