The “Star Wars” movies are being re-re-re-released in theaters. In 3-D this time! And since you want to put your best foot forward, George Lucas plans on starting this by rolling out “Episode I: The Phantom Menace” in 2012, so hopefully the end of the 3-D phase will coincide with a sudden and abrupt end to the carefree childhoods of many movie fans.
The idea would be to convert the flicks into 3-D by 2012 because that’s when there should be enough 3-D screens for a major, major release like that. And if the first movie is successful (read: if Lucas puts his boot against the metaphorical throat of your childhood nostalgia and double-checks that you aren’t holding anything out), they will keep releasing the next film in the series around the same time each year. And by the end of that release schedule, Lucas will just start showing up door to door, asking people if they liked “Star Wars,” and when they say yes, Rick McCallum will club them over the head and Lucas will ransack the place.
