Rumor: 'Indiana Jones' Series is Going 3D Next After Star Wars
Honestly, I'm not too surprised to hear this. We knew it was coming, right? Blue Sky Disney, who is usually quite reliable with their scoops, is reporting (hence why why we're calling this a rumor for now) that, "next month, Lucasfilm will announce that they're converting the Indiana Jones Saga to 3D as well." It was officially announced about a month ago that Lucasfilm would be converting all six of the Star Wars movies to 3D, with the first hitting theaters in early 2012, and each one following a year later. Apparently that's the same release pattern they'll be following with the
three four movies from the Indiana Jones trilogy series.
Blue Sky doesn't have a lot information, such as when we'll see these 3D re-releases hit theaters, but I hope we don't have to wait until after 2017, when Return of the Jedi finally gets released. They do say that "Lucas has been bitten by the 3D bug since Avatar showed the possible/promise of the technology, so other parts of the Lucasfilm catalog could be on the horizon as well…" So does that mean we might see Labyrinth and/or Howard the Duck in 3D one day soon? Who knows. Unlike the Star Wars trilogy, I'm really not interested in watching any of the Indiana Jones films in 3D, they're way too sacred for that. But we'll wait for the official news next month to unleash our full disapproval. Until then, it's up to you guys. So what do you think?
