Hot Off the Press: Star Wars I in 3D, Katy Perry Platinum Album, Kipling Promo, Ultimate Global Pinoy, HYD Promo & WWF Bid for Nature!

STAR WARS EPISODE 1 THE PHANTOM MENACE” IN 3D SCREENS ON FEB. 9

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… Remember this line? It was first flashed twenty years ago in movie theaters around the world, and now you will once again see the lines - in 3D! 


In Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace converted into 3D, Lucas takes us back to the beginning, in which Darth Vader is a hopeful nine-year-old boy named Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi is a determined young Jedi knight.  This first chapter, which is rich in art, design, costumes, architecture and technology, follows Anakin’s journey as he pursues his dreams and confronts his fears in the midst of a galaxy in turmoil.


George Lucas, the pioneering and brilliant filmmaker behind STAR WARS, has overseen the process with his renowned attention to detail. John Knoll, the visual effects supervisor for Lucasfilm's Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) was responsible for the actual conversion. He served as Visual Effects  Supervisor on all three of the Star Wars prequels. The remaining five STAR WARS films will be converted to 3D over the coming years.

Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace in 3D comes to theaters on February 9 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
