There are 5 new posters that were added to the ones already there for promoting the upcoming rerelease of Star Wars Episode 1 "The Phantom Menace" in 3D which is opening February 10th. 3 features Darth Maul a minor charter in the scheme of the Star Wars films but became one of the more popular of the characters in the franchise. One of the posters is of a light saber which has Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Queen Padmé Amidala,Qui-Gon Jinn, and Anakin Skywalker in a red glow. Another has the pod race scene, and another has the ore mentioned characters in a blue light which to me looks like a another light saber. Then there are others that I found one I saw when googling of Yoda in another language and one is the original one I first saw when the announcement of the rerelease.
Star Wars News Darth Maul returns and new trailer and poster for Episode 1 3D
It was just a matter of time that George Lucas would take advantage of the 3D technology to enhance his legendary saga of Star Wars. And he did not disappoint. All six films will be released in theater in story order with enhanced 3D effects. The first of course "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 3D” will hit the theater on February 14, 2011. I am sure a brand new 3D DVD package will follow soon after the releases . Most likely one at a time as the movies are released with a big box set soon after all have been already in the theaters. In other worlds like they had done in the past when George enhanced the effects with CGI's of the original 3 movies . As far as the other 5 films are concern no news yet on when they will hit the theaters. Of course I will keep an eye out and post those as soon as they become available.
The new poster (above ) and the the theatrical trailer that was attached to the 3 Musketeers film that premiered October 21st gives a glimpse of what to expect. I love this idea and was talking about it last year to my wife and friends saying I wish they would of made episode 1 and 4 in 3D because of certain scenes that would be a visual feast for the eyes. Of course I am talking about the famous race in episode 1 and the attack on the Death Star in episode 4. Seeing those on the big screen in 3D should be worth the price of admission itself especially if you have the chance to see in iMax 3D.
Other Star Wars news has the second most popular Sith Lord returning to the Star Wars empire. Darth Maul. Yep the one Sith Lord who in the scheme of the Star Wars saga only appeared in episode 1 and only for a half hour or so( give or take) but manage to capture audiences attention to the point that George Lucas green lighted his return to the Star Wars series the Clone Wars.
"The decision to continue Darth Maul's story was something that came directly from George, and we all agreed that his return needed to be unique, unexpected and revenge filled. We don't know what his outcome will be, and as a fan -- that's exciting."
