Somehow, someway, it appears George Lucas is ready push yet another button on his loyal fan base. Just months after the dust up over the changes made to the films for the long-awaited Blu-ray release of the complete saga, there’s a strong rumor that Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace will be quickly released on 3D Blu-ray this spring, after its current run in theaters wraps up. Pocket-lint reports the film will likely replace Avatar as the bundled film of choice with Panasonic Blu-ray players, though whether it’ll be an exclusive is unknown. Of course, all of this is still unknown, but given the track record of those involved, it sadly makes sense. Each Star Wars film is scheduled to be released in 3D yearly in theaters, so a similar 3D Blu-ray schedule would follow suit. So let’s see: You can buy the complete boxed set now on Blu-ray, or buy each individual 3D release, or wait until 2018 to buy the 3D boxed set–or, of course, buy all of the above. Hey George, wouldn’t it just be easier to take our blood?
