Just when you thought LucasFilm couldn’t wring any more money from the Star Wars films comes word that Episodes I – VI will be re-released in theaters in 3D!

Seriously, George? I gotta tell you, if there’s anything worse than gimmicking a film to use 3D, it retrofitting a film to use 3D.

But maybe that’s just me. I’m sure there are legions of fans who will welcome this news with eager wallets. And they can do so beginning in 2012 (the now-certain end of the world) when The Phantom Menace will rear it’s 3D head. Every year, a new episode will be re-released in 3D, meaning that in 2017 you can see the Ewoks in all their comin’-at-‘cha splendor.

Hmmm…that also means 3D metal bikini. May have to rethink my stance on this issue…
