UPDATE! Celebration Anaheim 2015 to Screen All 6 Star Wars Films. The Original Trilogy in 2D and the Prequel Trilogy in 3D!

Celebration 2015

This actually will be the first official premiere of Revenge of the Sith in 3D. As you might remember back in September 2010, Lucasfilm announced their plan to release all 6 Star Wars movies in 3D. Episode II: Attack Of The Clones was to hit theaters in 3D on September 20th, 2013, while Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith was to play in 3D on October 11, 2013. But after Disney bought Lucasfilm they decided to postpone the 3D releases and focus on Episode VII…


So far The Phantom Menace was the only movie officially released in 3D in February 2012. Attack of the Clones had only a few 3D screenings and Revenge of the Sith was never shown in that format.


Now this is going to change.


Yakface found the following interesting info in the latest issue of Star Wars: Insider:


I received my latest issue of the Star Wars Insider today and was surprised to read that Revenge of the Sith will be making its theatrical 3D premiere during Celebration Anaheim in April. Attendees will be able to view the entire Prequel Trilogy in 3D (along with the Original Trilogy in non-3D) over the course of the four day event.







StarWars. com officially posted the news on their site. They also revealed how to get park admission discounts:

Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, in all its Order 66ing glory, will make its 3D debut at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, coming April 16-19, 2015. Fans will be the first to see this long-awaited, big-screen 3D conversion by Lucasfilm, completed with care for the look of the original movie while taking advantage of 3D’s stunning possibilities. 


But that’s not all — all the Star Wars films will screen at Star Wars Celebration, including The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones in 3D. Not a bad way to brush up on a galaxy far, far away before a certain new movie releases on December 18, 2015…


In other Star Wars Celebration news, Disneyland Resort Theme Park is discounting park admissions for the days before and after the show. Here are the details of the Lando-worthy deal: If you already have tickets for Star Wars Celebration, sign in to your ticket account and find a new link for the Disneyland discount. If you have not yet purchased tickets, you can buy them now, then grab your Disneyland Resort Theme Park discounted tickets after purchase. These special ticket prices will not be available once you arrive at the Resort, and tickets will only be valid from Monday, April 13, 2015, through Friday, April 24, 2015; the special ticket store for Celebration attendees closes at 9:00 p.m. PT on Wednesday, April 15, 2015. So make the jump to lightspeed and don’t delay.

    Hmmm. I read that too but didn’t think anything of it. Now on to my EW issue to see what secrets they’re talking about on page 40.:)

  • January 4, 2015 at 6:02 pm

    When was there a few AOTC 3D screenings? I thought plans for Clones and Sith had been cancelled.

    • January 5, 2015 at 1:56 am

      Superior version from 2011. To me that is the best version.
      Why would anyone want to watch old versions with crapy effects?

  • January 4, 2015 at 6:26 pm

    The unaunaltered OT?

    • January 4, 2015 at 6:44 pm

      I have the same question! Unaltered OT? Please say yes!

    • January 4, 2015 at 8:17 pm

      I think they would have explicitly said unaltered as opposed to just being in 2D..

    • January 4, 2015 at 8:29 pm

      Canon version.

      • January 4, 2015 at 9:01 pm


        Finally, it sounds appropriate. -_-

    If they are going to do that why not show all 6 in 3D ? And this is a moving on with StarWars year, not a go back to the past year. Doesn’t matter anyway since I live in Ohio.

    • January 4, 2015 at 7:30 pm

      Probably because they only got to finish most of the PT before Disney pulled the plug. So they probably just finished ROTS and didn’t bother with the OT.

      • January 4, 2015 at 9:06 pm

        Oh, shoot. 😉

        • January 5, 2015 at 5:21 am

          …Would you really want the OT whored out in 3D? At wouldn’t add anything, only detract

          • January 5, 2015 at 11:54 pm

            Of course not. Did you miss the wink? ;P

  • January 4, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    Just for the record, Tim Snow has been banned maybe 100 times already. He is using proxi IPs and no one can fight with that.
    I was hoping that he would understand but I was wrong.

    • January 5, 2015 at 8:43 am

      LOL @ 100 times.

      Can’t be more than 99 times, tops.

    • January 6, 2015 at 8:41 pm

      is he really so bad? just ignore him.

  • January 4, 2015 at 7:55 pm

    Now the PT can suck in all dimensions

    • January 4, 2015 at 8:02 pm


    • January 4, 2015 at 8:31 pm

      PT is great, just like OT.
      Move your hate somewhere else.

      • January 5, 2015 at 11:37 pm

        Nah… this seems like a nice place for it.

  • January 4, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    ohh he hates the prequels he must be a true sw fan!

  • January 4, 2015 at 10:26 pm

    I saw TPM in 3D for my birthday. I was really excited for the OT in 3D, even if they wouldn’t work as well as the PT considering the “lack” of CGI. I’m still excited for the release of AOTC and ROTS during the celebration!

