George Lucas seems to move more slowly than other directors. Perhaps that’s because his projects are more widely anticipated than everyone else’s. Or maybe it’s because he actually moves more slowly than anyone else. In this interview with G4‘s”Attack of the Show,” Lucas discusses what the hold up is for “Star Wars: The Adventures Continue,” and why he wasn’t ready to convert the six Star Wars films to 3D…until now.
As for the TV show, Lucas has 50 hours of the arc crafted, but is just waiting for production costs to become way, way, way cheaper. Like a tenth of what they are for films. So that could be a minute. Essentially, he says he plans on doing it, but stop holding your breath, because it won’t happen soon.
As for the 3D discussion, he says he’s ready to convert for a February 10 release date for Episode I. Without getting too specific, he says he was waiting for the technology to be there, and now it’s there. So it’s on its way and looking good, by all accounts. If you thought Jar-Jar was up in your face before (metaphorically), wait until you see him in 3D when he’s really up in your face! LITERALLY!
I’m gonna go lay down. I feel sick.
