3D makeover for Star Wars

The hit space films are set to receive the Avatar treatment for theatrical re-release from 2012, and effects technicians are already promising the newly-revamped versions will be “fantastic”.

The first of the six movies to be converted into hi-tech 3D will be Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, but bosses are adamant they will not rush to complete the project.

Visual effects supervisor John Knoll says, “Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right. It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results.
