Say what you will about the prequels, George Lucas has proved time and again that Star Wars is still big business. In February of this year he re-released part one of the Saga, The Phantom Menace in 3D. Regardless of how you feel about 3D effects, there’s no denying that Lucasarts and Industrial Light and Magic are the companies that are going to do them right, and there are scenes throughout the series just begging for the treatment. The trench run that marks the climax of Episode IV? Yes please. How about the speeder bike chase through Endor in Episode VI? Sign me up. And what about the Millenium Falcon being chased through an asteroid field by pursuing Imperial force? Hell yes. I can’t even imagine how breathtaking the large-scale battles of Episodes II and III are going to look.
But it turns out I know just how long I will have to wait. Fresh out of Celebrations VI, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith have been given release dates – both of them in 2013.
That’s right, they’re being released back to back. Released back in 2002 and 2005 respectively, Attack of the Clones will be hitting theaters on September 20, 2013, followed by Revenge of the Sith on October 11, 2013. Mark your calendars and make sure your Jedi robes are back from the dry cleaners next fall. I’ll see you there.
