George Lucas Talks about the Star Wars 3D Experience

In an exclusive with Entertainment Weekly, George Lucas explains how it was Rober Zemeckis and James Cameron who encouraged him to do 3D.  The guys that brought you Back to the Future and Avatar asked Lucas to join them in showing theater owners that 3D was a viable product.  Zemeckis and Cameron turned to Lucas because of his pushing for digital projectors in movie houses.  Since Lucas wanted digital theaters he saw this as a mean to achieve that.

But it was when he finally saw TPM in 3D that he really got behind the 3D bandwagon.  Lucas actually says he doesn’t care for the gimmicky stuff with 3D.  He doesn’t like things coming out of the screen.  For him 3D is about enhancing the depth of what you see on the screen.  He likens it to watching black and white movies versus color.  the movie’s still watchable in black and white, but it’s better in color.  Same thing with 3D in Lucas’s opinion.  Tomorrow the rest of us will find out for ourselves.

Catch the video of Lucas here.
