To mark 25 years since the film first hit theaters in 1999, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace is returning to theaters later this year!
This May the 4th weekend, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace will be re-released in theaters for a limited time, meaning you can revisit all your favorite moments as large and loud as George Lucas intended. Not only that, but the release is accompanied by epic new poster art from Matt Ferguson – with Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon ready to head into battle, Padmé standing her ground, and the ominous face of Darth Maul looming over it all.
There is no word if the 3D version of the film is going to be released in theaters, or if this is just the regular version. If you remember about a decade ago, before the Disney purchase, Lucasfilm planned to release all six films in theaters again in 3D. The only film to be released turned out to be Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, and then the purchase happened. Disney axed the rest of the releases, but work had already begun on a 3D version of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, but never saw the light of day.
If you have never experienced this one on a big screen, I highly suggest taking the family out to a viewing. After all, Star Wars was made for the big screen!
