Hey look, it's five spiffily-designed posters for the 3D rerelease of The Phantom Menace, all apparently intended to remind us all of the days when we thought The Phantom Menace was a good idea. Anyone who was taking in oxygen back in 1999 will have memories of the delirious hype leading up to Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. The goodwill towards the Original Trilogy and George Lucas's rare status as a modern mythmaker combined with a perfectly calibrated marketing machine to create total pop-cultural permeation and a collective expectation that The Phantom Menace would inevitably be the greatest human achievement since the pillowcase. Then the movie actually happened and became a symbol of theatrical disappointment and narrative tone deafness.
Yesterday at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas, LucasFilm and Industrial Light Magic announced that that post production company Prime Focus has been hard at work on the 3D versions of all six films in the Star Wars saga, beginning with The Phantom Menace. That first film is set for theatrical release on February 10th of next year, with each subsequent film arriving at yearly intervals.
