Here's the first poster for Star Wars: Episode I- The Phantom Menace in 3D

Oct. 13, 2011by: Niki Stephens

How could I have possibly forgotten that the STAR WARS franchise was being converted to 3D? Maybe I've just been overloaded on all the shit that George Lucas added in that everyone griped about for so long. Well, now here's your chance to get all pissed off some more.

The first film to be released in chronological order is STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE. Here's this interesting poster for the 3D release. Who is the center of attention? Darth Maul. Where's little Annie? Glad to see that Jar Jars stupid face isn't on here. At least you've got Ewan there as Obi-Wan.

I can't say that I'll be seeing any of these in 3D. Makes my damn head hurt, plus there's the whole "conversion" aspect.

Click on the poster to view in hi-res over at the Pimpin' Poster Palace.

Apparently, typography, focus, repetition, juxtaposition, and balance (the basics)... these are all things of the Dark Side, and a path that should be avoided.

The only thing that got me excited was the line 'select 2-D theaters.'

Well I'll be honest here, and please be honest with yourselves, when I say that as much as I'm opposed to this project, come the original trilogy's time, even in 3D, how many will be able to resist and give in to the dark side?
I know I'll have a really hard time with A New Hope and Jedi and will most definitely give in for Empire.... Sorry.

Honestly, I'm done seeing it in the theater. When the 1999 'special' editions came out I saw them mainly since they were available on laserdisc (if you wanted good quality). Now that I have the theatrical versions on dvd, I don't need to see the crap versions of these movies in an even crappier fad format.

Sweet poster, R2D2 and Yoda were clearly two of the most prominent characters in the "movie".. I honestly think the people at Lucas Arts are just screwing with the fans at this point, and if so, well played

Couldn't have put it better myself. Visit his website and there's a wicked DVD you can order of him doing the Hellboy poster. It's 100 bucks though. :\

I think even if I wanted to go and see this (which I don't) I would resist the urge-- so strong would be the stigma against me and my family! Seriously, I'd rather be caught going in and out of a sex shop than watching a Star Wars prequel.

HOWEVER... I may just buck the trend and watch Empire Strikes Back when that comes around. Retro-fitted 3D is a complete waste of time, but I'll take any chance I can get to watch Empire on the big screen again.

Hahahaha

I love how much of an admission of guilt this poster is - Why not put the MAIN characters on your poster? Kiddy Anakin, Jar Jar, Amidala? Is it maybe because people might be reminded how shit the film was and won't want to see it? Yeah, let's put the characters on there that were so minor people actually gave them some kind of credence, and hope people don't remember. It's like this poster is them finally admitting that they fucked up royally.

Qui Gon?

The only good part of this movie was the Duel of the Fates between Qui Gon, Obi Wan, and Maul...how does Qui Gon get left off this poster? Garbage.

This movie is total shit, but I bet the race on Tatooine will look pretty bad-ass in 3d. I won't be seeing it ever though.

The central character on this poster should be Jar Jar Binks.
We should never forget that he was the blithering idiot who was ultimately responsible for Palpatine being granted emergency powers, leading to the Clone Wars, the fall of the Old Republic, the formation of the Galactic Empire and 20+ years of tyranny.

There's something seriously wrong with your Evil Masterplan (and scripts) when everything hinges on a single idiotic decision made by the most unpopular character in the entire series. It almost feels like George Lucas is using his position as writer to give the finger to every single person who ever voiced their dislike of Jar Jar.

Darth Maul FTW!

I'm glad Maul's the center of attention. Can you seriously argue that he wasn't the coolest aspect of that film (or even all three prequels) by far? He could have been Vader's Vader. He could have had an epic rivalry with the Jedi, possibly even having one of the final battles with Anakin in Episode 3, allowing Anakin to kill the Sith Lord. How awesome would that have been. Passing of the torch, so to speak. But no, he had 10minutes of screentime before being cut in half.

Anyway, I won't be

Anyway, I won't be seeing this. 3D sucks, and as cool as Star Wars is, Episode 1 is something I'll just revisit on TV or Blu-Ray from time to time.

Maybe if Lucas had not killed Maul off in the first one, he would have had time to actually develop as a character and a masterful villain. Among Lucas' many mistakes with the prequels was not keeping consistent villain from film to film. Sure Palpatine was there but he was so behind the scenes. It should have been Maul all the way through, instead of Christopher Lee's boring, poorly written character and that stupid robot General what's his face.

Exactly. He had the makings of a true Sith Lord, unlike Dooku who had a lightsaber resembling his limp penis. Geez. I can only imagine the kinds of awesome that could have been if Maul were developed well and made into Anakin's arch-nemesis, only to have Anakin ironically kill Maul using rage and vengeance, therefore becoming a Sith Lord himself. Almost everything about these prequels sucks donkeynuts.

Converting this to 3D is like replacing the lightsabers with Teletubbies. 3D is a detractor. I'm so repulsed now I will actually move farther away from the nearest theater.

i agree. that's a crap poster. i hate how lucas uses these really awful photoshops for the posters and covers. just spend a little o' that dough you made and spice it up a little. or just bring drew strauzin outta retirement. as far as the 3D goes, i'll probably go see star wars and empire and maybe jedi but not the prequels.
