STAR WARS: EPISODE I THE PHANTOM MENACE Coming To 3D Theaters February 10, 2012!!!

YES!!! Finally we have a release announcement on the 3D conversions of STAR WARS and thanks to all that forwarded me the news. I was a bit surprised by the later date as I thought it would be around the holidays, but no matter. What counts is we are finally seeing the classics we know and love being converted to 3D in a loving fashion.

Here's the official press release (emphasis is mine):
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (March 3, 2011) – 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.
