Mark Your Calendars for the 3D Releases of Star Wars Episode II and III in 2013


In case you missed it Lucasfilm has confirmed the new theatrical release dates for the upcoming 3D versions of the next two films in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones will release, for a limited time only, in U.S. theaters on September 20, 2013, followed shortly by Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith on October 4, 2013.

"This trilogy really builds as it continues," says ILM's Dennis Muren, "and Episodes II and III feature shots of increased complexity and detail that really lend themselves to a deeper, more powerful 3D experience. Also, the action definitely ramps up as the galaxy plunges into war, so there are more opportunities to place the audience in the thick of some truly spectacular sequences."

International release dates will be announced soon.

No word on the re-release of Episodes VI, V and VI in 3D. I believe it is Lucasfilm's intent to release them in 2014 to bridge the gap for Episode VII in 2015. We may learn more about this during Disney's D23 Expo or Star Wars Celebration Europe II in 2013. Just a thought.
