New Release: Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Today the re-release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace hits book stores. The new version features a new cover, and a new short story by James Luceno.

There was a lot of back and forth with Dave about Maul and Maul’s background. The two short stories that I’ve written for the re-release of Shadow Hunter and the re-release of The Phantom Menace novelization are going to deal a lot more with Maul’s background and Maul’s early years. They almost could be chapters lifted from Darth Plagueis, but I didn’t want to change the point of view and take the story into recounting Maul’s episodes as well.James Luceno

3D Phantom Menace a Test

June 14, 2011 at 12:30 pm | Posted in Movies, Star Wars News | Leave a comment

Star Wars producer Rick McCallum recently stated in an interview with Czech Position that while plans have been made to produce all six Star Wars movies in 3D, the first one (The Phantom Menace)is somewhat of a test.

“We’re doing 3D versions of all six films, one a year, starting in February of next year. We start with [episode] one and go all the way through six, totally chronological,” he said. But the first one is a somewhat of a test. “One a year, if they work. If they don’t, then there will be just one [episode converted to 3D].”

The remarks about 3D TPM were included at the end of an interview pertaining mostly to the live action TV series to be filmed (at some point) in the Czech Republic.

Star Wars Episode I In 3D Gets Official Release Date

March 3, 2011 at 5:03 pm | Posted in Movies, Star Wars News | Leave a comment

It has been long reported that all six Star wars movies were to be released as 3D versions. Today Lucasfilm ltd. and 20TH Century Fox announced the official release date of the first film. The best part is, it is less than a year away! Phantom Menace is scheduled to be released on February 10, 2012.

You umm... thought I was scary before, eh?

The complete text of the news release from TOS is as follows:

Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox announced today that the 3D theatrical launch of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace now has an official release date — February 10, 2012! Set against the thrilling and exotic backdrop of a “galaxy far, far away,” Star Wars is perfectly suited to the immersive 3D theatrical experience, and Episode I delivers some of the Saga’s most stunning and spectacular sequences — from the Naboo invasion to the Tatooine Podraces to the climactic lightsaber battle between Darth Maul and the Jedi. Supervised by Industrial Light & Magic, the meticulous conversion is being done with utmost respect for the source material, and with a keen eye for both technological considerations and artistic intentions.

How exciting to see the Battle of Naboo, the duel between Darth Maul and Jedi Knights Obi Wan Kenobi and Qui Gon Jinn or a pod race in 3D! Maybe the 3D treatment might even give Jar Jar Binks some love.

With this T-shirt we finally reach the zenith of geek culture.
