'Star Wars': Lucasfilm announces prequel 3-D release dates
Blame Jar Jar Binks. In the wake of last winter’s successful 3-D release of The Phantom Menace, Lucasfilm has announced that the movie’s fellow prequels, Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, will be translated into the third dimension as well.
According to the official Star Wars Facebook page, these films will hit theaters again next fall. Clones will begin playing Sept. 20, 2013, while Sith will follow on Oct. 11.
George Lucas’s movies won’t be 2013’s only major re-releases. Universal announced two weeks ago that Jurassic Park 3D will debut on April 5, while Disney revealed in 2011 that enhanced versions of both Monsters, Inc. and The Little Mermaid will appear in theaters on Jan. 18 and Sept. 13, respectively.
