‘Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace’ 3D Blu-ray Coming This Spring

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D Blu-ray will debut through Panasonic When LucasFilm released Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray back in September, Panasonic teamed up with the studio to package this set with its Blu-ray players. It seems Panasonic and LucasFilm are continuing their partnership, with Panasonic packaging Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D Blu-ray along with its 3D Blu-ray players.

While an insider claims the 3D Blu-ray will be available with Panasonic products as early as this spring, it seems a September release is more likely, since Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace just opened in theaters two weeks ago. Nothing has been confirmed by Panasonic or LucasFilm as of yet.

Fox Home Entertainment, which released Star Wars: The Complete Saga last year, has not released an official street date for the Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D Blu-ray. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any new information as soon as we have more details.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace was released May 19th, 1999.

        I don't think fans will have to worry because these look like they'll never be released to a wide audience anyway. They'll probably keep them exclusive to whomever buys a BD player.

        Panasonic did the same with the Avatar 3D Blu-ray almost 2 years ago and still no sign of a 3D version of Avatar in any store.

              Well of course it's going to be released on 3D blu-ray, and so will episodes II, III, IV, V, and VI when they are shown in 3D at the movies; then you'll get ANOTHER Saga box set collection, but this time it's in 3D! It never stops.....
