Watch: First Trailer 'Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace' in 3D
The greatest saga of all-time… is coming to the big screen! Yep, here comes the hard sell. As promised with the poster a few weeks ago, the official 3D re-release trailer for George Lucas' Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is now playing in theaters with The Three Musketeers. The trailer has also hit the web on Apple (via Collider), but I'm not sure what's up with the colors, though I think it's because we may only be seeing one eye of the 3D. Oh and it's not really in 3D, obviously. There's not much Jar Jar, thankfully, but we get plenty of Darth Maul and the space battles. And Ewan McGregor screaming, briefly. Qui-Gon!
Watch the first "3D" trailer for Lucasfilm's Star Wars: Episode I 3D re-release, now via YouTube:
George Lucas' Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, originally released in late May of 1999, will be re-released in digital 3D in theaters everywhere starting February 10th early next year. This is the first of six planned re-releases for the entire Star Wars saga, progressing in numerical order (as long as this one is a success). Set against the thrilling and exotic backdrop of a "galaxy far, far away," Star Wars is perfectly suited to the immersive 3D theatrical experience, and Episode I delivers some of the Saga's most stunning and spectacular sequences – from the Naboo invasion to the Tatooine Podraces to the climactic lightsaber battle between Darth Maul and the Jedi. The 3D conversion was supervised by Industrial Light & Magic.
