In news that will either thrill – or horrify – fans, George Lucas announced that the Star Wars films will be brought back to theaters in 2012 – in 3D.

Lucas has long voiced his disdain for 3D, but the success of Avatar has reportedly made him re-think his views.

After the Golden Globes earlier this year, he told Access Hollywood, “Haven’t been a big fan of 3-D, but that movie definitely improves in [the field of] 3-D … we’ve been looking for years and years and years of trying to take ‘Star Wars’ and put it in 3-D,” Lucas explained to “Access.” “But, [the] technology hasn’t been there. We’ve been struggling with it, but I think this will be a new impetus to make that happen.”

All six of the Star Wars films will be released. Variety is reporting that “Episode I: The Phantom Menace” will be the first of the films to be released.

  • Lucas: If you’re gonna do this, do it right. Release the series starting with the first one, and redo some of the animation on the older films to fit with the incredible 3D technology we have today. Don’t half ass this. It could be legendary and re-establish Star Wars with a new generation.
