Universal Day of the Jedi

May the Force be with you all! Geeks of Doom will be posting a couple of Star Wars articles today, May 25, for Universal Day of the Jedi, which celebrates the anniversary of the release of the first Star Wars movie.

This year, Universal Day of the Jedi also celebrates the anniversary of Timothy Zahn’s novel, Heir to the Empire. The initial release of this novel 20 years ago this month is significant, because it was quite literally groundbreaking: its impact would open the floodgates for an amazing deluge of Star Wars novels and comics – turning the Expanded Universe into an EXPANDING Universe.

Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy, of which Heir to the Empire is the first part, is widely regarded by many fans as one of the best series of Star Wars books to ever have been released. Some fans even consider the trilogy to be the equivalent of the closest we may ever get to a Star Wars Sequel Trilogy. Timothy Zahn has continued his journeys into the Expanded Star Wars Universe through the years – exploring deeper into the history and legacy of Grand Admiral Thrawn, the continual growing relationship between Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade, and also the mysteries behind the enigmatic Outbound Flight.

I figured with this month being the anniversary of Zahn’s masterpiece, and also with today being Universal Day of the Jedi, it would be a good opportunity to take a look back at some of the finer examples of Star Wars novels over the years.

Star Wars 3DLucasfilm has announced that the first Star Wars 3D release, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, will hit theaters on February 10, 2012.

As outlined in the initial announcement on the Star Wars 3D releases, the plan is to re-release each Star Wars film newly converted to 3D every year, finishing in 2017. Both announcements from Lucasfilm have been met with mixed reactions from fans, though George Lucas has been publicly supportive of 3D technology in cinema along with James Cameron in the years leading up to his Avatar release.

All Six ‘Star Wars’ Movies To Get 3D Re-Release Starting With ‘Phantom Menace’ In 2012

Here we are. You all knew it was coming — most of you likely wishing as hard as one can wish that it would never actually become a reality — and George Lucas is not one to take a step back when something is glowing with dollar signs.

It’s been announced that all six Star Wars movies will be getting a shiny new 3D makeover, and then an eventual re-release into theaters. The plan is to start at the beginning, sending Episode I: The Phantom Menace out of the gate first in early 2012, and then releasing the films in order each year after that…all depending upon performance.

Lucas has always had an eye on re-releasing his saga in 3D with how popular the technology currently is, but he wanted to make sure it was being used in enough theaters before going for it. Also, Lucas’s urge to go 3D was solidified with the success of James Cameron’s Avatar, and he was ready to give his babies the new treatment.
