George Lucas is taking the "Star Wars" movies into a whole new galaxy, re-releasing each of the fantasy films as a 3-D spectacular.
The first of the films, "Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace," is expected to arrive in theaters on February 10, 2012, reports the L.A. Times. The plan is to roll out additional 3-D conversions of the remaining five flicks each year after that.
"Phantom Menace" isn't the only big 3-D blockbuster hitting screens in 2012. According to the L.A. Times, a 3-D conversion of James Cameron's "Titanic" will sail into theaters next April, with "Conan the Barbarian," "Fright Night" and "Adventures of Tintin" arriving later in the year.
Are you excited to see "Star Wars," and all those other movies, in 3-D?