  • January 4, 2015 at 11:24 pm

    I will skip the PT and just watch the OT. I try to imagine the World without PT.

    • January 5, 2015 at 1:45 am

      I will try to imagine the World without haters…

      • January 6, 2015 at 4:01 pm

        And I will try to imagine a world with a good prequel trilogy.

      • January 6, 2015 at 4:42 pm

        Couldn’t agree more. I am SO sick of Prequel hate.

  • January 5, 2015 at 12:20 am

    Here’s hoping for a 4K restoration of the OOT. No added CGI, no alteration of storyline, and ‘maybe’ the removal of obvious matte lines with digital compositing. And my main wish, proper color balance.

    • January 5, 2015 at 1:44 am

      I like new versions more.

    • January 5, 2015 at 2:00 am

      I just want Harmy’s Despecialized Editions on an official Blu-ray! Disney should work with them.

    • January 6, 2015 at 8:44 pm

      me too me too!
      They should give us just the old sh*t in best quality available!

      • January 6, 2015 at 10:37 pm

        Reliance media works did a 4k restoration of the OOT last year. My guess is it will either see a release later this year perhaps as some candy before Ep VII comes out… or will roll out with 4k bluray releases next winter… possibly both, maybe even theatrical re-release.

  • January 5, 2015 at 12:31 am

    All the way in Anaheim? Well, maybe they’ll get a wide release some day, or they’ll be released on 3D Blu-ray.

  • January 5, 2015 at 12:55 am

    Perhaps they are saving the 3-D versions of the OT films for release to theaters in the months leading up to episode 7.

    ANH – September 2015
    TESB – October 2015
    ROTJ – November 2015
    TFA – December 2015

    At the very least, they will probably release them the week prior to TFA to do marathon screenings that include ep7.

  • January 5, 2015 at 1:45 am

    I will watch all of them. Can not wait.

  • January 5, 2015 at 7:11 am

    I saw the phantom menace 3d and man i wish it was even close to the 3d release of the original jurassic park. AMAZING how good JP looked and thats a movie from 94. PM was kinda a crappy half ass 3d job. And im not a hater, i like the prequels, just hope they get a decent 3d transfer. Sith with good 3d would be awesome.

    • January 6, 2015 at 4:44 pm

      When we saw the footage of Episode II at the last Celebration, it looked INCREDIBLE… definitely much better than Ep. I. I thought the same thing you did – cool 3D, but not what I’d expected coming from Lucasfilm. The Ep. II stuff looked like they heard the fan complaints and really took those into consideration going forward.

  • January 5, 2015 at 9:04 am

    Mace windu will be the prequel character returning looking like his role in django sensing some shit bout to go down and hooking up with his brother Luke on skellig micheal – pleased with what he sees with lukes academy work – and scratching his beard that the prophecy can still happen through luke – like in ep 12 In 2025…
    Can you imagine the Coolest Jedi ever – kickin some ass with Luke – there’s also the possibility the cyborg is mace …. Re the hand and facial damage sustained.
    Something akin to this will nearly link the OT and PT.

    • January 5, 2015 at 9:36 am

      As much as I would like to see Sam L again, it ain’t going to happen. Mace is dead.
      Besides. Disney/ Marvel has enough work for him.

  • January 5, 2015 at 3:57 pm

    I like where Lucas was going with the Special Edition, but as he had no one to reel him in it did get a little out of hand, especially with Jedi. In a perfect world, we will eventually get a 4K version of the original trilogy with all the enhancements of the special edition minus the added scenes which were completely unnecessary. In other words, a frame for frame re-release but enhanced and remastered. For ex. – lightsabers, explosions, matte line removal, landspeeder vaseline removal, etc. 🙂

    • January 5, 2015 at 5:41 pm

      Agree with you,

      EXCEPT for the Lightabers. I love the original Lsaber effects, they had the appropriate sharp, flickering look you’d expect from a blade of pure light (or whatever it is Lightsabers emit).
      TESB / ROTJ was the apex of Lightsaber effects.
      ROTS Lightsabers just looked cartoony.
      I know I’m splitting hairs but those hairs matter.

      • January 5, 2015 at 11:32 pm

        Yep. Also totally unnecessary to beef up the explosions. The originals looked fine.

  • January 5, 2015 at 4:00 pm

    …and then you have to wait 8 months to see the new film. Moving the release to Dec. wasn’t a win for everyone.

    • January 6, 2015 at 12:00 am

      It wins where it matters. More time was needed to help do VII right.

  • January 5, 2015 at 4:38 pm

    … And this is the coolest thing I’ve heard about going on at Celebration this year.
    A disappointment to say the least.

  • January 5, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    Revenge o’da Sith was filmed like a 3D movie. It should have been released in 3D years ago.

    TESB was not filmed with 3D in mind… Dangerous territory, I don’t know, it’s a tough sell for me but it might work.

  • January 5, 2015 at 11:51 pm

    I bet they won’t announce what the first spinoff is until this event in April.

    Lucasfilm does such a shitty job providing info to the fans.
