Finally Some Good Posters for 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace' 3D
Most of the posters we've seen for the return of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in 3D have been unimpressive and lackluster at best (see here). However, someone in the marketing department at Lucasfilm Ltd. finally got on the ball and used the best points of the film, lightsabers, the pod racing sequence and Darth Maul, to get audiences back into the theaters and send George Lucas some more of their money. My personal favorites are the ones that utilize the glowing lightsaber blades and still keep the aesthetic of the original poster from all the way back in 1999, but you can decide for yourself. See ’em below!
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.
