Star Wars II and III getting 3D releases in 2013

Prequels getting unveiled back to back

Star Wars is heading back to cinemas again, with the official Star Wars Facebook page confirming that the final two films in the prequel trilogy are to get the 3D re-release treatment.

Following on from this year’s re-release of Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Episode II: Attack Of The Clones and Episode III: Revenge Of The Sithwill get back-to-back cinema releases in 2013.

Episode II will open on 20 September 2013, while Episode III will open on 11 October 2013.

Though Episode I is easily the least popular film in the series, it still managed to rustle up $44m at the global box office, which is nothing to be sniffed at.

Previously, Lucasfilm revealed that each Star Wars film would get a 3D re-release on a yearly basis, beginning with Menace and ending with Return Of The Jedi.

So while most Wars fans won’t bother going to see the remaining prequels in 3D, the good news is that we may not have to wait long for the original trilogy to get a 3D revival.

Just think how good The Empire Strikes Back will look up there through a pair of 3D glasses...

      "Just think how good The Empire Strikes Back will look up there through a pair of 3D glasses..." More like think how creatively bankrupt Lucas is, that he has to keep re-re-releasing the same unloved prequels and violate the original trilogy until its completely unrecognisable. Lucas has spent almost 20 YEARS ON STAR WARS FILMS. All the while, his peers (Spielberg, Jackson, Scorcese and Cameron) have gone about pushing the boundaries of modern cinema. "I can't wait for the Star Wars 3D boxset! " That no-one said ever.

      The first one the least popular? I thought the 2nd one had no redeeming features at all! I can watch the Darth Maul fight over and over....but there is nothing that will make me watch the second one again! not even the jumping frog of Yoda

      Well Yoda wielding a lightsaber was pretty cool, and the scene inside the coliseum also kicked a*s.
