Movies, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Technology

 Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones will be released in 3-D on Sept. 20, 2013, followed by Episode III Revenge of the Sith on Oct. 4.

“This trilogy really builds as it continues,” says ILM’s Dennis Muren, “and Episodes II and III feature shots of increased complexity and detail that really lend themselves to a deeper, more powerful 3D experience. Also, the action definitely ramps up as the galaxy plunges into war, so there are more opportunities to place the audience in the thick of some truly spectacular sequences.”

Attack of the Clones includes thrilling chase scenes on the city-covered planet of Coruscant, intense ground battles on the rocky terrain of Geonosis, and the first-ever lightsaber duel featuring Jedi Master Yoda. Revenge of the Sith ends the prequel trilogy, telling the story of how Anakin Skywalker turns to the dark side to become the ultimate villain, Darth Vader, and takes viewers from lightning-fast dogfights to an epic lightsaber battle on the lava planet Mustafar.
